ESET®, a global pioneer in proactive protection for 25 years, announces its new partnership with Cyberoam Technologies, a leading global provider of network security appliances.
The partnership will allow Cyberoam Technologies to integrate ESET’s Secure Authentication - a mobile solution relying on two-factor, one time passwords (2FA OTP) for remote access - into Cyberoam Technologies‘ Unified Threat Management and Next Generation Firewall appliances. This additional layer of protection will secure both end-users and enterprise networks.
“We were really impressed with ESET and happy to be partnering with them. ESET’s Secure Authentication application not only provides an extra layer of security to our customers as they access their company networks remotely, it’s also really easy to install and use,”
said, Ajay Nawani, Global Head Presales at Cyberoam Technologies. “The other great benefit is that it will be provided to VPN users via a pre-installed mobile application or via SMS, designed for users with mobile phones that cannot support apps.”
ESET Secure Authentication is designed to make remote access to the company network and sensitive data safe, and hassle-free. The mobile-based solution is designed for users accessing the company’s VPN and OWA (Outlook Web App) and other Microsoft systems like Dynamics and Sharepoint. Users can implement ESET Secure Authentication to its RADIUS-based services or use the API to integrate it with an existing authentication system based on Active Directory.
“90% of US-based companies having suffered a hacking or data breach last year , and with 76% of intrusions taking advantage of weak passwords, it’s no wonder that so many companies are looking for a smart solution to the problem,” said Ignacio Sbampato, chief marketing and sales officer at ESET. “ESET’s two-factor, one-time passwords are a great way for organisations of all sizes to harden their security posture by providing a secure connection to their sensitive data and networks. We are delighted to be partnering with Cyberoam Technologies and look forward to a bright future working together.”
In April this year, Cyberoam Technologies, a spin-off from Elitecore Technologies, was acquired by UK IT security company Sophos.
Many industries, such as health and finance, have a pressing need for stronger user authentication. Existing Cyberoam Technologies' customers can take advantage of this partnership with ESET to secure VPN communications to servers and web applications, as well as gain granular visibility into network and user activities with Cyberoam Technologies’s monitoring and logging capabilities.
