User Access Security Broker from Secfense allows organizations to introduce strong multi-factor authentication on all employees’ accounts and on any web application in a matter of minutes. It is possible to protect the entire organization against phishing and credential theft risks regardless of its size.
„Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing however implementation was always a difficult part. Secfense being a security broker helped us solve the implementation problem. We were able to introduce various 2FA methods at once to work with our web applications.”
User Access Security Broker from Secfense helps keep all remote workers secure. There are plenty of two-factor authentication methods on the market. User Access Security Broker from Secfense makes it possible to integrate any of these methods with any web application without expensive software development. And it only takes minutes, not weeks or months.
You can think of User Access Security Broker from Secfense as an intermediary security layer, as it can introduce any multi-factor authentication method or other user access policy independently: without developers, contractors, or a third-party code. The solution from Secfense did to 2FA what virtualization had done to infrastructure.
Since the solution works as a reverse proxy that starts learning traffic patterns once deployed, there is no need to hire programmers, choose vendors, or interfere with the application’s source code.
As a result, companies that have implemented the User Access Security Broker from Secfense:
User Access Security Broker from Secfense secures the login process and protects the entire application. By default, Secfense broker precedes the application and secures the login process. With Full Site Protection, the security administrator can even deny users the ability to see the website unless they have already used the second factor to authenticate their identity in the trusted network.
The User Access Security Broker from Secfense always stands between the user and the application. The difference between its Standard Mode and the Full Site Protection Mode is that the first one allows everyone to access the website. In contrast, the second one enables access only to a certain group of users.
In the Standard Mode, it does not matter if you are a random visitor, hacker, robot, or company employee. Neither does it matter whether you try to log in from home, from an internet café, or with your phone. You will still be able to access the website, log in with your credentials, and, soon after that, pass the Secfense broker authentication.
When Secfense broker works in the Full Site Protection Mode, only people who have already registered the second factor from within the organization’s trusted network can see and access the website. This means that the authorized personnel (company employees) have to first go to the office in person and activate their second factor of authentication there, using the trusted network. Otherwise, they will be treated as unauthorized users and will not even be able to view the website.
This is especially important when users are trying to access corporate applications that are visible only from within the trusted network. Before Secfense broker, users had to be physically present in the office or connected with the trusted network via a VPN in order to do that. Secfense User Access Security Broker is a much safer alternative to a VPN because it allows using corporate applications from outside of the trusted network while maintaining a high level of security.
Want to test out Access Security Broker in your testing environment?
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.
