GoldKey Launches “2-Factor Now” Program for Enhanced Security with Microsoft Active Directory

GoldKey Launches “2-Factor Now” Program for Enhanced Security with Microsoft Active Directory

GoldKey Security Corporation | 16 Feb 2013

GoldKey Security Corporation has announced its “2-Factor Now” Program. It is specifically designed for organizations wanting to add two-factor authentication to Microsoft Active Directory. This program offers a cost effective way to utilize GoldKey allowing a quick and convenient login to Active Directory across multiple computers, while at the same time creating a more robust security system. This all inclusive program provides the hardware, software, training and support needed to get the system up and running. It also gives you the advantage of using the knowledge and technical expertise of the GoldKey Team to insure a successful, hassle-free deployment.

One of the key components “2-Factor Now” is training via web conferencing. With the advancements in web conferencing, GoldKey is able to provide a “hands on” training experience for the customer. Best of all, the setup and configuration of the GoldKey tokens and Active Directory are able to be executed in the customer’s own environment on their hardware.

A major advantage of performing GoldKey training over the internet is the ability it gives organizations with training attendees across multiple locations to attend the same training without time and productivity loss, not to mention the costly travel arrangements.

The Gemini Observatory has recently deployed Two-Factor Authentication with GoldKey and through web conferencing was able to simultaneously train people at multiple locations in both hemispheres. After finishing the GoldKey Training via web conference, Jerry Brower, Windows System Administrator for Gemini Observatory, said, “It was awesome and very professional. I wish every company provided this type of training.”

Over the last 12 years Microsoft Active Directory has become the standard method for organizations to authenticate to the network. For example, 95% of fortune 1000 companies currently use Active Directory to authenticate users to the network. During this period, the same username and password security scheme has been used for authentication. With major increases of network security threats, the time to require two-factor authentication has arrived. Companies and users are at serious risk of attack while using only a user name and password to authenticate.

GoldKey “2-Factor Now” leverages the existing investments an organization already has in Microsoft Active Directory. These investments include the Active Directory hardware, software, support contracts, training etc. By adding GoldKey Security Tokens to the login process, the Active Directory system provides a more robust security solution.
