ActivIdentity released a new version of its 4TRESS authentication system that enables granular control of organizations’ enforcement of operating systems, soft tokens and soft token versions.
4TRESS is a soft token system that can work with users personal smart phones and tablets, should a company have a Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) policy. 4TRESS enables system managers to provide multi-layered strong authentication for these devices. The soft token provides a one-time password and can be set to authenticate for a specific OS or version of the soft token.
The update also allows administrators to generate reports that show number of end-users by type of OS or the version of soft token used.
This version of 4TRESS is currently available for the Authentication Server and AAA Server for Remote Access solutions. It will be available for the Authentication Appliance in early 2013.
