Nerdio Partners with Censornet
The company boosts its leading ITaaS platform with Censornet’s advanced multi-factor authentication technology to offer customers easy-to-use, easy-to-implement, and more cost-effective user authentication.
SAN FRANCISCO [RSA] — February 13, 2017 — Adar, Inc., creator of industry-leading IT-as-a-Service platform Nerdio, today announced its partnership with Censornet, the complete cloud security company, to put ITaaS users at ease with enhanced user authentication. Nerdio will be upgrading its existing user authentication system with Censornet’s Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Solution and Password Reset Module.
“Our previous two-factor user authentication solution provided adequate security, but it was more expensive and less flexible, requiring users to download an additional app that often had issues. Our engineering team had to spend a lot of extra time and energy to ensure our clients were comfortable with the product,” states Carl Long, Senior Sales Engineer at Nerdio. “Our customers are now truly impressed by the ease-of-use and are especially excited about their highly secure authentication.”
Censornet’s award-winning, cloud security solutions provide enterprise-class security to more than 4,000 customers around the globe. The MFA solution delivers a one-time passcode to the user’s mobile phone via encrypted push notification, with delivery methods including SMS, voice call, email and token. The Password Reset Module allows employees to securely reset their own passwords, which saves IT countless hours and considerable energy with password assistance and support time. Both solutions have been incorporated into Nerdio’s VDI-powered ITaaS platform, which delivers a comprehensive, seamlessly integrated IT environment, complete with unlimited virtual servers, virtual desktops, the complete Microsoft suite, security, disaster recovery and more.
“We’re committed to incorporating the latest advancements in cloud security technology so our customers can experience greater freedom and flexibility,” states John Mario, SVP of Operations at Nerdio. “Censornet was our go-to choice for a truly integrated cloud security solution. It adds a level of trust to the login process by using multiple factors to validate the identity of the user at the point of login. MFA is adaptive, real-time, challenge-based and session-specific, and takes advantage of contextual information when validating the user, thereby protecting against identity theft and modern Internet threats.”
“The growing use of cloud services and applications has changed the way we work, but this trend has also created a new attack vector for cybercrime. Hacking has become one of the fastest growing crime methods and weak or stolen credentials are still the major source of network breaches”, added Russell Zientek, VP Americas, Censornet. “By integrating Censornet Multi-Factor Authentication into Nerdio’s ITaaS platform customers can verify the identity and location of their employees as they access company systems or networks. We’re delighted to be partnering with Nerdio to help their customers improve their control and visibility over data that employees can view.”
“Security is of the utmost importance to us, and Nerdio’s approach to securing its platform puts us at ease,” said Ted Uzelac, Assistant Police Chief of the City of Portage, Indiana. “It’s definitely reassuring to know the company is constantly striving to improve and refine its product, and proactively create solutions to meet our needs.”
