MFA significantly increases security and secures access to your data!
81 percent of all attacks benefit from
MFA using Push or QR code is a superior approach over one-time passwords (OTPs), which can be captured before the legitimate owner has the chance to use it. Also, approving or rejecting a push authentication message is quick and simple, without needing to recall and enter a numeric code.
WatchGuard’s AuthPoint app allows users to store additional authenticators, allowing greater functionality and value from the single app and creating an incentive to comply with authentication practices.
No need to carry keyfobs or thumb drives; instead use the device that’s always at hand…your smartphone. Download the AuthPoint app for free from Apple’s AppStore or Google Play and activate in seconds, and then use it to authenticate from wherever you are.
In situations where the user has no data connection from the phone, such as when on an airplane, then they can use the same AuthPoint mobile app to authenticate. Just read the QR code presented on the computer screen, and only the user with the right AuthPoint app can read it and access protected resources.
AuthPoint uses a mobile device DNA to match the authorized user’s phone when granting access to systems and applications. Therefore, any attacker who clones a user’s device in an attempt to access a protected system would be blocked – since the device DNA would differ.
To activate AuthPoint MFA, follow a 5-step sequence in WatchGuard Cloud and you are ready to configure users. No need to carry tokens; authenticate using a simple app on your phone.
AuthPoint can be fully managed in WatchGuard Cloud. The user interface allows you to view AuthPoint reports and alerts, configure services, and manage tokens all from one location.
AuthPoint uses a push message, QR code, or one-time password (OTP) as an additional factor proving your identity; and our mobile device DNA matches the authorized user’s phone when granting access to systems and applications. Therefore, any attacker who clones a user’s device in an attempt to access a protected system would be blocked - since the device DNA would differ.
AuthPoint’s time-based, one-time password (OTP) hardware token is a sealed electronic device designed to generate secure OTPs every 30 seconds that businesses can use as an alternative to the mobile token to authenticate into protected resources. Our hardware tokens are ready to use and can provide an additional source of protection for businesses when mobile device use is limited or restricted.
