MultiFactor Announces Breakthrough Technology in Secure Authentication

Irvine, CA (PressExposure) April 21, 2008 -- MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2-factor authentication, web application security and SSL VPN Authentication solutions today announced the availability of the newest version of SecureAuthâ„¢, a non-phishable, tokenless 2 factor authentication product. This release provides substantial benefit to organizations by enabling a simple touch screen graphical user interface (GUI) that effectively configures the expiration length of a certificate in both days and hours without the need for advanced certificate knowledge or access to certificate infrastructure.

MultiFactor recognizes the importance of simple yet effective secure authentication solutions, especially in large enterprises where network access is required for a myriad of users including onsite, remote, transient and non-corporate users. Traditionally, enterprises must establish certificate authentication infrastructure, namely complex certificate servers, reliant on specially trained cryptographic engineers. SecureAuth allows organizations to make these modifications simply and without the requirement of specially trained personnel. Network administrators are able to control the duration of certificates via a simple GUI – without the need to access a certificate server.

“SecureAuth's revolutionary new feature allows organizations to dynamically generate certificates with variable expiration terms depending on the security requirements of the specific application,” said MultiFactor COO, Garret Grajek. "This empowers the enterprise to adjust the validity of the authentication session to the value of the resource and the level of risk associated with the application," Grajek concluded.

The market application for this security flexibility is limitless. One immediate benefit of this application is the creation of short term certificates for VPN users. Enterprises have previously avoided using certificates for VPN authentication due to the vulnerability of leaving a certificate on a non-corporate asset.
