ProfitBricks Introduces 2-Factor Authentication for Improved Cloud Security and Maximum Efficiency in the Cloud

The App-Based System Ensures That Core Data and Information Remains Safe and Secure

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 2015) -   ProfitBricks, the provider of painless cloud infrastructure, today announced the launch of its 2-Factor Authentication platform for all users of ProfitBricks cloud infrastructure. This app-based second factor of authentication ensures that even the most sensitive cloud-based information will remain secure. 

Today, security is not just an option for managed service providers and IT administrators who oversee cloud-based projects; traditional passwords simply aren't enough. With ProfitBricks, users who want 2-Factor Authentication download an app to their smartphone which will generate 6-character security codes for each login. Combined with ProfitBricks' recently launched multi-user cloud access management features, 2-Factor Authentication enables granular IT governance policies to be applied to the cloud.

"This new integrated 2-Factor Authentication supports ProfitBricks' overall mission to allow our users the safety and comfort to design, configure and manage virtual data centers that run anything efficiently -- just like real hardware," said ProfitBricks CEO Achim Weiss.

ProfitBricks' 2-Factor Authentication is easily configured in the award-winning ProfitBricks Data Center Designer.
