Passportal Announces Integration of Ocular Platform with ConnectWise Control

Passportal now integrates with ConnectWise Manage™, ConnectWise Automate™ & ConnectWise Control™, delivering automated password security and improved technician efficiency.

CALGARY, AB, June 13, 2017 – Passportal announced today a convenient and secure way of authenticating passwords with individual authorized technicians while they are using ConnectWise Control, formerly ScreenConnect, a remote control and remote access solution for technology solution providers.

This new and empowering integration eliminates the need for technicians to leave a ConnectWise Control session to access the password required to perform a remote session or task. The result is faster ticket resolution, greater technician efficiency and increased security for the MSP and the organizations served. 

The new integration empowers technicians with secure and immediate access to credentials and passwords via security groups inside the Passportal Ocular platform. Technician access  occurs automatically within the ConnectWise Control session and is logged, tracked, and reported within the Ocular dashboard. This reporting will protect both the ITSP and the end client with fully documented password access.

Dan Wensley, President of Passportal, said, “Our existing partners are already benefitting from integrations with ConnectWise Manage and ConnectWise Automate and have been asking for this new integration. We are excited to expand our integration with ConnectWise, adding to the business value and peace of mind Passportal delivers to channel partners and the organization they serve.”

Jeff Bishop, General Manager of ConnectWise Control, said the ability for channel partners to connect with Passportal within ConnectWise Control offers immediate access to login credentials for the session where they are working. “Our mutual channel partners will be pleased with the new integration and the added efficiencies and security measures it provides to their operations,” he said.

Long-term ConnectWise partner Tim Beard, CEO of Networthy Systems, has been leveraging the new integration to drive greater efficiency within his organization and notes his techs are becoming big fans. “This plugin rocks and has made it easier and more secure to use ConnectWise Control and deliver exceptional service to our customers,” he said. “The integration has improved security and the way we use the software every single day.”

Passportal products are distributed by ConnectWise and now integrate with ConnectWise Manage, ConnectWise Control and ConnectWise Automate.  For more information, visit www.passportalmsp.com or call 888-870-7840.
