Multi-factor authentication, the requirement of users to identify themselves both through something they know (such as a username or email account credentials) and something they have (like a cell phone or key fob), is a security measure which has become increasingly adopted across multiple verticals. Along with governmental agencies and financial institutions, select Texas universities are implementing multi-factor authentication for an additional layer of access security.
ReACT, the self-service password reset and synchronization software tool from ASPG, provides organizations and their Help Desks with the ability to set multi-factor authentication in place. With versions that work on z/OS, Windows Active Directory, UNIX/Linux, Novell, and many other systems and applications, ReACT is a dominant password synchronization player for enterprise, educational institutions, and any other organizations that need to manage login credentials for a large base of users. ReACT also allows users to reset their own password without costly calls to a Help Desk – thereby enabling organizations and companies using ReACT to realize significant savings in their Help Desk operations costs.
By implementing a password reset and authentication solution such as ReACT, universities ensure those who should have access to campus systems can indeed access those systems while preventing those who should not have access from accessing the systems they should not. Through ReACT’s enforcement of multi-factor authentication, an organization’s system will have increased security by requiring individuals who are trying to reset a password to provide something only they have instead of only asking for things they know.
Interested parties may read more about the ReACT password reset software on the ASPG web site. Free trials of the software are also available.
