User Access Security Broker from Secfense by default precedes the application and adds an additional layer of protection to the user authentication process. Secfense broker, however, can be configured to work differently. It is possible to place it one step earlier, inside the infrastructure, where it can protect not only the login process but also the entire application.
This way, User Access Security Broker from Secfense will be able to distinguish between trusted and untrusted networks. The trusted network is the company network that employees use to log in. The untrusted network is any other network from outside the company.
With the Full Site Protection feature on, users within the untrusted network cannot authenticate unless they have completed the initial activation of the second factor. The activation can only occur within the trusted network via User Access Security Broker from Secfense, which means the users need to visit the office.
The main purpose of Full Site Protection is to give security admins full control over the application security. With User Access Security Broker from Secfense, security admins can protect not only the login process but also the entire application.
Two-factor authentication increases the security of the authentication process, but applications may still contain inherent vulnerabilities. If that is the case, the breach can still take place, and data can be compromised, despite secure authentication.
With Secfense Full Site Protection in place, no one can gain access without pre-authenticating first. In this mode, User Access Security Broker will only accept people with the already registered second factor. People without the registered second factor will not even be able to access the login page.
This is especially useful for organizations that do not have an SSL VPN in place, as User Access Security Broker with Full Site Protection is an excellent alternative to VPN.
Full Site Protection is an extra measure against cyberthreats that any organization can take. All people who use the application with Full Site Protection must first visit the office and enable their second factor from within the trusted network. The decision which applications should be protected with Full Site Protection and which can be subject to a more lenient security policy is up to the security administrator. Full Site Protection can be switched on and off in the Secfense broker via the administrator dashboard and configured in the same place where two-factor authentication methods are chosen.

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.
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.

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.
