Multi Factor Authentication

Get In Touch


Trusted security solutions

As a WatchGuard Platinum Partner, we are able to offer their new multi-factor authentication technology, AuthPoint. Until now, multi-factor authentication (MFA) has been out of reach for many organisations due to the complex integrations and burdensome on-premises management. On the contrary, AuthPoint is a Cloud service, so there’s no expensive hardware to deploy, and you can engage with it from anywhere.

Why do I need multi factor authentication?

Multi factor authentication (MFA) extends beyond the traditional methods of two factor authentication (2FA) and consists of a three pronged approach, asking users to provide: something that they know, on something that they have in order to positively identify a specific person. We are pleased to offer WatchGuard’s AuthPoint service, which provides effective authentication on an easy-to-use Cloud platform.

Two key options

• One Time password (OTP). Generated in two places (to you as a user, and one Gemalto Servers) and gain access when they match. These are suitable for most organisations.

• Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). Identifies a user by linking a pair of public and private keys via the user’s identity credentials. The private key is used to authenticate, encrypt and digitally sign.

What are the benefits?

GDPR compliance. Don’t leave your security to chance. Get into the habit now of working with a robust, automated system

• Peace of mind. Passwords are only as strong as the people who create them. 2FA takes the element of chance out of your security by adding a crucial extra level of information

• Reduce the chance of hacking and fraud risks – make sure your business isn’t an easy target

• Ideal companion to cloud hosting, where your data *could* be accessed remotely
