New Single-Touch Two-Factor Authentication Makes Added Security Easier than Ever

Next story

SAN DIEGO—September 29, 2016 — Businesses are constantly balancing the need for good security with ease-of-use. ESET® has made both of these things possible with the latest version of its two-factor authentication (2FA) solutions for businesses – ESET Secure Authentication (ESA).

The new version of ESA comes with easy, single-touch push authentication with smart watches support and multiple other enhancements including updated setup and installer, security and performance tweaks.

To help the public better understand the importance of using 2FA, ESET has partnered with IDC on a webinar titled, “Solving the ‘password1‘ Problem: Why Businesses Need 2FA” taking place on October 13, 2016 at 1 p.m. ET. Participants will get an in-depth overview of the following:

  • Account credential theft: What can be done to prevent employees from falling into a trap.
  • How 2FA can reduce the risk of account hijacking, mitigate weak passwords and help satisfy compliance requirements.
  • The types of multifactor authentication solutions available on the market, and how it can contribute to creating a stronger security culture in the workplace.

Additionally, with the new PCI-DSS regulations surrounding multi-factor authentication requirements coming on October 31, users must get up to speed on this proactive technology.

National Cyber Security Alliance and the Department of Homeland Security have recognized the importance of 2FA, and recently launched the Two Steps Ahead campaign, which encourages users to secure their devices with 2FA.
