Secure remote access with two-factor authentication

2X Software : 13 January, 2009  (New Product)
2X Software builds Deepnet two-factor authentication technology into its Application Server product for secure remote access
2X Software has released its latest products, 2X Application Server 6.2 and 2X VirtualDesktopServer (Beta), with the integration of unified Two-Factor Authentication delivered by security expert Deepnet Security. This solution is ideal for enterprise users requiring secure remote access, while preventing unauthorised access to the corporate network.

Modern companies are enjoying the cost savings and productivity gains inherent in allowing employees to work from home, while users benefit from the convenience of telecommuting. In addition, executives, salespeople and others need to connect to the company network when on the road, and/or need to access network resources out of office hours. This means growing demand for remote access connections to the organization's network - with more potential security issues. To prevent these remote connections from creating a security nightmare on your network, 2X and Deepnet have joined forces to deliver a seamless and easy to use solution.

"Deepnet Unified Authentication delivers a rich set of two-factor authentication methods in a unified security platform. In the past, network administrators have had to source authentication systems separately, now it all works seamlessly within 2X Software," said Nikolaos Makris, CEO of 2X Software Ltd. "It is an ideal strong authentication technology for 2X products, providing extra peace of mind for enterprises, particularly where companies require high security remote access and for environments with high demands on security like banks or hospitals."

Yurong Lin, CEO of Deepnet Security, comments: "The native integration of Deepnet Unified Authentication into the 2X solutions strikes the perfect balance between usability, security and TCO. 2X application users will now be able to benefit from the cost-effective, strong two-factor authentication that is natively and fully integrated into the 2X solutions."

To improve security over a single password, two-factor authentication means any authentication mechanism where more than one thing is required to authenticate a user. The two components of two-factor authentication are: 'Something you know' (eg a password) and 'Something you have' (eg an electronic token card). Deepnet Unified Authentication is a single integrated security platform for provisioning, managing and verifying all types of user and host authentication methods, form-factors and user credentials, including:

* Hardware Tokens: OATH-compliant, RSA SecurID, Vasco DigiPass
* Software, Mobile Phone & SMS Tokens
* USB Flash Drive Tokens
* Virtual Smart Card

2X is offering a free 3 connection license of 2X ApplicationServer 6.2 for Windows Terminal Services. Organisations can install applications onto one central server and use 2X ApplicationServer to seamlessly tunnel up to 3 connections per server onto remote desktops.
