Stratus Technologies, a longtime partner of ThinManager, has developed and released a new server, the Stratus ztC Edge. Stratus supported the ThinManager platform when it was produced by ACP and now as part of Rockwell Automation line of products. We are pleased to share this release information and welcome an amazing new piece of technology to the industrial ecosphere.
ThinManager 10 is full of new features to make life easier from the administrator to the end user. This version puts a focus on security and productivity and we are ready to tell about some of these exciting new features. Let’s take a look at what’s new.
Authentication Passthrough (productivity)
A successful login into a ThinManager terminal will now pass a security token into FactoryTalk Security, and any running session(s) of FactoryTalk View SE on that terminal will automatically take that security token to log in the associated user. For instance, if you have multiple sessions being delivered to a terminal in a control room environment, this will dramatically simplify the login process.
