ESET Secure Authentication Solution Adds Integration to Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 and VMware Horizon View

ESET®, the global leader in proactive digital protection with a record of 10 years consecutive VB100 awards for its award-winning ESET NOD32® technology, has updated its authentication IT security product and is taking advantage of native support of Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, VMware Horizon View, and many other VPNs, making ESET Secure Authentication more attractive for businesses using these VPN appliances wanting to protect their sensitive infrastructure and data. This mobile-based solution - a highly secure mobile two-factor one-time-password (2FA OTP) authentication system, ensures safer access to company network when end-users use their mobile phones to connect to company networks.


This simple and lightweight IT security solution provides yet another layer to the authentication process besides the regular username/password. ESET Secure Authentication works with iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7 and 8, Windows Mobile and J2ME-based phones. The solution even supports authentication based on SMS messages thus supporting older mobile phones unable to run the application. It is a client/server system where the server provisions the one-time-password and the client displays it so the user can use it for authentication in a supported system.


„Securing small and medium businesses’ assets and know-how, the updated version of ESET Secure Authentication comes with integrated Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 and VMware Horizon View. Easy to install and easy to deploy ESET Secure Authentication is a cross platform solution which doesn’t drain your resources and adds noticeable layer of protection to your intellectual property,”
says Marek Chorvat, Business Project Manager.


Designed to be very simple to install, easy to configure and convenient to manage, the solution by default integrates with the most broadly used services and protocols, now adding the widely used VMware Horizon View integration. Being on the market for several months protecting Outlook Web Access/App (and now also in Microsoft Exchange Server 2013) and RADIUS, ESET Secure Authentication is now easy to be integrated for authentication into various other VPN Appliances: Barracuda SSL, Check Point Software SSL, Cisco ASA (IPSec), Cisco ASA SSL, Citrix Access Gateway SSL, Citrix NetScaler SSL, F5 FirePass SSL, Fortinet FortiGate SSL, Juniper SSL, Palo Alto SSL, SonicWall SSL.


ESET Secure Authentication is another addition to ESET portfolio of solutions protecting company data in the age of mobile technologies, which is supported on Windows Server - 2003, 2003 R2, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012.
