Blog » Teamwire Releases 2-Factor Authentication for Advanced Administration Security
Teamwire today released a 2-factor authentication mechanism for its administrator portal for maximum access security. The app-based second factor for the authentication of IT administrators ensures that all sensitive and confidential enterprise data in the administrator portal remains secure and fully protected.
Nowadays, IT security is a number one priority for businesses, and traditional passwords simply aren't enough. With Teamwire, IT administrators who want 2-factor security download an authenticator app (e.g. like Sophos Authenticator, LastPass Authenticator, Google Authenticator) to their smartphone. The authenticator app generates a 6-character security code for each login, that is one the one hand limited in time (30 seconds validity) and on the other hand required in addition to user name and password.
The new 2-factor authentication for the administrator portal is available for all cloud, private cloud and on-premise deployments of Teamwire. IT administrators can easily configure the 2-factor authentication in the administrator portal: Please click on your name on the right and go to "Profile". Then click on the third tab "Two-factor Authentication" and proceed with the required steps.
The 2-factor authentication supports our mission to provide enterprise messaging with leading usability and maximum security for businesses. The new security feature provides fast, easy and reliable access, and ensures maximum protection of user data, corporate content, organizational policies and infrastructure access of your enterprise.
