provides true multi-factor authentication for SSL VPN systems without the use of X.509 or other certificates, plugins, or other software.
Avondale, AZ (PRWEB) February 7, 2011
Multi-factor authentication vendor Sestus announced today the release of its Virtual Token(TM) solution for SSL VPN environments. The Virtual Token(TM) product is unique in the VPN authentication market in that it provides “true multi-factor authentication” for SSL VPN systems without the use of X.509 or other certificates, plugins, or other software. As a result, the Virtual Token(TM) product is alone in its ability to provide true multi-factor authentication for all VPN users, regardless of their device, operating system, or browser configuration.
Virtual Tokens(TM) can be integrated with any SSL VPN that uses LDAP for its credential validation, and integration is unusually simple. No appliance or other hardware must be deployed, the product can be fully integrated within hours, and it resides entirely within the company’s existing web environment. Initially deployed for Cisco, Juniper, and Citrix VPN customers, the solution is compatible with any VPN environment that authenticates its user’s credentials against LDAP.
Virtual Tokens(TM) is a “true multi-factor authentication” solution as defined by federal regulators. It is compliant with all FFIEC, HIPPA, and PCI multi-factor authentication requirements. First introduced by Sestus in 2005, the Virtual Token(TM) product authenticates a user’s connected device (“something the user has”) using HMAC, PKI, and other government-approved standards, in a breakthrough patent-pending device-authentication process. Users are not required to install any software, plugins, or certificates. All internet-ready devices are supported, as are all operating systems and browsers. The product does not use emails or telephones for authentication, nor does it rely on weak browser “parameters”.
Virtual Tokens(TM) offer a layer of unparalleled security that is trusted worldwide. Since its release, Virtual Token(TM) equipped companies around the world have facilitated more than 200 million authentications.
Virtual Tokens(TM) work well for companies looking to add superior, compliant, user-friendly multi-factor authentication to their existing VPN or web portal.
