Prevent Fraud Using Multi-Factor Authentication
Multi-factor authentication has become vital in ensuring secure access to systems and other valuable resources. It provides superior safety measures when attempting to access systems and financial applications, and is also an important requirement to comply with regulations such as PCI 8.3 and GDPR.
We generally recognize that advanced security elements such as firewalls and anti-virus software are necessary when securing a system, as are vulnerability tests. But the sobering reality is that if multi-factor authentication (MFA) is not in place, these other security measures can be bypassed. Password theft is also constantly evolving, as hackers employ methods like keylogging, phishing, and pharming. The ability to verify a user’s claimed identity through various authentication factors has become crucial for NonStop systems, especially for users that will be logging-on to business critical applications.
CSP Authenticator+™ supports both primary and secondary authentication for NonStop. It provides a RESTful interface which supports multi-factor authenticated logins on NonStop systems. CSP Authenticator+ agent resides on the NonStop Platform and uses an OSS “bridge” to connect to the RESTful interface of the CSP Authenticator+ web server.
CSP Authenticator+™ Dashboard
Primary authentication methods such as RADIUS, RSA Cloud, Active Directory, and Open LDAP are supported. User Rights Synchronization will make it easier than ever before to integrate a NonStop system into the Enterprise ID management platforms.
CSP Authenticator+ can provide authentication services via Safeguard Authentication SEEP, or Pathway and Non-Pathway servers. Almost any application, including TACL, can now easily support multi-factor authentication (MFA).
Secondary authentication methods supported include RSA Authentication Manager, OTP via Email & Text Message, Google Authenticator and RSA Cloud. You can now enable MFA logins for different applications, making them more secure!
