Strong Authentication

Home >> Products & Solutions >> IT Services >> Strong Authentication

WaTech Strong Authentication service provides a way to positively identify users with a two-part authentication process. The authentication process uses one item that users know – a PIN – and one item that users have – a token to provide a one-time password. This provides a much stronger and more reliable level of authentication than a password.

This service can be used to positively identify users who access a variety of agency applications or resources, such as:

  • Web applications
  • Wireless access points
  • Routers and switches
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)

The token generates a unique pattern of digits which change every minute to generate the one-time password Tokens are available to customers either as a physical hardware device that can be carried on a keychain or lanyard, or as a software application that can be installed on a supported mobile workstation or Smartphone.

The Strong Authentication service is billed monthly as a rated subscription service. Billing occurs only in the months when services are provided.
