Townsend Security Brings Two Factor Authentication to Leading IBM i Security Solutions
Date:7/23/2014

Olympia, WA (PRWEB) July 23, 2014

Townsend Security, a leading authority in data privacy solutions, today announced that their leading IBM i security solutions now support two factor authentication. This major update allows organizations to reduce the security weakness of relying on passwords as their only authentication mechanism.

Customers can now leverage Townsend Security’s mobile-based Alliance Two Factor Authentication software with the following Alliance solutions for the IBM i.

  • Alliance AES/400 – High performance, NIST validated AES encryption
  • Alliance FTP Manager – Secure managed file transfer solution with the only
commercial version of PGP on the IBM i
  • Alliance LogAgent – Collect system logs and transmit to any SIEM

Deploying a traditional authentication solution can be costly and complex. By using SMS text or voice validation, rather than a security token, businesses can easily enhance their security in a cost effective way. Townsend Security has partnered with TeleSign to deliver the SMS text and voice notifications to authorized users. TeleSign is trusted by the world’s largest companies and protects 2.5 billion accounts in more than 200 countries and in 90 languages.

“The strongest passwords are still weak. Compromised credentials can lead to catastrophic data breaches and cost companies millions of dollars,” said Patrick Townsend, CEO of Townsend Security. “The Target breach is a prime example of what can happen without two factor authentication in place.”

“Bringing two factor authentication into Townsend Security’s core IBM i security solutions is a direct reflection on the company’s dedication to providing customers with industry-leading technology,” continued Townsend.

Current Alliance AES/400, FTP Manager, and LogAgent customers can upgrade their software to take advantage of Alliance Two Factor Authentication by visiting http://www.townsendsecurity.com.
