Public organizations face the threat of cyber-terrorism, malicious activities aimed at critical infrastructure, and the theft, sabotage, and exploitation of government assets and data. TeleSign two-factor authentication adds a critical layer of security beyond a user name and password to secure access to sensitive government data and comply with regulations such as CJIS.
TeleSign 2FA protects access to:
- Sensitive information
- Online government portals
- VPN access
- Public facing portals
- TeleSign 2FA helps Public Sector agencies to comply with the requirement for user authentication to access internal accounts.
- Advanced authentication—which requires a second factor of authentication to access CJIS data.
Trusted Password Reset
Thirty-five percent of help desk calls are password reset related. TeleSign's two-step authentication leverages a preregistered phone number to send a one-time authentication code to the user. By using TeleSign 2FA, customers automate the password reset process, dramatically improving user experience while reducing help desk support cost.
Since September 2010, the Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) requires the use of a second factor for authentication when data is accessed from a remote location.
TeleSign helps government agencies to comply with CJIS by:
- Providing a critical layer of security beyond user name and password using advanced two-step authentication
- Enabling agencies to deploy an easy to use and efficient solution without the costs of provisioning and maintaining hard tokens or software downloads
