The Ministry of Development and Technology decided to use Secfense User Access Security Broker (UASB) to protect the Ministry’s email system. It’s a project that underscores Secfense’s commitment to enhancing cyber security in the public sector.
Enhancing Security in the Ministry
Our efforts focused on implementing two-factor authentication (2FA) in the ministry’s email system. UASB has allowed the integration of various authentication methods, such as U2F/FIDO2, one-time passwords, and biometric devices. This solution provides flexibility and increases the level of security.
– A significant number of successful cyberattacks today begin with the acquisition of an attacked institution’s employee credentials into its internal systems. Very often, it is the login information for an email account. That’s why securing the authentication process is so important. Multi-component authentication requiring at least two independent verification steps that are difficult to forge is becoming the standard. They can use, for example, cryptographic keys, phones, or biometrics – says Tomasz Kowalski, co-founder and CEO of Secfense.
The essence of Multi-factor Authentication
With cyber threats on the rise, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is becoming the standard for protecting access to systems. At Secfense, we understand that this approach is key to ensuring data and systems security.
User Access Security Broker is designed to enable rapid implementation of strong authentication without the need to interfere with application code. At the Ministry of Development and Technology, we were able to implement MFA in a short period of time, which is an example of the effectiveness of our solution.
At Secfense, we are pleased to have been able to contribute to strengthening cybersecurity at an important public institution, and we are open to further cooperation with the public and private sectors on digital security.
