TEL AVIV, Israel, October 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —
Secret Double Octopus, the leader in password-free authentication technology, announced today its Octopus Authentication solution is now available for Mac enterprise users. Octopus Authentication is the first high-assurance, password-free authentication for macOS within corporate networks managed by Microsoft’s Active Directory.
As companies implement increasingly strict password policies, users have to manage downgraded experiences and reduced productivity. This has led to enterprise companies looking to eliminate the workplace password altogether. With Mac now a fixture in every enterprise company in the world, delivering password-free authentication for macOS will change the way work is done, freeing up valuable time that was otherwise spent searching for, memorizing and entering passwords.
Microsoft’s Active Directory (AD) centralizes authentication and authorization for domain resources, however, by only using one password to access all resources, AD passwords are a lucrative target for attacks. In place of passwords, Octopus Authentication enables login from a macOS host using a high-assurance, password-free authenticator.
Octopus Authentication for macOS supports access to all enterprise resources, whether on-premise, remotely accessed or in the cloud. The solution is built upon unbreakable cryptography that is highly resistant to common attacks, such as phishing, MitM and cracking.
“The Mac is all about top notch user experience, but at the workplace things get complicated due to security concerns, as users need to memorize and change complex passwords,” said Raz Rafaeli CEO of Secret Double Octopus. “Octopus Authentication for macOS eliminates the nuisance of passwords at work, introducing multi-factor authentication at every login.”
