Businesses typically try to manage access by operating in a closed network environment to protect their sensitive data from cyber attacks.
However, this environment has become more vulnerable as more and more employees are forced to work remotely due to COVID-19.
Moreover, the requirement for employees to input bundles of information, such as IDs, passwords, OTPs and Tokens can prove problematic.
It can be inconvenient, less secure and increases operational costs for businesses. There is certainly room for improvement.
A secure and simple authentication process is compulsory when we access mission-critical data from
outside the office or collaborate with people located far away, such as branch offices, remote offices,
partners, clients, and telecommuting employees. swIDch provides enterprise customers with a more secure, efficient,
and simple way to authenticate users and devices.
- Provide unidirectional code generated by the client without communication with the server
- Generate a dynamic code that changes every time and is safe from hacking and leakage
- Block attacks in advance with one-time code that does not allow cloning and spoofing attacks
- Protect devices by issuing a unique code that never overlaps with other connected devices
OTAC for enterprise
With OTAC, users can generate dynamic one-time access codes from their own mobile devices. This works in an off-the-network environment.
As a result, enterprises can reduce network traffic and enable secure, reliable
access management as there is no surface for hackers to attack.
Furthermore, employees and their devices can be identified with the code alone. Therefore, employees no longer have to deal with certain IDs, passwords and tokens. Also, there is no need to force employees to change their password regularly because OTAC itself is a dynamic code that changes every time!
