AuthPoint, de Multifactor Authentication oplossing van WatchGuard
PASSWORDS ARE INSUFFICIENT
Every day, cyber criminals use stolen credentials to access and infect systems or steal data. What’s most needed to reverse this trend is for authentication to require additional proof of identity beyond simple username and password, and to be widely deployed by all companies – no matter their size.
MFA KEEPS IMPOSTERS OUT
WatchGuard AuthPoint™ is the right solution at the right time to address this security gap with multi-factor authentication on an easy-to-use Cloud platform. With a simple push notification, the AuthPoint mobile app makes each login attempt visible, allowing the user to accept or block access right from their smartphone. WatchGuard’s unique approach adds the “mobile phone DNA” as an identifying factor to further ensure that only the correct individual is granted access to sensitive networks and Cloud applications.
INTUITIVE, CLOUD MANAGEMENT
MFA has been out of reach for some organizations due to the complex integrations and burdensome on-premises management, which makes it impossible to implement without a large IT staff and considerable up-front expense. By contrast, WatchGuard’s AuthPoint solution is a Cloud service, so there’s no expensive hardware to deploy, and it can be managed from anywhere using WatchGuard Cloud’s intuitive interface. Additionally, our ecosystem offers dozens of integrations with 3rd party applications – ensuring that MFA protection is broadly applied for access to sensitive Cloud applications, web services, VPNs and networks. AuthPoint users can sign in once to access multiple applications, and they appreciate being able to add 3rd party authenticators, such as for Facebook or Google Authenticator, to the friendly mobile app.
