Authentication Service

Keep Criminals Outside Your Network with AuthPoint

Our unique multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution not only helps to reduce the likelihood of network disruptions and data breaches arising from lost or stolen credentials, but we deliver this important capability entirely from the Cloud for easy set-up and management. AuthPoint goes beyond traditional 2-factor authentication (2FA) by considering innovative ways to positively identify users, and our large ecosystem of 3rd party integrations means that you can use MFA to protect access to the network, VPNs, and Cloud applications. Even non-technical users find the AuthPoint mobile app easy and convenient to use!

Ultimately, WatchGuard AuthPoint is the right solution at the right time to make MFA a reality for the businesses who desperately need it to block attacks.

Effective MFA Protection with Mobile Device DNA

AuthPoint uses a push message, QR code, or one-time password (OTP) as an additional factor proving your identity; and our mobile device DNA matches the authorized user’s phone when granting access to systems and applications. Therefore, any attacker who clones a user’s device in an attempt to access a protected system would be blocked - since the device DNA would differ.

Easy-to-Use AuthPoint Mobile App

WatchGuard’s AuthPoint app allows users to authenticate right from their own phone! No need to carry key fobs or thumb drives; instead install and activate the AuthPoint app in seconds, and then use it to authenticate from a smartphone. It enables speedy push-based authentication as well as offline authentication using QR codes with the phone’s camera.

WatchGuard Partner Ecosystem

Strong Ecosystem

WatchGuard’s ecosystem includes dozens of 3rd party integrations with AuthPoint – allowing companies to require users to authenticate before accessing sensitive Cloud applications, VPNs and networks. AuthPoint supports the SAML standard, permitting users to log in once to access a full range of applications and services.

Management on the WatchGuard Cloud Platform

Companies with limited IT staff and security expertise benefit from MFA protection that’s easy to deploy and manage on the WatchGuard Cloud platform. You can access it from anywhere, and there is no need to install software, schedule upgrades or manage patches. Moreover, the platform easily accommodates a single global account view or many independent accounts.

Don't want to authenticate on your phone? No problem!

AuthPoint supports the use of 3rd party hardware tokens. While the majority of AuthPoint users enjoy the convenience of mobile authentication tokens, we recognize that there are many scenarios where hardware tokens are required or preferred. If your company is interested in purchasing hardware tokens for AuthPoint, you may purchase any OATH TOTP compliant token, or visit the FEITIAN online store to purchase the C200 token (H41 or H27).

“AuthPoint delivers on the promise of MFA by limiting the business risk associated with poor passwords without compromising on ease of use for employees and IT staff alike. Everything in a Cloud service – with no hardware to install and software to maintain…MFA is now considered core protection, and it comes from WatchGuard hassle-free.”
