Rochester Hills, MI (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
Authen2cate announces its partnership with Duo Security to provide Duo Security´s two-factor authentication service within authen2cate´s single sign-on and multifactor authentication offerings. Customers of authen2cate can enable Duo Security´s two-factor authentication service, providing an additional layer of security included with the service.
“Authen2cate made a strategic decision to enable our clients to have two-factor authentication as an always-on feature for them versus an additional line item to be added to our services,” said authen2cate CEO Steve Akers. “When assessing organizations that could help us achieve our goal, the easy choice for us was to use Duo Security because of their flexible feature set, focus on security and clean user interface.”
Duo Security’s two-factor authentication service brings strong, scalable security to organizations of any size. Duo’s unique, high-availability architecture provides centralized management, self-service enrollment, and interactive secondary login through an intuitive web interface, eliminating the high costs, complexity, and confusion associated with traditional two-factor systems.
“Today’s threat landscape has changed. More and more, attackers are targeting users rather than systems in order to gain access to those systems and password-only access protection just isn’t enough. Duo is proud to partner with authen2cate, who’s made two-factor authentication an integrated and integral part of their service,” said Dug Song, CEO of Duo Security.
Authen2cate is a secured cloud based identity management solution that provides single sign-on (SSO), multifactor authentication and identity management services for cloud, web, VPN and mobile resources.
Born from a team of network and managed security service specialists who saw a growing need for improved and efficient authentication within cloud and web applications, authen2cate offers a simple, secure and flexible solution that gives organizations control and consistency for authenticating and verifying individuals accessing their many resources.
