SecureAuth Launches 2-Factor as a Service to Deliver Enterprise and OEM-Level Authentication for All Devices

Device Fingerprinting and Authentication in the Cloud Deliver Convenience and Flexibility for IT Administrators and Users

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 12, 2013) - SecureAuth, a leading provider of corporate 2-Factor Access Control, today launched SecureAuth 2-Factor as a Service (2FaaS), a completely cloud-hosted authentication solution that offers flexible security without compromising the user experience or information. SecureAuth 2FaaS delivers flexible authentication options while maintaining user credentials on-premise. The patent-pending Device Fingerprinting mechanism avoids placing a thick client or an insecure cookie on users' devices making SecureAuth 2FaaS ideal for enterprise-wide, B2C, and OEM integration.

"SecureAuth 2-Factor as a Service is an intelligent authentication solution that has taken a heuristics-based fingerprint of the device and become transparent to the user to give them access to web, mobile, and cloud resources," said Garret Grajek, Chief Technology Officer at SecureAuth. "Two-factor authentication can be as easy or demanding as enterprise policies dictate, and can be required for all users or only specific users like customers or contractors. We developed SecureAuth 2FaaS to be flexible and convenient to meet the varying needs of enterprises who have BYOD and desktop users, and for OEMs that prefer our codeless capability."

SecureAuth 2FaaS Optimum User Experience
SecureAuth 2FaaS enables authentication via SMS, telephony, or PUSH notification OTPs, eliminating the need for hard tokens. It can be deployed for any corporate web application, including Microsoft OWA, SharePoint, and IBM WebSphere; and enterprise mobile application, including Android, Apple and iOS apps. By being compatible with any device, employees, partners, contractors, and customers can easily accesses sensitive data in a secure manner.

Flexible Administrator Console
SecureAuth 2FaaS is completely cloud-based, yet no user information or password credentials are ever stored with SecureAuth or in the cloud. IT administrators have confidence that their corporate identities remain on-premise and they retain user credentials. SecureAuth 2FaaS is self-provisioning, resulting in no help desk required for revoking or managing access to corporate resources.

A graphical user interface (GUI) console gives administrators a selection of authentication protocols through easy to use dropdown menus and wizard installations. This makes integration into their applications and deployment across the enterprise easy and fast.
