LONDON, 7 June 2016 – INFOSECURITY EUROPE – Bomgar, a leader in secure access solutions, today announced Bomgar Verify, a flexible, efficient two factor authentication solution that improves privileged access security. The tokenless solution allows privileged users to leverage their existing personal devices to authenticate to critical systems. With quick deployment and flexible device options, Bomgar Verify helps organizations to dramatically improve security with minimal effort and investment.
Bomgar Verify is easy for security professionals and administrators to deploy and manage, and simple for privileged employees to use. Any device can be used for authentication – mobile phones, smartphones, tablets, computers, or desktop phones – through email, voice call, text message, push notification, or with an app. Two factor authentication products enable a second security check beyond user name and password, by utilizing something the user knows (password) together with something the user has (device). By leveraging the user’s device of choice as the authenticator, Bomgar Verify delivers two factor authentication at a fraction of the cost and effort of traditional hardware tokens, and provides more flexibility than other soft token products. This allows organizations to quickly mitigate the growing risk of cyberattacks that leverage stolen privileged credentials.
When used in conjunction with Bomgar Privileged Access and Bomgar Vault, Bomgar Verify provides a true ‘defense in depth’ privileged access management solution that significantly reduces the threat of a data breach. Users are empowered to manage their own devices for authentication, which not only increases user satisfaction and adoption, but greatly reduces the administrative burden. In addition, Bomgar Verify can be used with Bomgar Remote Support to increase support and service desk security with enhanced authentication for vendors, support technicians, and administrators accessing remote systems.
“The majority of cyberattacks we see today include the compromise of one or more privileged accounts,” said Sam Elliott, director of security product management, Bomgar. “This is because companies are struggling to implement security practices that protect their most critical systems, while giving approved administrators and vendors the efficient access they need to manage and maintain those systems. By making it easy and cost-effective to enforce two-factor authentication for all privileged access, Bomgar Verify nearly eliminates the chance of privileged credentials being compromised, greatly reducing the threat of an attack.”
This week, Bomgar will be exhibiting and showcasing its secure access solutions at stand No. C160 at the InfoSecurity Europe 2016 in London. Bomgar is partnering with SecurEnvoy to deliver Bomgar Verify technology for two-factor authentication. For more information, please visit: www.bomgar.com/verify.
