Public institutions own infrastructure that is often based on legacy applications and solutions provided by different technology vendors. All these applications, dashboards, and administrative panels require proper cybersecurity protection.
Secfense helps public organizations build protection against threats like phishing and credential theft by preventing unauthorized access to applications from any device. This means that public institutions can easily meet national and international compliance requirements and security regulations without investing extensive time and resources in it.
User Access Security Broker from Secfense deploys the FIDO2 web authentication standard, or in fact, any other strong two-factor authentication method depending on the organization’s requirements. With Secfense UASB strong two-factor authentication (2FA) can easily be added to every application that requires it. Regardless if it’s an on-premise application, legacy application, VPN, or OWA. User Access Security Broker from Secfense easily strengthens the authentication process on any application and within any application (with the use of microauthorizations).
One of the most effective ways to improve cybersecurity across the entire organization is through so-called microauthorizations. Security admin can use Microauthorizations to add additional authorization requirements within any application. Microauthorizations were designed to maximize the end-user comfort while drastically increasing the level of security within the company. The user journey within the application stays almost unaffected while at the same the security level substantially increases.
Microauthorizations are usually used to track and register attempts of accessing some particular resources within the application when the person is already logged in. Microauthorization can even stop that person and not let him or her continue the journey inside the application.
Apart from securing the login process the User Access Security Broker from Secfense protects the entire application. By default, Secfense UASB stands before the application and secures the user authentication process. Full Site Protection puts Secfense UASB one step earlier inside the infrastructure and therefore protects not only the login process but the whole application. Full site protection makes a distinction between trusted and untrusted networks.

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.
We are excited to partner with Secfense to enhance our user access security for our web apps. By integrating their User Access Security Broker, we ensure seamless and secure protection for our applications and systems, delivering superior security and convenience to our customers.
IT & Infrastructure
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.
