Minicom Advanced Systems, a leading developer of remote access and KVM switch solutions for the data center, announced today that Network Products Guide, industry's leading information technology research and advisory guide has named AccessIT, a winner of the 2010 Product Innovation Awards. This annually venerated award recognizes and honors vendors, large and small, from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.
AccessIT is a Web-based remote access management solution that simplifies the daily routines of IT staff and dramatically enhances the organization's IT efficiency and productivity. Using AccessIT's intuitive GUI, which provides an overview of the entire system in a single screen, IT administrators can access the many protocols and applications that they need to manage quickly and easily. AccessIT has single sign-on, which means that after the initial log in, users can access all web devices and URLs without logging in again. When the system crashes, IT managers shave critical seconds off downtime, ensuring that mission critical applications are restored with minimal disruption to end-users. A unique, open platform system, this cost-effective approach saves on IT expenditure by preserving past investments and preventing vendor lock-in, with support for all industry-leading, in-band and out-of-band remote access protocols. IT managers rave about the simplicity of AccessIT and its short training time. To read more about this product innovation, please visit networkproductsguide.com/innovations/.
