Consumer-based devices are proliferating the corporate world, and cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications are easy to adopt. As a result, maintaining control of users' application access across internal datacenters and cloud platforms is challenging.
This often has a negative impact on employee productivity and experience, and creates additional troubleshooting and time expense for your IT department. The following identity and authentication solutions are centred on addressing these business challenges and protecting your company's information.
Protect your business applications with VIP two-factor authentication.
Enhance security for Office 365 while improving user convenience with multi-factor and risk-based authentication using Symantec VIP. Symantec Validation and ID Protection (VIP) Service is a user-friendly, cloud-based strong authentication service that enables enterprises to secure access to networks and applications without impacting productivity.
Select the right authentication approach to deliver protection for a variety of users and use cases. Choose from traditional one-time password (OTP) credentials, device ID and risk-based analysis to invisibly authenticate users exhibiting expected logon behaviour, or use biometrics for passwordless authentication - or a combination.
Hybrid identity management.
Microsoft hybrid identity solutions can enhance end-user productivity with self-service and Single Sign-On (SSO) experiences. Help users be more productive by providing them each a single identity to use no matter what they access, whether they are working in the office, working remotely, or connecting to a cloud-based SaaS app.
IT needs to balance user productivity with your company's need to protect and retain control of company information and access to applications and resources, across the corporate datacentre and into the cloud.
For authentication, Microsoft provides solutions for identity sync and federation to create a single identity for each user. Microsoft also provides the ability to enforce additional levels of user validation, including multi-factor authentication, and enables conditional access policies, such as device registration.
Advanced two-factor authentication.
Safeguard your company against costly data breaches with powerful two-factor authentication, using an employee's smartphone and a one-time password.
ESET Secure Authentication secures remote access to company network and data, in a hassle-free way. A powerful mobile-based solution, it relies on two-factor, one time password (2FA OTP). The OTPs it uses are randomly generated, so they can't be predicted or reused.
ESET Secure Authentication natively supports Outlook Web Access/App (OWA) for Microsoft Exchange. It supports critical endpoints - Exchange Control Panel, 2010 and the Exchange Administration Centre, 2013.
Use it with a broad range of VPN appliances and business tools, including Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Dynamics CRM.
