Strong Two Factor Authentication for Salesforce.com

Executive summary

DIGIPASS as a Service

DIGIPASS as a Service is VASCO’s cloud based authentication offering. On the back-end, there is the ‘DIGIPASS as a Service’ platform, hosted and managed by VASCO.

Salesforce.com

Salesforce.com is the top software-as-a-Service CRM product. It enables companies of any size worldwide to grow revenues, increase customer satisfaction, and reduce expenses. CRM products from Salesforce.com provide sales teams with a complete customer view that is shared with support and marketing in real time.

Threat

Salesforce.com’s end-users trust in Salesforce.com’s ability to properly secure their data. However, the most important aspect of your online security is access control to your data. Password security remains the weakest link in any security infrastructure. 

Furthermore, companies that make use of cloud-based applications may not have the resources to build and maintain a proprietary authentication infrastructure or consider it too costly to do so for a single application.

Goal

For companies who cannot benefit from a traditional authentication model, VASCO developed a cloud based authentication solution to secure access to business-critical data. DIGIPASS as a Service is the independent, security service, protecting your Salesforce.com log-on credentials.

DIGIPASS as a Service provides enhanced protection against account hacking and identity theft. End-users benefit from VASCO’s state-of-the-art DIGIPASS authentication technology already used by world leading banks around the globe, hence adding banking level security to business and consumer applications. With DIGIPASS as a Service for Salesforce.com VASCO offers a standard, secure way to protect your customer information.

Offer

DIGIPASS as a Service is offered as a fully outsourced authentication model to the customer, in which VASCO takes care of the entire authentication process allowing companies to focus on their core business. Companies no longer need to make upfront investments in an authentication infrastructure and benefit from the best-of-breed authentication VASCO offers.

  • fully redundant hosted authentication back-end
  • The provisioning of DIGIPASS software or hardware authenticators to end-users
