Executing Command Line on Remote Systems

I have been a huge fan of PsExec ever since I became and SCCM Administrator. The problem with PsExec is that it transmits credentials in clear text. There is a great alternative to this and it is PAExec. It is freeware and can be redistributed. It has all of the same functionality as PsExec with a few additional minor features. You can get the software at PowerAdmin.

Whilst that was the case with psexec, according to http://blogs.technet.com/b/sysinternals/archive/2014/03/07/updates-process-explorer-v16-02-process-monitor-v3-1-psexec-v2-1-sigcheck-v2-03.aspx from version 2.1 and above PSExec "encrypts all communication between local and remote systems, including..the user name and password under which the remote program executes"
