Legacy authentication systems add complexity and frustrate customers with unnecessary friction. Chosing the right multi-factor authentication method can reduce this friction and improve secure access.
Use multi-factor authentication methods together or individually for different systems or risk management scenarios.
The end user can verify transactions, logins and any other sensitive requests with a mere push of a button. Customers respond to activity simply by pressing ‘Accept’ or ‘Reject’ when prompted. The authentication response is then sent from the user’s mobile device to your company’s systems via an encrypted communication channel.
Mobile Device ID SDK
Using a proprietary algorithm, our mobile Software Development Kit (SDK) generates a fingerprint for mobile devices based on their hardware and software characteristics, such as the serial, phone and model numbers. This creates a unique device ID to identify mobile devices.
QR-code authentication integrated directly into a company’s native mobile app allows for quick user verification without having to memorize and enter a username and password. Using a mobile device’s camera, the encrypted QR code can be scanned anytime an end user wants to confirm or cancel a transaction.
Biometric Facial Recognition
Using the device’s camera, SelfID prompts users to perform gestures such as side-to-side movement in order to authenticate a transaction. This protects against fraudsters who may try to circumvent less sophisticated facial scanners with static photos of the end user.
Email and SMS OTPs
This offers out-of-band one-time passcodes (OTPs) through a variety of secure delivery methods, including email or a text message sent directly to the end user.
Authentication Features That Make a Difference
Use Appgate’s face authentication, or remotely trigger your customer’s phone biometrics, to improve customer experience and reduce risk. Combine biometrics with other protection layers like Transaction Monitoring and device malware detection to trigger additional authentication factors and reduce false positives.
Trusted Device ID
Dynamic browser fingerprinting accurately recognizes returning devices, regardless of configuration changes. This cookie-less device recognition technology minimizes collision rates and friction, maximizes security and reduces false positives while remaining transparent to end users.
Ease of Integration
Complement your current security solutions and quickly deploy with simple and strong authentication layered on top of your existing infrastructure. Installed directly into your environment, Appgate authentification merges with your web servers, VPNs, LDAP/AD directories and existing authentication.
Future-Ready Mobile SDK
Use our SDK to start protecting more customers for less and build value. The SDK’s native and user-friendly architecture hides all the complexity of the cryptographic operations.
Learn how each of the available factors apply secure authentication across your entire customer population, and complement one another to strengthen verification.
