AuthPoint Mobile App

WatchGuard Authentication

Simple, Effective Authentication at Your Fingertips

AuthPoint implements multi-factor authentication (MFA) using the AuthPoint app. Any external login attempt creates a secure push notification to the user’s smartphone – showing who and from where someone is trying to authenticate. When this message is part of his/her own login process, they simply accept and quickly gain access to the authorized network resources and Cloud apps. When not, then the authorization attempt is rejected, causing criminals to be blocked from gaining access – even when they are using the correct credentials.

Convenient and easy

No need to carry keyfobs or thumb drives; instead use the device that’s always at hand…your smartphone. Download the AuthPoint app for free of charge from Apple’s AppStore or Google Play and activate in seconds, then use it to authenticate from wherever you’re.

The Power of Push

MFA using Push or QR code is a superior approach over one-time passwords (OTPs), which may be captured before the legitimate owner has the chance to use it. Also, approving or rejecting a push authentication message is quick and easy, without needing to recall and enter a numeric code.

Offline? No Problem!

In situations where the user has no data connection from the phone, like when on an airplane, then they will use an equivalent AuthPoint mobile app to authenticate. Just read the QR code presented on the computer screen, and only the user with the proper AuthPoint app can read it and access protected resources.

Mobile Device DNA

Mobile device DNA provides an extra identifying factor to make sure that only authorized users can log in to systems and applications. Any attacker attempting to gain access using a cloned phone or app would be issued a non-functional one-time password. then wouldn't be allowed to continue.

Windows and MacOS Secure Login

Windows and macOS machines usually provide login with a simple username and password, which risks exposure of critical information if credentials are compromised. The Secure Login feature adds additional protection by having users authenticate through the AuthPoint app when logging on to their machines.

Multi-Token Support

WatchGuard’s AuthPoint app allows users to store additional authenticators, allowing greater functionality and value from the single app and creating an incentive to comply with authentication practices.
