MultiFactor SecureAuth 4.9.5 To Help Enterprises Become PCI Compliant

MultiFactor, an innovator in two-factor authentication, Web application security and VPN authentication solutions, has announced the availability of SecureAuth 4.9.5 for VPN authentication, a secure access solution addressing specific PCI compliance requirements for large enterprises.

The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) requires execution of various disciplines representing security standards, requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures for maintaining consistent data security on a global basis. PCI DSS requirement 8 and 8.5 state that users with computer access should be granted unique IDs and be authenticated accordingly. SecureAuth executes beyond the mandates of both requirements and addresses the concerns surrounding enterprise authentication for remote access users.

In conjunction with major VPN platforms, including Cisco ASA and Juniper SSLVPNs, MultiFactor SecureAuth is able to deliver a secure credential, mapped directly to the individual user. SecureAuth utilises the enterprise’s already existing data store shared by the Juniper or Cisco network appliance; eliminating the need to create or replicate an additional data store.

"PCI DSS has specific requirements concerning remote access to controlled systems. The guidelines specifically make reference to the authentication mechanisms that SecureAuth utilises to protect the resources that require PCI compliance," says Craig Lund, CEO of MultiFactor. "In addition, MultiFactor SecureAuth complies with all the administrative and logging provisions that PCI requires."

SecureAuth, secure in administration, access, and logging; all of which are PCI DSS requirements, is ideal for financial and commercial enterprises looking to meet these guidelines with a secure, cost-effective solution. SecureAuth is advantageous to the enterprise, in that it is a self-contained solution, providing multi-factor user authentication, administration, and logging on the same appliance.
