2FA made easy

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is as simple as a push notification to your phone. Answer with a single tap – no need to retype one-time passwords.

Works on iOS and Android devices, and for all platforms and services including Virtual Private Networks (VPN), Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), Outlook Web Access (OWA), VMware Horizon View and Radius-based services.

Comprehensive coverage

Designed for the modern workforce, ESET Secure Authentication can be added to any existing platform or application. Simply install the program on your server – no specialist training or hardware required.

In addition to on-premise applications, ESET Secure Authentication also supports web/cloud services such as Office 365, Google Apps, Dropbox and many others, via ADFS 3.0 or SAML protocol integration.

Multiple ways to authenticate

ESET Secure Authentication supports mobile applications, push notifications, hardware tokens, FIDO security keys, as well as custom methods.

Users can enable 2FA using the method that best fits their needs and workflow, creating a streamlined login process without any complicated setups or disruptions.

Use cases

PROBLEM

Users often utilize the same passwords across multiple applications and web services putting a business at risk.

SOLUTION

  • Restrict access to company resources by leveraging multi-factor authentication.
  • Installing multi-factor authentication reduces the worry associated with shared or stolen passwords by requiring an additional piece of authentication.

Single server install, ease of setup, integration with Active Directory and one of the major pluses, an application we could give our staff members so there was no need for constant SMSs. On top of this, the fact it works seamlessly with open VPN made us very happy as we didn’t have to change our VPN setup to accommodate the software.

The ESET difference

Remote management

ESET Secure Authentication uses its own streamlined management console accessible via a web browser. You can opt in for integration with Active Directory, but also deploy the solution in non-AD environments. Once installed, no additional training or professional services are required to set up and deploy ESET Secure Authentication.

10 minute setup

The aim was to create an application that a small business with no IT staff at all could set up and configure. Whether a business has 5 users or thousands of users, ESET Secure Authentication, due to its ability to provision multiple users at the same time, keeps setup time to the absolute minimum.

No dedicated hardware required

All the costs of ESET Secure Authentication are built in so no dedicated hardware is necessary. Simply install the solution on a server and start provisioning.

Works with existing smartphones

There is no need for employees to use special tokens or devices. We also support hardware keys, but these are optional.

Full SDK and API included

For enterprises or companies that want to do even more with ESET Secure Authentication, we include a full-featured API, as well as SDK, that businesses can utilize to extend MFA to applications or platform they use - even without a dedicated plugin.

Push authentication

Lets you authenticate with a single tap, with no need to retype the one-time password. Works with iOS and Android phones.
