Defend against the information security threats of remote access actively
The National Information & Communications Security Taskforce of the Executive Yuan made an announcement in March of 2021 requesting agencies to strengthen the control mechanisms for remote access. This announcement was made because government agencies have allowed outsourced companies to maintain their information and communication systems remotely recently, resulting in access mechanisms being exploited by hackers; indirect attacks to the information and communication systems of the agencies occurred over and over again.
Remote connection opened the door to convenience, and it naturally became the coveted target of hacker attacks. Risks such as brute force cracking of accounts and passwords and vulnerability attacks have always existed during VPN or remote desktop connections; how to guarantee the security of the data transfers between the intranet and extranet of organizations is an important issue for the control mechanism of remote access. CHANGING’s ID Expert Dynamic-auth Solution sets up rigorous checkpoints for this convenient connection as the first line of defense to protect information, actively achieving powerful ID identification.
ID Expert uses two-factor authentication to help agencies defend against the information security threats of remote access by adopting multiple authentication technologies, meeting high-level system protection requirements. Complete management functions are also included to provide real-time notification services for login records and abnormal login behaviors; this is helpful for immediate responses during crises and regular monitoring of access logs, to further establish and implement management mechanisms.
IT administrators no longer need to change passwords regularly or after remote access has ended. ID Expert uses the “unpredictable, non-repeatable and invalid once used” features of dynamic passwords (OTP, one-time password) to protect each authentication with encryption based on the principle of secure safety algorithms. Fingerprint recognition is also supported, using unique biometric factors as the second factor for ID identification. Quickly identifying ID with fingerprints can improve authentication efficiency and information security strength effectively; the user himself/herself is the best protection factor.
ID Expert can also integrate various systems, in which the remote access system supports major brands of VPN Firewall applications compatible with the Radius channel, as well as virtual desktop applications including VMware VDI, Citrix VDI, ThinPlus VDI, Microsoft RDS (Remote Desktop Services), OpenText Exceed and Amazon WorkSpaces. The many interface applications can fully utilize security control in remote access mechanisms.
ID Expert uses active defense mechanisms to enhance the control mechanism of remote access.
CHANGING has been committed to identification technology for over 20 years; under the continuous transformation of the digital environment, such as biometrics, FIDO authentication and single sign-on integration, how to improve the technologies, types and applications of authentication are all key targets that CHANGING is continuously working on.
