Key-Features of our Secure Remote Access Solution

Authenticating technicians

A robust security strategy must begin even before the user logs in. To tighten the login process we have MFA, 2FA, SSO, and an extra layer of security with SAML for SSO. You can enable 2FA with authenticator apps such as Zoho OneAuth, Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, and Duo. Additionally, you can customize your password policy by number of invalid login attempts, lock out duration, password length, and more.

Encrypted and password-protected screen recording

With Remote Access Plus, you can securely enable screen recording, and set a password to protect and restrict who can download and view the recordings. To avoid privacy complications, you can notify the end user whenever a session is being recorded. Remote Access Plus zips your videos, tightly encrypting them to avoid exposing sensitive data.

Secure file transfer

There are no limits to what format of file you can transfer. Whether EXE or a license certificate, everything travels through an encrypted tunnel. Remote Access Plus couples the file transfer feature with the latest security standards to protect your data, files, and sensitive folders from cyberattacks.

Additional layer of security for roaming users

Remote sessions are often established over the internet. To increase the security fence, we have an exclusive server that acts as a gateway to protect your data from being exposed to the web. Any communication or data transfer to the central server from roaming computers will pass through the Secure Gateway Server to avoid threats and vulnerability attacks.

Compliance customizations

Large-scale organizations to start-ups strive to be compliant with certain basic policies like HIPAA, the GDPR, and PCI DSS. Since remote access may affect privacy, we have customizations to require user approval before initiating a remote session or accessing their command prompt or file manager.

Privileged-based restrictions

Enterprise organizations might have multiple technicians and a single super admin accessing their product console. To avoid confusion, and to establish restrictions over the technicians, we have exclusive role-based actions. You can create multiple roles with different levels of access to the product module, providing full control over a specific module, restricting to read-only mode, or even completely hiding particular tabs.
