Secfense presentation for Google specialists

Fifteen new companies that make a significant contribution – not only in their regions but also globally – to protect the security of applications, systems, and Internet security in general. And Secfense, among them, with our User Access Security Broker, a technology that facilitates the adoption of multi-factor authentication (MFA) in large organizations.

As a company recognized by Google, we have all taken part in two meetings so far, the first one took place in Brussels, which opened the Google for Startups Growth Academy program, and then a few weeks later, the second meeting in Madrid, combined with workshops and business meetings.

Many contacts and conversations with mentors and other interesting cyber startups from other parts of Europe, which, together with Secfense, qualified for the program. Our User Access Security Broker was recognized as an interesting alternative to the traditional model of implementing MFA in organizations. We also discussed the FIDO2 standard, an open standard for online authentication designed by FIDO Alliance, one of the few MFA methods that effectively protect against phishing. Thanks to the Secfense broker, we showed how the FIDO standard and all other MFA methods could be easily implemented in any company without integration costs.

The emotions were big. We were able to show cybersecurity practitioners from Google our approach to implementing and scaling MFA in the organization. Google was the first company to secure more than 80,000 of its employees with U2F security keys in 2017, and this action played a significant role in the development of the Secfense vision that was forming at the time.

We got the impression that our technology was received positively, and it was noticed that Secfense broker finally facilitates something that was previously difficult or impossible – integration of security with complex environments. The introduction of strong authentication in the company without the need to hire new people, without many months of tinkering with the code, and with the possibility of simple scalability. Everyone agreed that UASB is a technology that has a chance to play an important role in the context of current challenges in the security space.

In Madrid, we spoke, listened, discussed, and took new advice from Google experts. Another meetup is ahead of us in June. Watch our social profiles to stay up to date!

We are faced with new challenges every day. We must always be one step ahead of the attackers and know what they are going to do before they do it. We are convinced that the User Access Security Broker will bring security to a new level, both for those working at the office and from home. For us, working with Secfense is an opportunity to exchange experience with developers who put great value on out-of-the-box thinking.

As part of the pre-implementation analysis, we verified that users utilize a wide range of client platforms: desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and traditional mobile phones. Each of these devices differs in technological advancement, features, and level of security. Because of this, and also due to the recommendation of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (UKNF), we decided to introduce additional protection in the form of multi-factor authentication mechanisms based on FIDO. As a result, users of our applications can log in safely, avoiding common cyber threats such as phishing, account takeover, and theft of their own and their clients’ data.

Before investing in Secfense, we had the opportunity to talk to its existing clients. Their reactions were unanimous: wow, it’s so easy to use. We were particularly impressed by the fact that implementing their solution does not require the involvement of IT developers. It gives Secfense a huge advantage over the competition, and at the same time opens the door to potential customers who so far were afraid of changes related to the implementation of multi-factor authentication solutions.

Even when the network and infrastructure are secured enough, social engineering and passwords can be used to gain control of the system by attackers. Multifactor authentication is the current trend. Secfense addresses this and allows you to build zero trust security and upgrade your current systems to passwordless applications within minutes, solving this problem right away,” said Eduard Kučera, Partner at Presto Ventures and cybersecurity expert – former Director in hugely successful Czech multinational cyber security firm Avast.

One of the biggest challenges the world is facing today is securing our identity online. That’s why we were so keen to have Secfense in our portfolio. They make it possible to introduce strong authentication in an automated way. Until now, organizations had to selectively protect applications because the deployment of new technology was very hard, or even impossible. With Secfense, the implementation of multi-factor authentication is no longer a problem, and all organizations can use the highest standards of authentication security.

Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.
