AppGate and Signify team up on cloud-based two-factor authentication

The development follows a partnership between the two firms that integrates AppGate's unified access security technology with Signify's two-factor authentication hosted services.

Using the integrated security offering, clients can use RSA SecurID token-based authentication or opt for a range of tokenless technologies, including software tokens and one-time passcodes delivered using mobile phones.

Nikolas Georgii, AppGate's marketing director, said that, by working together, the two firms can meet the demand for secure anytime, anywhere access to corporate resources,

"The initiative also helps organisations to comply with industry policies and guidelines that increasingly specify two-factor authentication for controlled remote access", he said.

Over at Signify, meanwhile, Dave Abraham, the firm's CEO, said that the cloud-based, two-factor authentication service means that any AppGate customer - from small businesses to major multinational organisations - can rapidly deploy reliable and flexible token or tokenless two-factor authentication to meet business objectives as well as individual user requirements.

"We have already been working with AppGate on a number of successful deployments and look forward to rolling out two-factor authentication services to support both existing and new customers", he said.
