FREMONT, CA: The enterprise file security provider, Vaultize recently launched Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in its Enterprise File Syncand Share (EFSS) - embedded with enterprise digital rights management (eDRM).

"Vaultize manages critical and confidential data of enterprise customers, those in security conscious and regulated verticals including Fortune 500s. To ensure highest level of security with additional IT controls, Vaultize is introducing multi-factor authentication for all users (internal or external), accessing the Vaultize system. This further strengthens enterprise file security parameters - helping IT administrators and security officers in data governance and compliance," said Sameer Vitkar, Regional Sales Head at Vaultize. ‘

Since the traditional security systems depend on passwords to authenticate and authorize access to protected data, these password-only systems are more vulnerable to security breaches as there is only one layer of security. To offer extra layer of security, multi-factor authentication (MFA) or two-factor authentication (2FA) is utilized to protect against such breaches. The information is accessible only to the authenticated users through extra layer of security.

The enterprise IT can have full-fledged control over user authentication through Vaultize MFA. Vaultize administrator can also configure policies to add One-Time Password (OTP) or RADIUS (e.g. RSA SecurID tokens) as the second factor of authentication along with regular password based authentication (with controls over password complexity and rotation). While logging into Vaultize, the internal as well as external or third-party users can be enforced by Vaultize MFA (e.g. while accessing a shared link or while opening a file protected using Vaultize Digital Rights Management).
