CensorNet Offers Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication Solution Through CenturyLink's Cloud Marketplace

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2016) - CensorNet, the complete cloud security company, today announced its certification under the CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace Provider Program. The integration of CensorNet's adaptive multi-factor authentication solution, following its recent acquisition of SMS PASSCODE, allows customers of the CenturyLink Cloud platform to improve enterprise security and productivity. As data and applications move to the cloud, the solution authenticates users through their mobile devices, helping IT managers address evolving business needs with cloud applications and mobile security by dynamically authenticating users based on geo-location and login behavior patterns.

"We are very pleased that CensorNet achieved certification for our multi-factor authentication solution under the CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace Provider Program," said Ed Macnair, CEO, CensorNet. "The growing use of cloud applications has changed the way we work, but this trend has also created a new attack vector for cybercrime and is putting CIOs under pressure to encourage productivity and protect sensitive data at the same time. Weak or stolen passwords are still the major source of network breaches, so CensorNet's authentication capability helps businesses verify the identity and location of employees as they access company systems or networks. Our authentication solution improves an enterprise's control and visibility over data that employees can view."

CensorNet's SMS PASSCODE multi-factor authentication solution provides CenturyLink Cloud customers with intelligent, flexible, and user-centric authentication software that gives organizations the power to balance strong enterprise security and high user convenience. It offers a superior user experience by taking full advantage of contextual information such as login behavior patterns, geographic location and type of login system being accessed. With this information available, the solution can assess the threat level and dynamically adjust the level of user authentication needed.

The CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace Provider Program allows participating technology companies, like CensorNet, to integrate with the CenturyLink Cloud platform. These additional business-ready solutions are available to CenturyLink's cloud, hosting, and network customers.
