Login and SSO

Phishing attacks, key loggers, and even sticky notes are all risks to the weak security provided by passwords. The future of workforce authentication is passwordless. Rely on Entrust Datacard for a true passwordless single sign-on solution (SSO) that supports all devices, PCs and Macs, and cloud and on-premises apps.

Process Diagram

How It Works

1. Install a smart credential on an employee’s mobile device to create a secure digital workforce identity.

2. The worker unlocks the device with biometric authentication, such as fingerprint or facial recognition, to verify his or her identity.

3. Once the worker is authenticated, Bluetooth® connectivity to his or her Mac or PC computer delivers passwordless single sign-on to all apps – cloud-based and on-premises – while in close proximity.

4. When the worker walks away from their computer, he or she is logged out, or their workstation is locked, depending on the policy set by the worker’s organization.

High-Assurance Workforce Authentication

High-Assurance Workforce Authentication

Entrust Datacard’s passwordless solution creates a secure digital identity on the employee’s mobile phone using a PKI credential that is unlocked with biometric authentication, such as fingerprint or facial recognition. This ensures that the credential holder is, in fact, the credential owner, protecting workers’ digital identities and corporate assets. And, by replacing the password with a high-assurance passwordless solution, you are effectively blocking 80% of today’s attacks.*

Less Friction for More Productive Workers

Less Friction for More Productive Workers

Your workers aren’t limited by their location or hardware when they use our passwordless solution. Remote and mobile workers can do everything they do in the office – email signing, encryption, document signing, and more – from anywhere. Plus, our passwordless solution removes friction for all workers with true SSO access that works across all devices (not just PCs) and with all apps – cloud and on-prem. Our solution authenticates the worker and the device with one-time user registration, eliminating the time consuming and frustrating process of re-registering credentials device-by-device and app-by-app.

Reduced Total Cost of Ownership

Reduced Total Cost of Ownership

Our passwordless authentication solution doesn’t require costly hardware or operating system upgrades – it works with the environment you have. You will also save on the costs and hassles of password administration, resets, and technical support.

No Strings or Clouds Attached

No Strings or Clouds Attached

We don’t offer one-size-fits-all authentication solutions. Be wary of big cloud vendors pushing passwordless solutions that tie you and your data to their cloud environment. As well, with Entrust Datacard, you decide if you want a cloud-based or on-prem solution for high-assurance credential-based passwordless authentication.
