Many operators of Software-as-a-Service [SaaS] offer access to their service with usernames and passwords. This is something that the user knows and is referred to as 'single factor authentication'. Increasingly, these SaaS systems are experiencing unauthorised access issues, unauthorised password sharing and other vulnerabilities that affect both system performance and revenue.
Digi-Access™ Strong Authentication
Digi-Access™ Two Factor Authentication
Two factor authentication is the solution that combines something that the user owns (e.g. a Digi-Access™ certificate) with something that they know (i.e. the username and password). This protects revenue and increases security and, if the SaaS vendor joins the ARP Network, will even increase revenue.
As there are only three steps, a basic setup of Digi-Access™ should be possible in less than a few hours. The three simple steps are:
|1.||If required, change the location of the Login page|
|2.||Configure the server to use Digi-Access™ certificates for two factor authentication|
|2.5||Customise the IIS error pages (IIS Only)|
|3.||Invite users to get their Digi-Access™ Certificate and approve successful applicants|
Digi-Access™ is compatible with 27 different servers, so adding the second layer of security to your SaaS service does not require any re-programming of your existing environment. It literally 'sits in front' of your current SaaS system.
