Check Point DynamicID for Indian enterprises

By : |December 11, 2008 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Check Point Software Technologies Ltd today announced availability to Indian enterprises, a new authentication technology that leverages mobile devices to increase enterprises’ network security.

While other solutions require multiple processes, Check Point DynamicID is the first solution to send login credentials directly to an employee’s mobile phone or wireless device via text message. DynamicID simplifies remote access management for administrators as well as the end-user experience for mobile workers by eliminating the need for Smartcards and tokens.

Check Point DynamicID makes deploying and managing Short Message Service (SMS) distributed one-time passwords (OTP) as part of two-factor authentication simpler and more cost effective for enterprises. Rather than installing a separate, dedicated server to generate random passwords and then working with a mobile service to disseminate the SMS messages, DynamicID incorporates all of the functionality into one solution.

"’Easy to lose’ smart cards and tokens are history when you use DynamicID for secure two-factor authentication. Mobile workers will enjoy the convenience of receiving one time passwords on their preferred wireless communications device, such a mobile phone or PDA. By using randomly created passwords that are only valid for a select amount of time, businesses add an additional layer of security to their network," said Bhaskar Bakthavatsalu, Country Manager, India & SAARC. "Through DynamicID, customers conveniently receive their login credentials on their mobile phones without adding the overhead of a dedicated authentication server for Smartcards and tokens. IT departments will be relieved of the burdensome support calls and expense associated with purchasing, distributing, managing and replacing lost Smartcards and tokens."

DynamicID also provides businesses a much simpler way to comply with regulations, such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) security standards, that call for two-factor authentication. An OTP sent through DynamicID expires once used or after a preconfigured time set by the administrator. DynamicID is included with Check Point Connectra NGX R66 secure remote access gateways.
