Control data access

You don't need the administrative assistant accessing the 2013 revenue targets the executive team is working on. Central Desktop gives you the power to control what every user can see or do.

  • User authentication: encrypt each username and password combination with a unique one-way hash.

  • User permissions: several different roles determine what individual users can see or do.

  • Complete activity and audit logs: see what actions individual users have taken.

  • Application security measures: prevent customer data cross-over and ensure complete customer data segregation.

  • Strong encryption: Central Desktop helps prevent cyber snooping and hacking by using secure HTTPS URLs with 256-bit SSL, the same kind that banks rely on. TLS encryption, a layer of protection that helps keep Central Desktop email notifications safe from prying eyes. In addition all data and files are encrypted at rest with industry standard AES.

  • IP restrictions: Restrict access to only your trusted IPs or networks.

  • Password complexity: Force users to set hard-to-crack passwords and change them after a set period of time.

  • Single sign-on: Large organizations can utilize their existing Active Directory / LDAP protocols to automatically login Central Desktop users. Central Desktop Single Sign is compatible with Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) v2 and Microsoft's Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0.
