Multi-Factor Authentication


May19

Multi-Factor Authentication enables your users to secure their logins and transactions via text, email, smartphone application, or phone calls.

Our a2c Mobile app is available on most major smartphone platforms, and lets users easily generate one-time passcodes without the cost and hassle of hardware tokens. iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone users can push login or transaction details to their phone, allowing for immediate, one-tap approval.

Older devices such as basic cellphones and landlines are also fully supported. authen2cate can send passcodes via text message or place a phone call; users just press a button on their keypad to execute the authentication process. Risk-Based Authentication is the process of assessing risk during the authentication process based on factors such as the user’s location, IP address, browser settings, and hundreds of other metrics. If the factors are not what is expected, authen2cate will require additional steps during the authentication process to ensure the user is authorized to access the application.

Methods include secure push notifications, one-time passcodes (OTP), PIN via email or SMS, hard or soft tokens, and certificates. authen2cate has all of your requirements covered with options and flexibility to protect your critical and sensitive resources. Need different types of Multi-Factor Authentication for different user groups or applications? Our solutions can address even the most complex of situations:

  • Single application

  • Any Device from Any Location

With devices getting smarter and more capable, accessing your applications securely must be a priority. authen2cate can help you manage access to your network and your applications for virtually any device from inside and outside your internal network. a2cMobile

If you want to secure on-the-go access or implement better identity management, the a2cMobile app is for you. As technology evolves, users want, expect, and often require access to internal systems 24/7 from any location. Our advanced mobile authentication application offers “True” 2-Factor Authentication, as well as advanced features like Password Reset, Account Unlock, and Offline Passcodes, all with fingerprint touch ID options.

Multi-Factor Authentication

a2cMobile can generate secure push notifications and one-time passcodes (OTP) for a user to log into your portal or any application with Multi-Factor Authentication enabled. Most industry compliance guidlines and requirements from HIPAA, HITECH, PCI, FIPS, NIST, and others require or highly recommend some form of Multi-Factor Authentication for remote access. Authentication using a2cMobile is fast, convenient, and most importantly, secure.

Password Reset and Account Unlock

40% of all help desk calls are to handle password-related issues. When users forget or want to reset their passwords, a2cMobile works similarly to multi-factor by requiring users to approve an initiated password reset before it can be completed. Additionally, if a user’s account has been locked after too many unsuccessful login attempts, they can securely initiate and approve their own account unlock using a2cMobile rather calling the help desk.

Offline Passcode

a2cMobile can generate an OTP that allows users to access your company portal from anywhere, and on any device. This feature also allows Multi-Factor Authentication to be used when a user’s mobile phone has no network coverage, such as on an airplane. With a2cMobile, you can be confident that only authorized access to your systems and applications occurs no matter where that access originates from.
