Asseco SEE announces the newest addition to the two-factor authentication product family. ASEBA SxS PAAS module is a Pluggable Authentication and Authorization service which serves as an extension of the ASEBA SxS server to provide two-factor authentication services for Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI).
By using the ASEBA SxS PAAS module users can use their security authentication tokens (HW tokens, soft tokens, etc.) combined with static credentials to access remote desktops and applications in the Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure environment. Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) delivers desktops and applications to users on a variety of devices in such a way that applications and data stay in the datacenter so the risk of information loss from lost and stolen devices is reduced.
ASEBA SxS PAAS module enables organizations to establish a higher level of security when they are accessing virtual desktops and applications in Microsoft VDI. Besides verification of static domain credentials, a two-factor authentication step has been introduced where users need to enter an OTP (One-time password) generated by their authentication device in the RD Web Access login screen. This ensures a high level of security and protection of sensitive and important data for users that are accessing remote desktops and applications.
