Two Factor Authentication

Two Factor Authentication

Entrust Datacard offers mobile-enabled, two-factor authentication solutions that provide your users with one trusted identity for all of their authentication needs.

Our solutions combine strong authentication with bold enablement. We utilize the convenience and ubiquity of mobile technology to allow you to authenticate trusted identities without compromising usability. Our two-pronged approach involves first securing a user’s mobile device, then leveraging it to improve security – an effective method to reduce business risk and improve the user experience.


Legacy Two-Factor Authentication

Mobile and cloud have transformed the way we do business. Security parameters are changing, applications are multiplying, and user expectations are increasing. As digital business evolves, legacy two-factor authentication – such as passwords, grid cards and hardware tokens – no longer provides adequate protection against unauthorized access. Today, a foundational element of your success relies on trusted identity.

Modern, Intelligent, Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a security method used to verify a user’s identity in order to provide secure access to networks, applications, cloud services and physical buildings. It provides stronger access security because it requires two methods (or factors) to confirm a user’s identity. Our modern approach focuses on secure mobile identities and behavioral biometric solutions to provide high identity assurance without compromising usability.

Adaptive Authentication – A Secure, Risk-Based Approach

Our solutions employ adaptive authentication methods to provide a secure, transparent user experience by enabling step-up authentication when a user has been identified and elevated as a potential risk. Our approach utilizes device reputation, transaction analytics and behavioral biometrics to anticipate and adapt to threats in real time, providing strong security without creating friction for your users.

Adaptive Authentication

Device Reputation

Device reputation recognizes and detects fraudulent behavior across all types of Internet devices – including desktop, mobile and tablets – and then employs additional step-up security measures when necessary. It can even detect risks prior to login, and it integrates with both websites and applications.
