ArrayShield, a provider of innovative pattern-based two factor authentication solutions, recently integrated its platform with Microsoft (News - Alert) Windows Active Directory Federation Services. This seamless integration will provide users of cloud applications such as Office 365, Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Azure with more secure, two factor authentication for a range of corporate networks and cloud services.
In a statement, Rakesh Thatha, CTO of ArrayShield said, "We are seeing that lot of enterprises have started adopting Office 365 to make it easy to communicate, create, and share in the cloud. At the same time they are also concerned that the data in the cloud can be compromised if intruders get the keys to the main door i.e passwords. We're excited to be able to make ArrayShield 2FA available to enterprises who want simple, secure access to Office 365. This is designed in a way that company of any size can easily implement stronger access security."
This year, many companies like Yahoo, LinkedIn (News - Alert), eHarmony and Dropbox leaked millions of passwords. Since many people use the same password in different applications, just one stolen password allows an intruder to access critical information stored in various cloud services that may be used for work, which is a huge risk for almost all companies.
Luckily, ArrayShield IDAS for Office 365 is a great solution for enterprises as it powers extremely strong authentication and identity assurance functionality, as well as simplifies the user experience. It also removes the need to remember passwords and allows users to login to securely access all their e-mail and business documents stored in the cloud from virtually any device at any time.
