Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report revealed stolen or weak passwords were responsible for 81 percent of hackingrelated data breaches. While passwords are unlikely to disappear anytime soon, companies of all sizes must look beyond passwords to secure users’ access to business applications and systems. AdviseTech utilizes Two-factor authentication (2FA), which is at the very core of AuthAnvil. 2FA solves the password problem by requiring something users know (username + password) and something they have (a token or smartphone app). This combination makes users prove they are who they claim to be and is incredibly effective in protecting against brute-force, phishing, and social engineering attacks.
With the AuthAnvil Authenticator mobile app, your users’ iPhone or Android devices can address all of their 2FA needs for both work and personal accounts. Whether it be generating one-time passcodes (OTPs), or approving out-of-band push notifications with a single tap, the AuthAnvil Authenticator app is cost-effective and convenient – for users and admins alike.
When it comes to rolling out 2FA, AdviseTech AuthAnvil delivers seamless user provisioning and just-in-time rollouts. You can easily synchronize Active Directory to AuthAnvil and have it automatically set to provision your users. And with the AuthAnvil Universal Director integration, you can synchronize with your Active Directory infrastructure and leverage it in the cloud – allowing you to keep all users, groups, and computers in sync.
With AuthAnvil, you are in control. You determine the who, when, and where of authentication. AuthAnvil monitors and records all user login activities and the applications accessed. Our best-in-class authentication experience allows you to determine which authentication methods are optimal for users to prove their identity to best suit your needs and policies, such as pushnotifications,one-time passwords, or U2F devices.
