Serving Behind The Scenes

Optima's Central Core

The Remote Commander Server (RCS) provides a suite of Microsoft® Windows® based services.

It secures and regulates access to Optima products. Manage your RCS remotely to increase productivity.

Offers a redundancy mode with data replication for backup purposes.

For All Optima Devices

Manage &
Secure Access

RCS centralizes user management tasks in one convenient central spot. You get all the tools necessary to empower your admins.
 
Whether assigning roles, authenticating users, managing credentials, or administering device access. Down to the individual port level — it's all here.
 
RCS supports special modes that allow users to carry out their assigned workload. Even when parts of the network may be down. Or while users cannot reach your central servers.
 
And yes, we provide provisions to limit or extend these. All fall-back options are configurable according to your policies.

Cross-Check Your Administrators

Approve With Confidence

RCS supports cross-checking to improve network security. This reduces inadvertent mistakes and helps prevent malicious actions by a disgruntled actor.

Cross-checking is a method which requires approval of a second admin for validation. Actions of one administrator are pending until approved by another.

Once approved, the pending changes are turned into valid actions. If denied, RCS just rolls back the attempted changes. Confidence in action!

Mining
Your
Data

Harden Your Network

Automatic Configuration Backups

RCS simplifies the backup of device profiles, configuration files and ecoLOGIC Application settings. Given a list of remote sites, the server collects all these settings automatically.

Eliminate error prone manual procedures. Specify a schedule instead. Then relax. You control how many generations of your data/backups remain in the database.

And when it is time to purge the oldest: let RCS build up a timeline to document changes. It increases efficiency, avoids human error and reduces clutter.

Warehouse All Your Files

Data From Remote Corners

Configure RCS to collect and data-warehouse all Optima ecoLOGIC Application log files. Eliminate tedious, error prone and time-consuming manual procedures.

RCS streamlines collating log files from many remote sites. Once stored in the central database, users can turn logs into customizable reports.

Log User Activities

Follow The Trail

Track user activities across a variety of Optima products. Utilizes the RCS User Session Logs and RC Client Logs.

Peruse all actions by an individual. Specify a time frame, no matter which Optima device might have been accessed. Or uncover all actions performed on a single unit, regardless of who carried it out.

Allows exporting the activities to a spreadsheet for further analysis, reporting or compilation.
