Bratislava – ESET, a global leader in cybersecurity, has launched Version 3.0 of ESET Secure Authentication (ESA), a multifactor authentication solution that allows businesses of all sizes to secure mobile devices, prevent data breaches, and meet compliance requirements. This new version of the solution brings a range of updates, including the introduction of the Identity Connector and support for biometric authentication.
The Identity Connector gives customers the option to employ ESA to protect any service or application that uses a third-party identity provider, via the SAML authentication protocol integration. This significantly extends integration capabilities, now allowing customers to use ESA to protect access to a wide range of services and environments, such as email, VPN, Office 365 or Dropbox.
Version 3.0 also introduces support for native biometric authentication in ESA mobile apps, meaning users can now use integrated fingerprint scanners and facial recognition when approving authentication requests.
The new Notification Center gives users the option to configure their own notifications, so they can be proactively informed without the need to be logged in. The update also provides major performance improvements, bringing customers a robust solution to cover larger deployments.
Vladimír Maťovčík, senior product manager at ESET, states: “Business security solutions need to be reliable, be easy to use and cause minimal impact to a company’s processes. With an increasing need for organizations to protect a range of devices and environments, ESET Secure Authentication provides a simple, effective mobile-based solution that secures data and cloud access without affecting employee productivity.”
“The introduction of the Identity Connector increases the solution’s level of security, whilst the improved performance and addition of support of iOS and Android biometrics makes the experience even smoother for users.”
