Users accessing any web based system, typically authenticate their access with usernames and passwords. This is something that they know and is referred to as 'single factor authentication'. Increasingly, these web systems are vulnerable to unauthorised access. To prevent this, a 'second layer' of protection called 'two factor authentication', is required.
Digi-Access™ Strong Authentication
Digi-Access™ Two Factor Authentication
Two factor authentication is something that you own/posses (e.g. a Digi-Access™ certificate) combined with something that you know (i.e. the username and password). And this is the preferred security option to strengthen user access.
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 the web access does not require any re-programming of your existing environment. It literally 'sits in front' of your current web-based system.
