MultiFactor announced the availability of SecureAuth 4.5 for Cisco VPN Authentication, a secure access solution addressing specific PCI compliance requirements for large enterprises.
The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) requires execution of various disciplines representing security standards, requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures for maintaining consistent data security on a global basis. PCI DSS requirement 8 and 8.5 state that users with computer access should be granted unique IDs and be authenticated accordingly. SecureAuth executes beyond the mandates of both requirements and addresses the concerns surrounding enterprise authentication for remote access users.
In conjunction with the Cisco ASA platform, MultiFactor SecureAuth is able to deliver a secure credential, mapped directly to the individual user. SecureAuth utilizes the enterprise’s already existing data store shared by the Cisco ASA platform; eliminating the need to create or replicate an additional data store.
