ESET Announces the Newest Version of ESET Secure Authentication

Easy set-up, Expanded Integration Options (SDK) and Management Deliver Next Generation Two Factor Authentication (2FA) for SMBs and Enterprises

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ESET®, the global leader in proactive digital protection, today launched the newest version of ESET Secure Authentication. The updated, two-factor authentication (2FA) application continues to provide the potent combination of ultra-secure access to online applications, while introducing even greater ease of installation and support, for a superior overall user experience. The added integration flexibility provided by the Software Development Kit (SDK) and API extends protection to a wider range of applications and data, making ESET Secure Authentication one of the most unique and compelling 2FA solutions on the market.

Standard password authentication simply requires a user's password to access a given service or device. Two-factor authentication requires two elements: a user's password and a one-time-password (OTP), which is generated on a physical device. Should the user's password be compromised, a criminal will not gain access to their network without having the complementary device. 

The first version of ESET Secure Authentication was released in 2013 and proved that strong multi-factor protection is a critical component when protecting today's companies from potential damage brought on by a successful cyber-attack. This simple and highly efficient application makes use of remote end-users' mobile devices to deliver a one-time password (OTP) when they connect to company networks, providing added security to the network and the device. The associated loss or theft of sensitive data, subsequent brand erosion and revenue impact can cripple a business of any size. Adding secure validation to weak and static user passwords and unsecured remote access makes businesses of all sizes dramatically less of a potential target for cyber criminals.

"We're excited to offer our next generation ESET Secure Authentication solution for companies implementing a comprehensive security strategy. Businesses of all sizes will enjoy the same easy installation, simple set-up and minimal system footprint found in all ESET products," said Andrew Lee, CEO, ESET North America. "For ESA 2.0, we have significantly improved the overall user experience and support to offer a lightweight, mobile 2FA app that deploys across the most popular mobile operating systems."

With this new release, ESET provides ultra-secure access to business critical applications, such as Microsoft SharePoint Server® and Microsoft Dynamics®.  Furthermore, all communication between the client-side authentication servers and the ESET Secure Authentication provisioning server is encrypted using TLS (Transport Layer Security). ESET Secure Authentication also includes PIN protection to guard against fraud in the case of loss or theft.

The newest version of ESET Secure Authentication is currently available through sales, installation and support services with ESET channel partners in local markets across North America and the Caribbean.  To view a live demonstration of ESET Secure Authentication during the RSA® Conference, please visit ESET at booth #1926.
