Milton Security Integrates Two Factor Authentication With Their Cloud Authentication Security Appliance, Further Helping Education and Organizations to Secure Their Networks

Many organizations are looking for different ways to authenticate and track users on their network. Milton introduces two new features options with the addition of both a cloud-based two-factor authentication system, and a locally hosted two-factor authentication.

Any passwords or username, no matter how complex, can be cracked.  The benefit of a two-factor authentication is that even if someone has your login information, they still need that second piece of the puzzle.  This second piece is either something you have, like your mobile phone. DUO Security and WiKID Systems both offer two-factor authentication services, with individual twists.  DUO Security is a cloud-based service, which requires very little set up.  The ease of setup and configuration is painless.  DUO is free for less than 10 users.

WiKID Systems is locally hosted at your premises, keeping your data and control local.  The highly scalable, multi-tenant server is available as a software appliance or as Linux packages. It includes scripts to allow user-self registration in a secure manner, group functionality, RADIUS return attribute support, detailed logging and reporting.  It also allows greater functionality, such as mutual SSL authentication and multiple tokens per user.

"Data breaches are rising at a startling rate and two-factor authentication has become an absolute must if you're serious about information security," states Milton CEO, James McMurry, "and Milton Security Group is striving to give customers as much control as possible."

Since the CAS solution now integrates with both DUO Security, and WiKID Systems, organizations can choose to further lock down their cloud authenticated networks using either cloud based or locally hosted two-factor systems.

Cloud Authentication Security (CAS) was introduced last week, along with its first integration: Google Apps for Education (GAFE).  By using CAS, educational institutions can provide a single sign-on environment by integrating Google Apps For Education Authentication with either of the Adaptive Network Access Control appliances Milton Security manufactures (Edge7200 and ICEGuard).  Now with the integration of Two Factor Authentication into CAS, all organizations, including Education, can fully secure their network, by ensuring credentials and endpoints  are secure.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
