Green Armor AUTHENTICATION SUITE
Multi-Factor and Site Authentication
Green Armor Authentication Suite: What It Is
The Green Armor Authentication Suite (formerly known as Identity Cues Two Factor) is a unique, user-friendly authentication system that both strongly authenticates users to an online system as well as informs users whether they are interacting with a legitimate web site or with a criminal’s clone site. As the most user-friendly multi-factor and site authentication system available today, Green Armor Authentication typically requires no user enrollment, no extra steps during the login process, no user training, and little ongoing maintenance, yet implements a time-tested multi-factor and site authentication combination that has proven successful in defending systems for over half a decade.
Green Armor can help your organization meet and exceed the newly amended Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) guidelines as well as meet HIPAA and other regulations, by providing both multi-factor and site (mutual) authentication – but without forcing you to inconvenience your users in order to achieve that improved level of protection.
Green Armor Authentication: How It Works
Green Armor's technology is delivered as software that easily integrates with existing web and mobile sites; it can even been licensed as an API which can be embedded as it it were the code of your actual application! Multi-factor authentication takes place behind the scenes, and obvious cues enable all users to instinctively recognize whether or not they are interacting with an intended legitimate party.
With Green Armor, patent-pending technology authenticates users as well as the devices that they use for access. Users type their login names & passwords as they always have -– with no added steps. If a user's credentials are correct, the system performs a heuristic analysis of the device he or she is using for access; In the vast majority of cases the system will quickly recognize the device as associated with that user and allow access, in cases in which the device is not recognized, or is recognized but its being so indicates a suspicious condition, then various security procedures will be implemented. Depending on risk level, for example, the system may send the user a one-time password via email or SMS which the user must enter into the web session for out of band authentication confirmation. Other options are available as well. It is important to realize that for most users authentication will take place invisibly, behind the scenes, on every login they perform.
Green Armor Authentication also generates visual cues by applying one-way cryptographic functions to a combination of user-entered text (e.g., the user's login name) and a series of secret keys. Based on the result of the calculations, cues are selected and displayed in user’s web browser. Only the genuine site can generate the proper cue for any particular user; because of the way the human perceives visual experiences, if no cue or an incorrect cue is displayed it will be obvious to even an untrained user that something is wrong with the site.
Since its inception, Green Armor technology has always delivered true multi-factor authentication whenever a user accesses a system. It has never relied on users answering questions (whose answers can often be obtained by criminals even easier than passwords can) in lieu of a true multi-factor sign on.
Green Armor Authentication: Business Benefits
The elegance and simplicity of Green Armor Authentication can provide significant benefits to many organizations transacting business online or allowing their employees remote access to sensitive resources. Among these benefits are:
Green Armor Authentication : Advantages Over Alternative Multi-Factor and Site Authentication Systems
Green Armor offers several significant advantages over alternative two-factor authentication systems:
The Mobile Authentication Module add-on for the Green Armor Authentication Suite adds mobile-device-optimization for multi-factor and site authentication to the Green Armor platform. Organizations wishing to provide users with access to their web sites from smartphones, tablets, and other mobil devices need not sacrifice on security -- armed with Green Armor, companies can achieve maximum security and maximum convenience when users access from either computers or from handheld devices.
