Optimal protection for all applications - Multi-Factor Authentication

CreaLog's SDP7 platform offers users of the web interfaces multi-factor authentication in various forms, according to the individual requirements and preferences of the customers.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a security procedure in which a user provides two different components to identify him or herself. Usually, different types of factors are combined. For example, 'knowledge', i.e. the password, as well as 'possession', i.e. the user's own smartphone, to which a one-time security code is sent, which is generated solely for this transaction.

Multi-factor authentication thus offers significantly greater protection against unauthorized access. It is not enough for the attacker to know the combination of user name and password. He additionally needs access to a trusted device or app that is authorized to receive and use the one-time security code (one-time passcode/OTP).

The CreaLog platform SDP7 basically supports the well-known communication channels e-mail (useful for example in corporate networks) and SMS + OTP to the user's mobile number.

Additionally, widely used authenticator apps (e.g. from Google, Microsoft, LastPass, etc.) or cross-market solutions such as Mobile Connect can also be integrated.
This results in a wide range of options that can be applied depending on security and usability requirements.

In addition to these generally available communication channels, the CreaLog platform naturally also supports proprietary and company-specific authentication solutions that are integrated into the CreaLog framework on a customer-specific basis.
