Agiloft, Inc., a trusted provider of agile business software, announced that the Spring 2016 Release will integrate support for Google Authenticator. Rated as one of the top two-factor authentication methods available, Google Authenticator is being warmly received by Agiloft's Fortune 500, military, and governmental customer base.
Available on smart phones, PC's, smart watches, and other mobile devices, Google's offline-capable authenticator app makes two factor security convenient, and support is included for free with Agiloft's cloud service.
"We are delighted to announce our integration with Google Authenticator," said Colin Earl, CEO of Agiloft. "One of Agiloft's primary goals is to provide the best possible security for our customers. In order to do that, we are constantly adapting our product to meet new challenges and maintain the highest security standards possible. This integration is another step in that process."
Google Authenticator is an app created by Google to provide a second layer of security during system sign-on. When a user enters their system username and password, the app is notified and generates a temporary code. The system requires the user to enter that code in addition to the password before granting access. Using the app ensures that even if a user's password is stolen, the thief will not be able to enter the system without also having physical access to the second device.
Agiloft supports a variety of security options, on its all of which are available for the entire suite of award winning applications, including Service Desk Automation, Contract Management, and custom Workflow Automation. These include:
SMS Two-Factor Authentication
With new cyber security threats coming to light every day, state of the art security is not a convenience, but a requirement. Having access to leading features and the ability to precisely configure those features according to specific requirements is critical to data security. Agiloft supports these requirements and regularly engages third party auditors to test system security and advise on upcoming developments.
