AuthPoint – WatchGuard Cloud’s MFA Service is Here!

Passwords are not as effective as they used to be, with employees simplifying or mishandling them and hackers demonstrating more ways to steal them. AuthPoint multi-factor authentication (MFA) makes password strength irrelevant, providing additional proof of identity when accessing applications and services such as:

  • Remote Access and VPN
  • Cloud Applications
  • Windows Login

How? The AuthPoint mobile app on your smartphone will show you who is trying to authenticate, what application, and from where, so you can easily approve or deny with a single tap on the screen.
Even when your phone is not connected, you can use the app with offline authentication methods, such as with a secure QR Code or one-time passwords (OTPs). Make the AuthPoint app your one stop for authentication by adding your personal social media tokens instead of installing multiple token apps.

Not only is AuthPoint easy for users, but network administrators will also appreciate that management is available from our new, beautiful WatchGuard Cloud platform. Simply login, activate your licenses, and you are ready to:

  • Quickly provision users by synchronizing with your Active Directory or LDAP base and sending them activation instructions
  • Configure any firewall for AuthPoint authentication, using RADIUS protocol
  • Add Web Single Sign-On (SSO) capabilities to your Cloud applications
  • Protect your Windows machines with push-message authentication, and offline authentication

With AuthPoint, companies can now enjoy a multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution that is simple, intuitive, and secure.
