Passwords are a commonly-used method of digital security, but the humble passwords are often a security risk and can be cracked within minutes.
So if ‘passwords’ are so vulnerable, what should we do?
That's why two-factor authentication (2FA) has emerged. 2FA adds a second layer of identity verification to secure user accounts. By combining account password with a second authentication factor, attackers cannot access your account even if they obtain or crack your password.
Turnsteel Authentication Server - Token Management System (Turnsteel AS-TMS) is a two-factor authentication (2FA) solution - a type of multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution based on 3 specific factors: What you know (knowledge factor) - What you have (possession factor) - Who you are (inherence factor). Turnsteel also provides anti-phishing mechanisms and secures your user account from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.
A scalable cloud-based system with integrated models that can easily accommodate sudden exponential increases in the number of users, Turnsteel AS-TMS ensures continuity towards users' experience perfectly
Turnsteel works seamlessly with an array of applications. A suite of APIs is available to support different programming languages and integration with existing enterprise IT systems.
This principle asserts simply that no single error of the operation system can stop the entire from working. It allows running multiple application instances in one server, allows load balancing (active-active mode) and running of core modules on different appliances.
Turnsteel supports different authentication methods: 2FA Hardware / Software Tokens, Simple OTP, RADIUS, Transaction Signing, or Biometrics Authentication (Voice Recognition and Facial Recognition) that entities can use to tune system usability and security requirements based on risk and sensitivity of actions or transactions.
Turnsteel AS-TMS - one of few high quality authentication servers that have been successfully deployed for financial institutions and governments, adheres to international security standards at the highest state:
Turnsteel AS-TMS manages access in the back-end system - a powerful authentication solution dedicated to providing security of the systems and customers. It is a highly recommended method to integrate 2FA into your authentication process.
Potential problems may arise from the end-users’ devices be it changes or upgrades of operating systems (iOS, Android), new device models, malwares on users devices, or from software vendors updating their SDKs. These can be easily resolved through our Troubleshooting Analytics Engine (TAE), which is designed to detect and resolve bugs and errors, including software problems stemming from end-users’ devices to provide "peace of mind" for any customers who deploy TAS.
