Right Click Tools and Admin Rights

Right Click Tools Community enables tens of thousands of SysAdmins to use ConfigMgr with ease and convenience. Tasks that used to take hours are now actioned at the (right) click of a button. Customers consistently state: 

“Since we started to use Right Click Tools, our work with SCCM (ConfigMgr) is much easier. . . . once you start using RCT, it’s practically impossible to work without them.” 

“Having worked with SCCM/ConfigMgr for around 7 years, I can’t imagine trying to carry out my role without having Right Click Tools installed.” 

The catch? Right Click Tools Community, the free version, requires admin rights to function. This puts IT leadership and CISOs in a quandary over security. 

Thankfully, Recast Management Server (RMS) to the rescue! Recast Management Server (RMS), a Right Click Tools Enterprise feature, powerfully blends functionality and security. Let’s take a closer look at Recast Management Server, the solution to power up Right Click Tools and harden your IT security.

The Hurdles of Admin Rights 

Admin rights come with their own set of challenges and security risks. According to a 2021 survey by Centrify, 53% of those breached suffered privileged credentials theft within their enterprises.  

Within the Microsoft ecosystem specifically, restricting access to admin rights would have prevented 94% of critical vulnerability breaches within Microsoft software. These statistics are precisely why many IT leaders are hesitant to grant admin permissions broadly within their teams. 

A Win-Win: Recast Management Server (RMS) 

Recast Management Server (RMS) is a feature available with Right Click Tools Enterprise and serves as a centralized web interface that integrates with Right Click Tools, Endpoint Insights, and Privilege Manager, enabling you to use these powerful tools without the need for admin rights.

Security Controls 

With RMS, you can provide Active Directory users or groups with access to right-click actions comparable to the roles given to them in ConfigMgr. Need to let a help desk user retrieve a BitLocker recovery key but not reset it? RMS has you covered. 

Custom Routing and Configurations 

RMS enables you to control your routes, allowing you to determine which Recast Proxy to use for specific actions. You can even configure routes for access to devices over the ConfigMgr Fast Channel. 

Monitoring and Visibility 

Keep tabs on your Recast Agents and Recast Proxies through RMS. You can also audit all of the actions your SysAdmins take. This added layer of visibility ensures you are always in control of your enterprise infrastructure. 

A Clarion Call to Managers
