Two-factor authentication solutions increase user security
For organizations seeking to improve security for users online, two-factor authentication has become an effective solution. In a two-factor approach to authentication, users are validated by presenting any two of the following types of information - something they know (such as a password or PIN), something they have (like a smartcard or token) or something they are (retina scan or fingerprint, for example).
Where the traditional username and password approach to user security leaves both the user and the organization open to easy attack, the two-factor system of authentication provides a much greater security shield against phishing and identify theft. There are many two-factor authentication solutions on the market today, but for thousands of organizations worldwide, Entrust delivers solutions that offer greater security at a lower cost than competitors.
Entrust IdentityGuard - a market-leading two-factor authentication solution
As a leading expert in layered security solutions for consumers, governments and enterprises, Entrust offers two products that provide two-factor authentication solutions.
Entrust IdentityGuard is a versatile authentication platform that offers a variety of authentication capabilities, including two-factor authentication. Entrust IdentityGuard is stronger and more cost-effective than its competitors - a critical factor in successful security solutions.
Indeed, through simplified deployment, reduced roll-out costs, ease-of-use and seamless integration with existing services, this Entrust solution provides significant cost-savings for the organization. Entrust IdentityGuard also provides authentication methods that are proven to be stronger than traditional username and password solutions, offering users greater confidence in using online services and promoting greater loyalty to the organization.
Not only does Entrust IdentityGuard protect leading applications like Microsoft Outlook Web Access, it also protects users from identity theft and phishing attacks.
Entrust USB tokens enable superior two-factor technology
Entrust USB Tokens offer a hardware approach to two-factor authentication. Developed in partnership with SafeNet, Entrust USB Tokens help provide greater security for desktops, VPNs, WLANs and Web portals. They are designed to securely store users' digital identities, including their digital certificates and keys. When users log in to an application, they are prompted to connect their token to the desktop via a USB port and then provide the PIN that matches the PIN on the token.
Entrust USB Tokens are:
- Secure. Tokens cannot be duplicated and PINs are encrypted to increase security.
- Extensible. By storing users' digital certificates, Entrust USB Tokens provide security capabilities beyond two-factor authentication.
- Reliable. Entrust tokens are durable with an average lifespan of 10 years.
- Cost-effective. Plug-and-play capabilities minimize helpdesk and training costs while Entrust's centralized policy administration reduces the cost of deployment and ongoing maintenance.
Entrust is also a leading provider of solutions for ePassport PKI (for authenticating travel documents), smart card PKI and other public key infrastructure solutions; SSL certificate, digital signatures, and other certificate management solutions; PCI security solutions; and more.
