Introducing WALLIX Authenticator:
Strong Authentication to Accelerate The Digital Transformation
- WALLIX Authenticator is a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solution that proves the identity of users accessing company infrastructure, applications, and data.
- The solution natively interfaces with the entire solutions suite: WALLIX Bastion (PAM), WALLIX Trustelem (IDaaS), and WALLIX BestSafe (EPM).
- WALLIX Authenticator: an agile and simple solution for a zero-trust risk management policy.
Paris, 17 June 2020 – WALLIX (Euronext ALLIX), a European cybersecurity vendor specializing in privileged access management (PAM) launches WALLIX Authenticator, its new multi-factor authentication solution. As cyber-attacks increase with the proliferation of remote access and remote working, the cyber risks associated with the digital transformation are exploding with the migration of IT systems to the Cloud, the development of connected objects, the massification of data and the resulting big data. These new uses multiply remote access which bring new vulnerabilities easily exploitable by cyber criminals.
WALLIX, expert in identity and access security, helps organizations govern and protect all access keys wherever they are – inside the company network, remote, or in the cloud – through access to infrastructure and privileged accounts with the WALLIX Bastion, access to workstations with WALLIX BestSafe, and access to business applications with WALLIX Trustelem. WALLIX Authenticator naturally enriches WALLIX’s range of solutions to provide an essential level of security with identity management of all users, and thus extend confidence to the entire perimeter of the organization.
Are you really who you claim to be?
With WALLIX Authenticator, upon connecting, the user is asked to provide several forms of identification, such as entering a code from a mobile phone or scanning a fingerprint in addition to username and password. The multiple authentication requirement is a quick and simple way to limit identity theft and ensure that business data is secure. With today’s concept of the extended enterprise, it is no longer possible to establish trust solely based on the networks and terminals used. The principle of Zero Trust must be applied to all access with systematic identity control of connected users.
“WALLIX Authenticator integrates seamlessly into our customers’ environments, regardless of applications or uses, while giving users an experience of fluidity and ease of use. Its complementary nature with our privileged account management solution and identity federation platform creates immediate added value in the market for our customers and partners. At a time when remote access and telecommuting are massively transforming the way we work, we have opted for the best agility/security compromise we could offer, both for large organizations and small businesses looking for an immediate return on investment,” said Jean-Noel De Galzain, CEO of WALLIX.
WALLIX Authenticator distributed and resold through an international network of partners
With the addition of WALLIX Authenticator to its portfolio, WALLIX is introducing a new cybersecurity value chain to its network of distributor and reseller partners. Partners benefit from WALLIX support to market and deploy strong authentication through existing WALLIX solutions or as a stand-alone product. WALLIX Authenticator is a CSPN-certified technology powered by InWebo, a historic partner of WALLIX’s alliance network, and from whom WALLIX able to leverage strong, high-level authentication expertise.
Xavier Lefaucheux, VP Global Channel, explains: “The dynamism of our network of partners and our ability to support them in the commercialization of new solutions is already bearing fruit: in just a matter of weeks, WALLIX Authenticator has been deployed in the telemedicine and public sectors.”
