Two Factor Authentication

Greater Data Security

As enterprises work to secure data to meet the demands of regulatory compliance, two factor authentication has become a critical approach to managing enterprise security risk. Two factor authentication requires two different factors in order to authenticate a user. Factors may consist of:

  • Something you know - a password, for example.
  • Something you are - a physical characteristic such as a fingerprint, handprint, voice print or eye pattern.
  • Something you have - typically a token, ID card or pass card.

Deploying an authentication solution can be costly and complex, but the right infrastructure can simplify management and quickly ensure that you are getting return for your investment by enabling more productive users and eliminating security risk. For companies seeking a powerful but affordable solution for deploying two factor authentication, Imprivata offers OneSign® Authentication Management.

Imprivata OneSign Authentication Management is an appliance-based solution for managing authentication technology. The OneSign appliance reduces the cost and complexity of identity access management right out of the box - OneSign installs quickly and is easy to use, providing a single framework for managing a range of two factor authentication types. Purpose-built for flexible and rapid deployment, OneSign dramatically reduces implementation time and installation costs. With OneSign you can deploy a broad range of plug-and-play options so your users can quickly access the data they need to do their jobs more efficiently, such as:

  • One-Time-Password (OTP) tokens - including built-in management support for VASCO® DIGIPASS®
  • Smart cards
