Remote admin

To achieve maximum productivity, one must effectively balance security and convenience when remotely administering a large number of systems. However, most installations tend to either extreme: zero convenience, or zero security.

In the former case, administrators are forced to manually log in to each machine, tying up valuable resources when performing a global change or audit. Usually, the login method sends easily-capturable, unencrypted passwords, cancelling out any security benefit.

In the latter case, automated login is accomplished through an insecure authentication method such as rlogin, providing minimal protection from an attacker.

The best solution resides somewhere in the middle, utilizing standard, secure components and practices. Ursetto Consulting, Inc. possesses the know-how and experience to implement an efficient remote administration environment, without sacrificing security or convenience.
