Strong Two-Factor Authentication
The traditional user login method is to simply enter a fixed static password. This could pose
a grave risk when used in public areas such as Internet cafes, airports and other public
areas, because people nearby may be able to obtain the static password you use to log into
your company’s network. The BiGuard OTP allows you to create a strong, two-factor
authentication by using a dynamically generated 6-digit PIN, and combine this with your
existing static password. Even if the token is lost or stolen, it’s useless to anyone but its
owner and your company’s system administrator.
One-Time Password for Multiple Applications
Prior to launching authentication systems, administrators were required to synchronize each
BiGuard OTP token with an ASAS RADIUS-standard server which stored the ESN of each
token. The BiGuard OTP token is flexible enough to adopt various algorithms, including
OATH (Open AuTHentication) event-based algorithms. Whenever access to LAN, Web or
remote VPN is needed, users simply click on the token button to obtain a one-time
password called a dynamic PIN. This action will start the two-factor authentication process
between the BiGuard SSL VPN equipment and the ASAS server, resulting in the server
either accepting, rejecting or challenging the authentication request.
Easy Installation and Management
The ASAS server provides administrators with a friendly management interface, which
includes account management, adding new tokens, etc. The step-by-step server installation
is as easy as any normal commercial software. The administrator can use any web browser,
anywhere, any time, to login to the ASAS management server, without having to pre-install
any client software.
Ease of Use Anywhere at Any Time
Its simple interactive interface is easy to understand and use. A simple, single click on the
button of the BiGuard OTP token generates a six-digit OTP number. Pressing and holding
the button produces the token’s Electronic Serial Number (ESN), a number used to identify
each token. Bars in the lower right corner of the LCD screen display battery strength - 3
bars for a fully charged battery. Its car key-sized design makes it extremely portable.
Wherever you need to access the company’s network resources, the BiGuard OTP offers
you better security level of authentication process to login the networks, even when on the
road, or from an airport paid terminal.
Economic Authentication Solution
Unlike others solutions, BiGuard’s OTP solution includes an ASAS server, so there is no
need to renew the service, reconfigure user setting or renew tokens. The battery inside a
BiGuard OTP token will last up to 3 years, so no hassle of replacing batteries.
The BiGuard OTP: a truly economic authentication solution.
