Why AuthN by IDEE?

Solve your biggest problems with the world’s easiest MFA solution. 

With AuthN by IDEE, organizations no longer need to choose between the best price point, the best security, or the best user experience – now you can have it all whilst preventing all credential phishing and password-based attacks (including AiTM attacks).

Why Do I Need MFA Deployed
for All Users? 

We’re glad you’re here. It means you understand the importance of protecting your people, networks, and systems. That’s awesome, and so are you!

Here’s just a quick reminder of why MFA is the right choice for anyone with an internet connection. And we're talking about all users! Because if you don’t have MFA deployed for all users it’s as if you didn’t have it all. Your systems are only as fortified as your weakest link.

Compare MFA: How Do We Stack Up?

Let’s cut to the chase. You need MFA. There are many options, and what you need to understand is how do the different technologies and solutions stack up?

This comparison table reviews the technology as it refers to the entire identity lifecycle. That means from onboarding and registering a user or a device, through backup, recovery, and everything in between.

MFA that Everyone Loves 💙

Whatever your main motivation for deploying MFA, there are several factors to consider. Whether you’re in the finance team, you’re the CIO, MD or perhaps a potential user, you want to know that this MFA solution will work for you and work for everyone. 

The Best MFA for Security Teams 

Hackers are trying to gain access to your systems and data. You know this. Ultimately the goal is account takeover. Stop them in their tracks by shifting the focus to prevention. Take back control and do not allow bad actors' entry in the first place! 

Boss it, with the highest level of authentication security with phish-proof MFA.

Prevent all credential phishing and password-based attacks including adversary in the middle (AiTM) attacks – 80% of all initial access breaches eliminated in one! It's time to go shopping for that cape!  

Streamline your tech-stack!

Security teams can reduce the cost and complexity of their tech stack by focusing on prevention rather than an over reliance on detection and damage minimization. Get to the heart of the problem and cut it off there. 

Finally, you can trust your tech!

Our research shows that the vast majority of security leaders that have MFA in place have still experienced successful attacks and breaches. Don’t be that company. There is another way (and it’s phish-proof MFA)! 

Start making headlines (but for all the right reasons)!

AuthN by IDEE will ensure you stay out of the headlines by preventing all un-authorized initial access caused by compromised credentials. Hold your head up high, whilst your competitors weep!

Phish-Proof

We are all familiar with the term ‘phish resistant’ by now, and yes, we agree it is far better than anything that has come before it. Sure, you could even call it ‘next-gen’, but what comes after next-gen? Well, it’s a solution that is 100% phish-proof of course! A solution so robust it can guarantee to protect you and your organisation from every single credential phishing and password-based attack (including Adversary-in-the-middle, AiTM).

Now that’s more like it! So, what comes after next generation? We’re going with DS9… 
If you know, you know! 

Super-fast Deployment

Ever feel like you’re drinking through a fire hose? MFA is on the list, but it might have been sitting there for some time. Thing is, if you’re fire-fighting a lot of the time, it’s difficult to start new projects. That’s why AuthN by IDEE is designed to be as simple and fast to deploy as possible. As a fully SaaS MFA solution and with no additional hardware to manage, no extra software to install and no-code integrations, your IT team will be your best friends for life!

It’s fast. It’s simple and it’s easy.
Let us show you how!

Passwordless

There’s passwordless and then there is ‘real’ end-to-end passwordless. Did you know that the majority of enterprise-grade passwordless MFA, provide a ‘passwordless user experience’ while still relying on passwords for actions like onboarding, account recovery or other stages within the identify lifecycle? Yea – we’re pretty miffed too! 

If you want to go really passwordless, then find out more about AuthN by IDEE.

Same-Device MFA

You know the scenario. You just want to login and access your accounts, but then there’s this code being sent to your phone… and hang on! Grrrr!

