OneLogin Protect to Minimize Workday Interruptions by Providing More Secure, Streamlined Multi-Factor Authentication Experience
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., August 1, 2017 - OneLogin, the identity management provider bringing speed and integrity to the modern enterprise, today announced the release of OneLogin Protect, a minimally-intrusive multi-factor authentication solution designed to increase security and productivity for OneLogin customers.
Companies today are quickly moving to multi-factor authentication to increase application security beyond single-factor authentication. This has caused a reduction in productivity, as users are required to authenticate themselves manually by entering in a one-time password code sent to their mobile device before they can gain access to company applications.
OneLogin Protect simplifies this process by displaying MFA Access Requests as a notification. Users can tap on the notification from their lock screen, which then prompts them to “Accept” or “Deny” the access request and verify through Touch ID. The entire process requires no more than 5-10 seconds, reducing the level of interruption to allow users to return to peak productivity sooner.
“There is nothing more annoying than having to stop what you are doing for an MFA access request. Like all users, we wanted to reduce these constant interruptions in our workday,” said David Meyer, vice president of product, OneLogin, “That’s why we set-out to build a more streamlined MFA experience. With OneLogin Protect, users can accept MFA requests with two taps on their phone or just one tap on their watch. It couldn’t be more simple.”
In addition to using a user’s mobile device, OneLogin can send access requests to a user’s Apple Watch or Android Wear that are paired with a phone running OneLogin Protect. This allows users to simply touch a notification on their watch to authenticate themselves. OneLogin Watch MFA is another way OneLogin is helping users return to productivity faster than ever before.
OneLogin Protect is now generally available for Android and iOS phones and watches.
