Milton Security Integrates Two Factor Authentication With Their Cloud Authentication Security Appliance, Further Helping Education and Organizations to Secure Their Networks

FULLERTON, Calif., March 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Milton Security Group, Inc, the manufacturer of adaptive network security appliances and network management solutions, announced today that they have added an exciting new feature to their Cloud Authentication Security (CAS) solution.

Many organizations are looking for different ways to authenticate and track users on their network. Milton introduces two new features options with the addition of both a cloud-based two-factor authentication system, and a locally hosted two-factor authentication.

Any passwords or username, no matter how complex, can be cracked.  The benefit of a two-factor authentication is that even if someone has your login information, they still need that second piece of the puzzle.  This second piece is either something you have, like your mobile phone. DUO Security and WiKID Systems both offer two-factor authentication services, with individual twists.  DUO Security is a cloud-based service, which requires very little set up.  The ease of setup and configuration is painless.  DUO is free for less than 10 users.

WiKID Systems is locally hosted at your premises, keeping your data and control local.  The highly scalable, multi-tenant server is available as a software appliance or as Linux packages. It includes scripts to allow user-self registration in a secure manner, group functionality, RADIUS return attribute support, detailed logging and reporting.  It also allows greater functionality, such as mutual SSL authentication and multiple tokens per user.

"Data breaches are rising at a startling rate and two-factor authentication has become an absolute must if you're serious about information security," states Milton CEO, James McMurry, "and Milton Security Group is striving to give customers as much control as possible."

Since the CAS solution now integrates with both DUO Security, and WiKID Systems, organizations can choose to further lock down their cloud authenticated networks using either cloud based or locally hosted two-factor systems.

Cloud Authentication Security (CAS) was introduced last week, along with its first integration: Google Apps for Education (GAFE).  By using CAS, educational institutions can provide a single sign-on environment by integrating Google Apps For Education Authentication with either of the Adaptive Network Access Control appliances Milton Security manufactures (Edge7200 and ICEGuard).  Now with the integration of Two Factor Authentication into CAS, all organizations, including Education, can fully secure their network, by ensuring credentials and endpoints  are secure.
