Celestix Product Release Brings New Simplicity to Two-Factor Authentication

FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 10, 2013 — Celestix Networks, a global provider of strong authentication and application access solutions today announced a feature release that will dramatically simplify two-factor authentication for business users.

“The two-factor authentication market has reached a stage where, as businesses, we are all aware that we need this level of security”, said Yong Thye Lin, CEO of Celestix. “The problem lies in the reluctance of users to introduce yet another step into their daily lives, and truly adopt the technology that is now required to adequately protect digital identities and corporate resources. HOTPin 3.7 seeks to eliminate this adoption barrier by focusing on the user experience.”

HOTPin 3.7 Tokenless Two-Factor Authentication concentrates on providing an authentication solution for every user through a flexible range of options that now includes a QR code scan functionality. This feature makes generating a secure, one-time password as easy as point-and-scan for users. HOTPin’s additional methods for password delivery include a smartphone app, SMS text message, Instant Messenger, and virtual keyboard.

IT professionals will also enjoy another major new feature in HOTPin 3.7 – an authentication API. This enables two-factor authentication to be easily implemented into existing web applications, and includes multiple interfaces along with client libraries, sample applications, and documentation.

Celestix HOTPin is just one component of the company’s award-winning range of Microsoft security and access appliances. Also recently announced was Celestix DAX, a dedicated platform for deployment of Microsoft DirectAccess that provides seamless remote access for users without the need for a VPN connection.