Not only is it frustrating for users, but it is a nightmare for IT departments that suddenly find themselves the new logistics arm of your organisation. It’s expensive and just adds another point of failure. What you really need is same-device MFA! No extra hardware. No second device. Just un-phishable MFA.   

FIDO2 Security Key

Maybe you prefer having two devices, or it might be that your use case absolutely demands it. It could be because you have devices without a TPM chip. Either way, if you still require the same high-level of authentication security, but with a security key then we have a solution for that too.

The Best MFA for IT Teams 

IT is notoriously busy. MFA deployment projects should be quick and pain-free. Ongoing maintenance and management shouldn’t add to the already ‘too long’ to-do list.
Get your time back! 

Spend time on things you actually like doing with speedy deployment!

Easy out-of-the-box integrations. So simple, your intern can deploy it in one afternoon.

Bored of all those calls to the support desk about lost and missing tokens?

Spend support time on real problems not managing and replacing MFA tokens, USB security keys and fobs. Spend money on cool tech, not on constantly replacing additional hardware.

Fit & forget.

Change your MFA, not your IT processes. Get it and forget it.

Zero agents.

Nothing extra to install or keep up to date with a fully SaaS solution and zero agents. 

Passwordless means regaining precious time and saying, ‘ta-ta to the tedium’!

Kiss goodbye to changing passwords every 90 days and more to the point, resetting passwords. Resetting passwords every day is a drag! It’s time to get your time back! 

The Best MFA for Users

It’s time to smash those preconceptions and finally do away with the old. Traditional 1st generation MFA is clunky, and users don’t like anything that adds extra steps. AuthN by IDEE is the new way of doing things. It eliminates friction with same-device authentication. 

Increased productivity with same-device authentication

Your workforce: Just picking up my smartphone to authenticate, and I can see that there's a new notification from Jack (my mom’s next-door neighbor from three years ago) *Logs into Facebook*

You with AuthN by IDEE: Enjoying higher employee productivity, which starts with no smartphones.

No more chunky and overstuffed keyrings!

Some of you might like feeling like a jailer every time your reach for your keys (weirdos), but seriously, massive cumbersome keychains full of fobs, just so you can access your accounts, is so yester-year. No one thinks those bulging pockets look cool. Move over to same-device MFA. 

Increased adoption

Users love AuthN’s same-device authentication flow, and there’s nothing new to learn. Just unlock your device to authenticate and login in one. 

Protect everyone!

Start using MFA designed for everybody – it’s easy to use, and fits into just about any use case, meaning you can protect everyone. No one gets left behind! 

Phish-Proof

We are all familiar with the term ‘phish resistant’ by now, and yes, we agree it is far better than anything that has come before it. Sure, you could even call it ‘next-gen’, but what comes after next-gen? Well, it’s a solution that is 100% phish-proof of course!

The Best MFA for Compliance Teams 

Compliance is a Breeze. Compliance success starts with phish-proof MFA. 

Zero Trust

Zero PII

Zero Knowledge 

Zero Passwords 

Fully compliant with all major standards 

The Best MFA for Finance Teams 

MFA that quickly pays for itself and will help any finance team to reach their targets quicker … get behind the decision for AuthN by IDEE and your bonus is pretty much a done job!
Just check out these savings! 

Stop wasting budget on infuriating nonsense! 🎉

  • No more password resets!
  • No initial outlay for devices, smartphones, or USBs for every employee (or was it two for each user you were advised to buy)?
  • No more replacement hardware to purchase every time an employee loses their USB tokens.

Swift time-to-market

With integrations that take just minutes, the time-to-value is the best you will find. And with MFA that is so easy, time lost to training and change management is something only your competitors are suffering with (sucks to be them)!

No expensive changes required.

AuthN by IDEE works with your existing systems so there is no need to budget for any changes.

No hidden costs. 

Eliminate the need for numerous additional licenses and add-ons for the highest level of security. With AuthN by IDEE, phish-proof is standard and comes with simple and transparent licensing. 

Best conditions on your cyber insurance premiums with phish-proof MFA.
