Clavister, a leader in high-performance network security, is set to demonstrate Clavister MFA, a Multi Factor Authentication security solution, at IT-SA 2016 in Nuremberg, one of Germany’s biggest IT Security events.

Clavister MFA is designed to match all the key business requirements for strong authentication without adding administrative complexity. The MFA Solution combines:

Server:  the Clavister MFA Server keeps unauthorized individuals out of the corporate network. The Clavister MFA Server communicates with Clavister Next Generation Firewalls and User Directories, and tracks all the OTPs. Built into the Clavister MFA Server are several risk based authentication capabilities called ‘scenarios’.  These scenarios enable IT managers to assign the right level of authentication based on who the user is; the type of service required; the resources being accessed or even what IP address or network they are currently using. 

Authenticator: The Clavister Authenticator is a mobile app that works on Apple and Android phones. Once the employee starts the app, it generates a new One Time Password (OTP) every 30 seconds. Setting it up and preparing it to use is straightforward. The Clavister Authenticator is free to download from Apple App Store and Google Play, with no transactions costs.

SMS One Time Password Service:  The SMS service works on a bundle package:  a far lower-cost alternative to creating hard token-based implementation that is easier to use. The SMS-based OTP systems works on all devices, and requires no installation or significant configuration.  

Clavister will also be attending the show with partner PhenixID, a leading provider of solutions for identity and access management, which Clavister acquired in August this year. Phenix ID will be demonstrating its solutions, including Message Gateway and One Touch, showcasing how its products complement Clavister’s.    

"We have invested a lot of time and effort in the Clavister Multifactor Authentication and developed a powerful solution for authenticating end users," said Clavister CEO, Jim Carlsson. "Phenix ID’s solutions are a natural fit with our own offerings, from next-generation security gateways to embedded security solutions for smart devices, and the collaboration has enabled us to enhance Clavister MFA. We think that it is this is a strong partnership and I am looking forward to presenting it at IT-SA.”
