Feature 2: Extensive security options

Naturally, you have to consider an authentication method before you introduce a remote access system.

But this can mean more than just a username and password, or a specific person or terminal. Every company has its own philosophy or policy on what works best for them. Rather than deciding for them, we give them the tools to decide for themselves.

Security options can be added as needed!

SWANStor provides a wide range of authentication options - for example, terminal authentication and one-time passwords - which can be combined to meet your specific needs. We're also prepared to discuss your needs and offer the options necessary to best meet those needs.

Product Comparison

As you can see, SWANStor has many advantages compared to other corporate solutions. First of all, it does not require you to set up an additional firewall.

Further, SWANStor can be integrated without compromising your company's existing firewall. In addition, all information required for remote access, such as user authentication information, access management information, and logs, is stored securely on a local area network, completely protected from outside intrusion.

Secure access by SWANStore

Other methods which bypass your firewall may allow outside access to your authentication information, creating security risks. Implementing the procedures necessary to protect against this risk can require significant money and time.

High security risk

With our software, all complicated Internet gateway services are controlled and monitored by AreaBe Japan 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All you have to do to maintain a secure remote access environment is install a SWANStor server on your internal system and protect it with your existing firewall.
