Company enhances endpoint data security with two-factor authentication access-challenge and single sign-on; expands support for multiple identity management providers, including Centrify, Okta and Ping Identity
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – December 09, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/– Code42, the leader in endpoint data protection and management for business and enterprise, today announced enhanced security and productivity features in the Code42 EDGE Platform—the platform that powers the company’s CrashPlan enterprise endpoint backup and SharePlan enterprise file sync/share—which enables IT professionals and employees to be more productive, without compromising endpoint data security.
Two-Factor Authentication Access-Challenge and Simplified Single Sign-On (SSO) Strengthen Data Security
“Our ability to combine the highest levels of endpoint data security, scalability and end-user productivity is why we’re trusted by the world’s largest companies,” said Mitch Coopet, co-founder and head of product at Code42. “Single sign-on support for multiple identity providers—including Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services—and advanced two-factor authentication demonstrate our commitment to enterprise IT teams tasked with balancing security with employee productivity.”
The company also strengthened the security and simplicity of the login process with SSO across the Code42 EDGE Platform. Single-sign on provides an increased level of security for the enterprise by limiting the number of ways credentials can be compromised; since CrashPlan and SharePlan users sign in using just one shared set of enterprise login credentials, they save time and avoid the frustration of memorizing and entering multiple passwords for different applications. In addition, IT spends less time supporting lost usernames and passwords.
Single Point of Integration with Multiple Identity Management Technologies
“Partnering with Code42 supports our mission to find innovative ways to connect people to their applications from any device, anywhere, anytime,” said Chuck Fontana, vice president of Alliances and Corporate Development at Okta. “Code42 shares our commitment to enabling employees to access the tools they need to get their work done in the most secure, efficient manner possible.”
“As more companies adopt more cloud and mobile technologies, creating a seamless login experience while also maintaining end-to-end IT control is critical to empowering employees to work more productively and efficiently,” said Chuck Fontana, vice president of corporate and business development, Okta. “Code42 shares our commitment to empowering people to access the tools they need to get their work done anytime, anywhere and on any device.”
