SecureAuth IEP Achieves 5 Star Rating in SC Magazine's Multifactor Group Test for Outstanding Features, Ease of Use and PerformanceMagazine's Rating Parallels Customer Response to SecureAuth IEP's Simple, Scalable Multi-Factor Authentication Offering (January 12, 2012)
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/12/12 -- SecureAuth, the innovative leader in Identity Enforcement, today announced that it has received a prestigious five stars in SC Magazine's 2012 Multi-factor Authentication Group Test for Features, Ease of Use, and Performance. A five star rating is the maximum rating any category can receive in this rigorous lab review. After thorough testing and analysis, reviewer Peter Stephenson summarized the SecureAuth IEP appliance as, "feature rich and easy to manage with some very nice integration functionality all combining to be a reasonable value for the money."
SC Magazine's review validates that SecureAuth IEP "leverages its Versatile Authentication Service (VAS) to integrate single sign-on and identity management services for cloud-based, web-based, virtual private network (VPN), and mobile resources." According to the reviewers, "This product can easily add strong authentication to the enterprise using a combination of certificates; one-time passwords that can be delivered via SMS text, by phone, or by email; and personal identification numbers." The review continued, "We found it to be easy to navigate and provides seamless integration with applications."
The reviewers also verified the importance of SecureAuth's SAML Portal-in-Box, included at no charge, with the SecureAuth Identity Enforcement Platform. According to the reviewers, "from the user side, this product provides seamless integration with applications. After the administrator has set up a policy, a user can login to a web-based user page, which contains all the various accounts for that user. This page can include web application logins, such as web-based email and SharePoint accounts, as well as SaaS applications, such as online storage accounts. Users can employ this portal to manage their account and reset their password."
"SC Magazine's multi-factor authentication group test confirms that SecureAuth's approach to integrating Single Sign-on and native authentication provides the versatility that organizations and enterprises of all sizes can depend on for ease of use and security," stated Craig Lund, CEO and co-founder of SecureAuth Corporation. "With SecureAuth in place, compliance issues are addressed and the applications are protected because only authorized users can access them from their desk or remotely from Smartphones or tablets."
