Tata Communications has partnered with SafeNet to provide cloud-based multi-factor authentication as a managed service.
The cloud-based delivery model enables businesses to implement an additional security layer that verifies the legitimacy of a transaction and secures access to corporate networks.
Tata Communications’ cloud-based multi-factor authentication offers both hard and soft token authentication, creating a layered defense system, which makes it more difficult for unauthorized personnel to access a computer system or network.
Srinivasan CR, VP, Global Product Management, Data Centre Services, Tata Communications, said: “Our multi-factor authentication service gives customers easy access to a customizable cloud-based model, which is hosted in Tata Communications highly connected global data centers.”
Multi-factor authentication is delivered via tokens that generate a constantly changing key code that is used in addition to the usual static password. The token provides a supplementary layer of security as only authorized users are provided with these tokens. Based on the user preference, the tokens can be installed on computers or mobile devices. Tata Communications supports this process with a 24×7 helpdesk.
