Krontech Introduces Offering for Companies Facing Access Control System (ACS) End of Life Decisions

“Krontech collaborated with several of our largest customers and other technology partners to create a solution that is simpler to implement, much more scalable, and built from the ground up for virtualized networks.”

Krontech™ (KRONT.IS), a global leader in Privileged Account Management systems, announced today it has been implementing and continues to roll out a full-featured, full-service replacement for Access Control System (ACS) based on TACACS+ and Radius for device network authentication and administration.

In December 2016, it was announced that ACS will no longer be supported, which has been a defacto industry standard for device network authentication and administration. End of life has already occurred for numerous customers and will impact the remaining by August 2018. Virtually every enterprise organization around the world will be impacted by this decision and will need to decide on a plan to support TACACS+ and Radius authentication capabilities.

Krontech is offering a proof of concept of Single Connect, free of charge, to support the end of life challenge for ACS users. Krontech collaborates with IT teams by reviewing existing ACS deployments to ensure organizational requirements are replicated and/or improved with our Single Connect platform….
