Tokenless Authentication using SMS Passwords

SecurEnvoy : 13 November, 2009  (New Product)
SecurAccess 5.3 from SecurEnvoy is a fast roll-out SMS based tokenless authentication solution ensuring secure access to network resources for remote users
Tokenless Authentication using SMS Passwords
SecurEnvoy has launched SecurAccess v.5.3. The enhanced SMS-based network access product ensures user roll-out is faster than ever, and helps IT managers secure corporate networks, whether they are based 'in the Cloud' or in the office.

SecurAccess users log in with a sms passcode sent to their mobile phone, rather than having to carry around a security token. This latest version, v.5.3, gives customers moving from tokens to tokenless systems the ability to choose the pace of their migration. Authentication requests from both SecureAccess and legacy systems are handled through the same interface. SecureAccess can also be deployed to 15,000 users in 50 minutes, compared to the six months it would take on average to deploy traditional authentication tokens.

As well as fast deployment, SecurAccess v.5.3 delivers 'intelligent routing', helping companies avoid expensive roaming charges when communicating internationally, as SMS requests are automatically routed either via a modem or the Internet.

'More companies than ever are virtualising their systems and storing data in the 'Cloud' - it's the future of business computing. Cloud Computing enables employees to access work from anywhere, but that in turn brings its own security risks,' said Andy Kemshall, co-founder at SecurEnvoy. 'There are just too many points of access for traditional authentication to control, and businesses need the additional layer of security provided by two-factor authentication.'

SecurAccess has one of the smallest technology footprints in the authentication market. Other new features in v.5.3 include authentication of Windows 2008R2 Terminal Services and multi-language support for user names. An extended login process offers support for syslog - the IT industry standard for forwarding security log information in an IP network.


'Deploying traditional token authenticators to an organisation of 15,000 users not only takes around six months, it also requires the services of a full-time administrator,' Kemshall added. 'Using SecurAccess v.5.3, 1,000 users can be deployed in five minutes. This enables employees to work as flexibly as possible, and employers to feel confident that the right people are accessing important company information.'
