Providing access to your applications in the office or on the road can significantly improve overall productivity, but it can leave you open to security breaches. By securing your applications using strong (two-factor) authentication, you can prevent outsiders from accessing your applications and allow anytime/anywhere access to your users.
Through ISSL’s strong authentication provider, Feitian Tehnologies, we can implement cost-effective and trustworthy security solutions into your applications that will increase productivity, save on costs, and boost your ROI.
ISSL’s Strong Authentication Software and Hardware Solutions
The two most common strong authentication solutions for application access are One Time Password (OTP) tokens and smart cards. Both of these types of devices generate a password that is valid for only one login session or transaction. They are easy to use and will immediately add that level of security you need to feel confident that no intruders will access your applications.
Where your users need access to a number of password-protected applications during one login session, we can also provide single sign-on functionality, which means once the user is signed in, they will not require a different password each time they change applications.
Benefits of Using Strong Authentication for Application Access
Remote access to your applications will significantly improve on overall efficiency as users will be able to access applications in real-time. Internally, instead of relying on HR to manage and oversee cumbersome password administration, our strong authentication tool will automate that process for you, leaving your HR staff available to do other things. Finally, by preventing security breaches to your applications, you are avoiding the dangers of your data getting into the wrong people’s hands. These are three very convincing reasons to incorporate strong authentication into your applications today.
Why Strong Authentication for Application Access is Essential
Do your employees need access to your applications at any time, from the office or remotely, using either a mobile device or a non-company computer? Do you need to make your applications available to vendors and customers or other types of users?
The days of only using Virtual Private Networks (VPN) for remote access are over. Today, strong authentication is the only way you can prevent intruders from accessing your applications as it requires two levels of authentication:
1. Via a PIN or password when logging on through the VPN
2. Via a token or smart card that generates a unique password for every login session
