WatchGuard’s multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution not only protects identities, and reduces network disruptions and data breaches arising from weak or stolen credentials, but it delivers this important capability entirely from the Cloud for easy set-up and management. AuthPoint’s unique mobile DNA technology goes beyond traditional 2-factor authentication (2FA) by incorporating innovative ways to identify and protect.
WatchGuard’s MFA provides the strongest approach to user identification – requiring them to supply the information they know, with the information provided on something they have, to positively identify a specific person. With a simple push notification, the AuthPoint mobile app makes each login attempt visible, allowing the user to accept or block access right from their smartphone.
Today’s security landscape shows that using stolen credentials to breach network resources is the #1 tactic that hackers use. In fact, 80% of data breaches involve stolen or weak passwords as the main vulnerability.* Multi-factor authentication is the single most important security enhancement you need to protect your business.
With our large ecosystem of more than 130 third-party integrations, this means that strong protection can be consistently deployed across the network, VPNs, Cloud applications – wherever it’s needed. Even non-technical users find the friendly AuthPoint mobile app easy and convenient to use. Ultimately, WatchGuard AuthPoint is the right solution at the right time to make MFA a reality for businesses who desperately need it to block attacks.
