Once again, CRN has recognized WatchGuard in its Mobile 100 list of the top mobile devices, security and device management, software and mobile app development platform vendors in the market today. That’s five years running! This year, CRN highlighted WatchGuard’s AuthPoint multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution as one of its 25 Coolest Mobile Device Management And Security Products!
The growth of mobile and remote work has accelerated dramatically this year – though not for reasons anyone could have expected coming into 2020. Due to the crisis ignited by the global COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been a massive increase in remote workers, putting mobility-focused products front-and-center for countless organizations. For solution providers working to ensure productive and secure remote work for their customers, identifying top solutions across software, hardware and security products is key.
With AuthPoint, WatchGuard and its channel partners are providing simplified, secure MFA for organizations that need it the most. The solution authenticates login attempts by generating push notifications to users’ smartphones, while its Mobile Device DNA capability prevents unauthorized access attempts from cloned phones or apps. Most MFA solutions today come with considerable upfront expenses, complex integration processes, and burdensome on-premises management requirements – making it virtually impossible to implement MFA technology without a large IT staff. By contrast, AuthPoint is the only cloud-based MFA solution specifically built for the midmarket and designed to eliminate common barriers that keep MFA out of reach for organizations lacking enterprise-level resources. For this reason, AuthPoint shines as a truly innovative and unique MFA solution.
