Smart Cards for Remote Authentication in the Access Console

During an access session, a user may need to operate with administrative rights in order to access the remote computer. In environments where security implementations require smart card use for authentication, BeyondTrust enables the user to pass administrative credentials to the remote computer from a smart card resident on the user's local system.
