Recently, Gartner Inc., a leading research and consulting company in the field of information technology, published its Magic Quadrant for User Authentication (Ant Allen, December 9, 2013). SecurEnvoy, an expert in tokenless two-factor authentication, was among 20 vendors included in the Magic Quadrant.

Authenticate your way

The end users experience is key, we have made the most simple yet secure method of an all-encompassing positive user experience.

The security specialist had already been placed in the Visionaries segment in the Magic Quadrant issued in March of this year. SecurEnvoy developed the SecurAccess solution specifically for user-identification involving remote access. This server-based software allows users to uniquely identify themselves without the need for an additional, dedicated token. Instead, a mobile device (mobile phone, smartphone, laptop, netbook etc.) is used as a second identification factor. This device receives the numerical passcode required for obtaining access, which the user then combines with personally known access details in order to successfully log in. Users can choose whether the relevant code is sent by text message or e-mail, or generated in a soft token app.

Landline and QR code options help increase visionary position SecurAccess can also provide access even if users have no mobile phone reception and no Internet connection. With "One Swipe", another SecurEnvoy patent pending technology, users enter their PIN into the soft token app, after which the smartphone creates a one-time QR code. This is then photographed using the webcam on a computer, smart device or laptop, thus enabling unambiguous user identification. Furthermore, users can receive their passcodes via a landline telephone call and enter them using the telephone keys.

"We believe we have moved even closer to the leaders in their quadrant with our continued product development, global footprint and positive end user experience. Both our sales and marketing strategies have been developed and now coming to fruition alongside our market leading solutions, highlighted by the newly developed Voice Call and One Swipe authentication options," comments Steve Watts, Sales and Marketing Director at SecurEnvoy. "Our technology is used in small and medium-sized enterprises as well as in enterprise corporations. The end users experience is key, we have made the most simple yet secure method of an all-encompassing positive user experience. We’ve significantly expanded our partner network and are now well represented in the U.S. and Asia-Pacific markets alongside continuing development in our traditional market. Together this has led to a continued growth annually of in excess of 40% year on year.”

Andy Kemshall, CTO at SecurEnvoy, adds: "Offering the easiest possible authentication for users is always a priority, in line with our ‘Authenticate your way’ motto. Development in our solution has enabled the end user to manage the life time of their token host device widest offering a wide range of innovative tokenless technologies. With scalability and resilience has also seen the growth in choice and that’s where we are seeing the greatest uptake. We have mastered the identity management issue in combination with giving choice ‘putting the user in control’.”
