Multi-factor authentication is a simple, streamlined security solution allowing remote access to business systems so employees and customers can conduct important business securely and safely
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) proactively reduces the risk of a data breach and X.COMM provides organisations with MFA solutions to protect their applications and data from unauthorised access.
Both cloud and on-premise architecture are at risk, making solutions that are intelligent and flexible enough to support a range of architectural requirements a must. As are a variety of authentication factors to ensure maximum adoption.
Safe and secure
There are several benefits to using a multi-factor authentication solution. Firstly, there is a significant decrease in the chance of end user identities (and, subsequently, their IT resources) becoming compromised. By adding a personal, time-sensitive factor to the authentication process, would-be hackers are thwarted, even if they have a user’s password. This has the added benefit of peace of mind for enterprises, knowing that their sensitive data is made safer by an additional security layer.
MFA also adds a sense of mindfulness to authentication – by taking the time to insert a one time passcode, users are reminded of the importance of tight identity security. MFA also enables businesses to achieve regulatory compliance
X.COMM works with a number of partners to provide a range of multi-factor authentication solutions. Partners include:
Swivel Secure – PINsafe® from Swivel Secure is the patented technology behind the image authentication factors PINpad®, PICpad, and TURing.
PINpad®, PICpad, and TURing are part of a range of authentication factors
available with AuthControl Sentry®, the multi-factor authentication solution designed to protect organisations from unauthorised access to their applications, networks and data.
RSA – The RSA SecurID Suite enables organisations of all sizes to mitigate identity risk and maintain compliance without impeding user productivity. It ensures users have appropriate access and confirms they are who they say they are with a modern, convenient user experience.
Ping Identity – The Ping Intelligent Identity™ platform provides a comprehensive suite of identity services that work in any cloud, hybrid and on-premise environment. From multi-factor authentication and single sign-on to data governance and intelligent API cybersecurity, Ping’s platform helps enterprises optimise both security and convenience simultaneously. Utilising the Ping Intelligent Identity™ platform X.COMM will help you build a centralised control point for security so your customers, employees and partners have secure access to resources from anywhere.
X.COMM’s security products
With a SSL VPN from X.COMM your work force can safely and securely access corporate resources from any location using any web-enabled device such as a laptop, smartphone, or tablet.
Clientless SSL VPN:
Clientless SSL VPN creates a remote-access, secure VPN tunnel to a secure appliance using a web browser without requiring a software or hardware client.
X.COMM’s IPSec VPN solutions enable you to safeguard all of your business processes, securing employee networks, encompassing an increasing number of endpoints and ensuring all cloud-based environments cannot be compromised .
Every business that has a network should have a firewall, regardless of the size of the company. X.COMM works with a number of partners to provide a range of next generation firewall (NGFW) options.
Encryption is one of the most common ways to protect sensitive data and X.COMM provides AES 256 data encryption and decryption software solutions to ensure that your data is secure and cannot be viewed by unauthorized users.
Any device, such as a desktop PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet, provides an entry point for cyberthreats. Endpoint security aims to secure every endpoint connecting to a network or in the cloud to block access attempts and other risky activity at these points of entry.
Multi-factor authentication protects platforms and users alike, reducing complexity while ensuring data is safe and secure
