This Quick Take video demonstrates one of the fundamental Xton Access Manager functions – connecting to a Windows host without exposing the credentials that are actually being used.
Below are several important focus points to highlight from the video:
- Remote Windows desktop is displayed in the client browser directly using HTML5. There is no special software required on the client side including ActiveX, applets or anything else. The connection looks the same in any modern HTML5 browser on Windows or Linux desktop or mobile device. This approach simplifies deployment and maintenance of Xton Access Manager and provides better control over sessions.
- Xton Access Manager does not transmit the remote Windows account password to the client browser. The password is used by Xton server to connect to a remote Windows desktop.
- The session could be recorded to play back by administrators or auditors later
- An auditor or an administrator might join or terminate the session while it is in progress
- A user might open multiple sessions to different remote computers or devices at the same time.
- A user might be granted permissions to connect to a remote Windows computer with or without recording a session. In this case the user might choose the connection type. Alternatively, a user might be granted permissions to connect to a remote computer with session recording only. In this case the only Connect button would be available for the user on the Xton GUI
