Simple, Effective Authentication at Your Fingertips

AuthPoint implements multi-factor authentication (MFA) using the AuthPoint app. Any external login attempt creates a secure push notification to the user’s smartphone – showing who and from where someone is trying to authenticate. When this message is part of his/her own login process, they simply accept and quickly gain access to the authorized network resources and Cloud apps. When not, then the authorization attempt is rejected, causing criminals to be blocked from gaining access – even when they are using the correct credentials.

Convenient and Easy

No need to carry keyfobs or thumb drives; instead use the device that’s always at hand…your smartphone. Download the AuthPoint app for free from Apple’s AppStore or Google Play and activate in seconds, and then use it to authenticate from wherever you are.

The Power of Push

MFA using Push or QR code is a superior approach over one-time passwords (OTPs), which can be captured before the legitimate owner has the chance to use it. Also, approving or rejecting a push authentication message is quick and simple, without needing to recall and enter a numeric code.

Offline? No Problem!

In situations where the user has no data connection from the phone, such as when on an airplane, then they can use the same AuthPoint mobile app to authenticate. Just read the QR code presented on the computer screen, and only the user with the right AuthPoint app can read it and access protected resources.

Mobile Device DNA

Mobile device DNA provides an additional identifying factor to ensure that only authorized users can log in to systems and applications. Any attacker attempting to gain access using a cloned phone or app would be issued a non-functional one-time password. and so would not be allowed to continue.

Windows and MacOS Secure Login

Windows and macOS machines usually provide login with a simple username and password, which risks exposure of critical information if credentials are compromised. The Secure Login feature adds additional protection by having users authenticate through the AuthPoint app when logging on to their machines.
