RSA Security is the world leader in multi-factor authentication. With RSA SecurID tokens, you can authenticate users using two factors: what they know (their password) and what they have (a SecurID token). Because the SecurID key fob generates a fresh authentication code every 60 seconds, it isn’t vulnerable to the kinds of capture-and-replay attacks that can affect other tokens or biometric techniques.
SecurID support is built into many popular security products from more than 130 other vendors. For a complete list of supported products, visit RSA Secured.
RSA SecurID Appliance
The RSA SecurID Appliance is designed so that a customer can turn it on and be up and running in as little as 15 minutes. The primary setup is managed via a web-based graphical user interface where the administrator is guided through a series of instructions to initialize the date and time, set the administrator password, configure the appliance host name and IP address, install the license, import token records, assign the administrator token and test and enable authentication.
RSA’s SecurID appliance bundles include an appliance, 3 year SID700 tokens, and Authentication Manager license in one easy-to-order, easy-to-deploy package. Support is sold separately in either 8×5 or 24×7 options.
Four Things You Need for an RSA SecurID Two-factor Authentication Solution
- Server hardware. You can use your own server running a variety of operating systems, or the SecurID appliance.
- SecurID tokens.
- Authentication Manager software for the appropriate number of authenticated users. Authentication Manager Base version allows for one server and one backup server replica. Authentication Manager Enterprise allows for one server and up to 10 server replicas. It is designed for multi-site use, as well as high availability and load balancing.
- Maintenance and support for Authentication Manager. This is required by RSA for all orders. Available in Base (8×5) or Extended (24×7).
