1. Limit and secure credential access. 

Manufacturers tend to release products with insecure credential management, including having administrative controls that are open and discoverable. By limiting access to both privileged users and general users, they can better secure and lock down administrative controls.

healthcare apps
hello thank you for the interesting post. I used the app for medical cards https://itechcraft.com/custom-healthcare-solutions/ like here. It is really very convenient for doctors and patients. Do you think if we use applications and technologies it will make medicine cheaper. And how can I determine the degree of security applications?
