Carrollton, Texas (PRWEB) August 03, 2016
Insurance Technologies Corporation (ITC), a provider of marketing, rating and management software and services, announced today it is adding a second layer of security to its comparative rating and sales system TurboRater with two-factor authentication, making it the first comparative rater to offer this extra security.
When agents who have enabled this enhanced security measure log in to TurboRater with their username and password, they will be prompted to enter an additional one-time code. Each user can decide to receive his or her verification code via text message, phone call or a third-party app like Google Authenticator, Duo or Authy.
“Our users enter critical data into TurboRater every day, so it’s important to us that we help them keep their information secure,” said Laird Rixford, president of ITC. “Two-factor authentication has become a standard in the technology industry for mitigating security breaches by hackers. Major online companies like Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google use two-factor authentication to lessen the impact of user identity theft. We will continue to prioritize security initiatives like two-factor authentication to better protect our products and the information it stores for our agents.”
Agency administrators can configure the two-factor authentication settings by user. The administrator can also configure whether to remember the authentication on the computer after first login or to force the authentication every time.
