ArrayShield has announced that the cloud applications can now be securely accessed with ArrayShield's IDAS 2FA. IDAS Pattern based Two Factor Authentication can be integrated with any Cloud/SaaS applications using SAML protocol.
ArrayShield Pattern Based Two Factor Authentication uses sequential pattern recognition and a translucent card to identify users. Users choose a memorable pattern as their secret and carry a unique translucent card that masks the grid displayed on the screen. Every time they log on, they are presented with a challenge Array of random characters, which will be displayed on their computer screen. They then overlap the Arraycard and enter those values that are present in their remembered pattern, creating a secure, one-time secret-code at every login. So even if hacker is able to crack the one-time-code as the same is not valid for the next transaction, the user's identity details are not compromised.
Pavan Thatha, CEO, ArrayShield, said, "We have come up with a practical solution to address the secure access of Cloud applications with ArrayShield's IDAS 2FA. It is easy and cost effective. Now, CIOs will get a peace of mind on the worry of Data loss and can leverage the cost-effective cloud services which were not considered before because of the security issues centred around cloud."
