Infosec Cloud partner, SecurEnvoy, the global leader of multi-device Tokenless® two-factor authentication (2FA), has today further increased the convenience of security with the launch of SecurAccess v8.1.
This latest version of SecurAccess extends availability of 2FA to over 10 billion ‘everyday’ devices – including wearable devices, such as smartwatches.
SecurAccess v8.1 offer a range of authentication options, including:
* NFC ‘tap and go’
* Biometric fingerprint login
* Smartphone apps
* Tablet apps,
* Laptop apps
* QR codes
Similar to ApplePay and SamsungPay, SecurEnvoy has patented the authentication equivalent of ‘tap and go’ using NFC technology, resulting in two factor authentication now being even quicker than passwords, both online and offline.
From logging into VPN, SSL, remote desktop, Wi-Fi and web, SecurAccess v8.1 allows users to move their identity between devices whilst prioritising security.
Two-factor authentication brings two of the following together providing a stronger level of security, should one of these methods become compromised:
* Something you know: Such as a password or PIN
* Something you are: Such as a fingerprint
* Something you own: Such as a mobile device or wearable device
SecurEnvoy’s 2FA technology is built upon a ‘zero knowledge’ foundation using split keys where the second part is the device’s unique characteristics. Only part of a key is ever stored on the device thus malware cannot copy a key that isn’t present and cannot call external API’s as none are available. No customer sensitive data or keys are ever stored by SecurEnvoy.
The solution can be implemented as an on premise software solution or hosted as part of a manged service or in the cloud. The solution is available to businesses at a fixed annual cost, flexible on a per user basis.
