What makes a remote access solution truly powerful is a combination of one user interface, one URL and one set of security rules. When it comes to remote access management, simplicity is king.

IT pros managing data centers with massive mixed network environments, long lists of remote access protocols and applications, multiple user interfaces, and what often feels like way too many tools are increasingly searching for remote access management solutions that are both efficient and secure to use as well as cost effective to deploy.  According to Minicom, a global leader of remote IT management solutions, there are a number of key criteria that can be used as a benchmark when choosing a remote access solution.

 

“With remote access management, simplicity is the key to success in a data center,” says Eran Kessel, Minicom's vice president, marketing and products.  “CIOs and IT managers should be able to continue to use familiar tools, but have a single pane of glass where they can easily see, coordinate and manage all the IP addresses, passwords, and infrastructure information they need to not only run the data center smoothly on a day-to-day basis, but to expedite remediation in the event of an IT emergency.”

There are a myriad of remote access solutions on the market today, and choosing the right one can be a difficult task.  That's why Minicom has put together a checklist of the top seven “must-have” criteria in remote access management.
