, (PressExposure) May 23, 2008 -- MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2-factor authentication, web application security and >SSL VPN Authentication solutions today announced the availability of SecureAuth for Cisco IPSec VPN, providing a true bilateral authentication with support for secure migration from Cisco IPSec to Cisco SSL VPN remote access. SecureAuthâs unique technology generates certificates for the client without the enterprise having to deploy any certificate infrastructure.
SecureAuth, a Cisco certified security offering, works with Ciscoâs IPSec Client regardless of how the IPSec connection is terminated; by a Cisco router, firewall or a dedicated Cisco VPN appliance. This allows an efficient low cost method to deploy the strongest 2-factor authentication solution to every user on the network, including non-corporate owned clients. In addition to providing a much higher level of security than previously possible, SecureAuth will automatically provision the IPSec client for certificate authentication, making deployment easy on both the network administrator and the end-user.
âOne of the vexing issues facing enterprises today â is how to realize the administrative cost savings and increase user functionality of Ciscoâs ASA SSL VPN offering,â said Mark Lambiase, Director of Network products at MultiFactor. âEnterprises have been searching for a methodology to migrate from traditional IPSec VPNs to the nimbler and more-user friendly SSL VPN solutions. The SecureAuth authentication system provides a secure, deployable and user and enterprise friendly solution," concluded Lambiase.
SecureAuth is deployable for both Cisco SSL VPN Remote Access & IPSec VPN, âsoftware as a serviceâ (Saas) and web applications. For more information [http://www.multifa.com].
