Testimonials

The September 2017 and the Deloitte breach, compromised client’s emails, including those of U.S. government agencies and large enterprises. That taught us a lot in terms of better protection for our consultants. With Hideez Password Manager in place, we are sure that the company takes good care of projects under NDA.

WHAT?

Hideez offers an all-in-one solution that includes secure password managementdesktop MFApasswordless authentication based on biometric logins or QR codes, and many other features. To better understand this, we’ll take a closer look at the four main components of the Hideez Authentication Service. These are:

Hideez Server is a FIDO2 / WebAuthn server & SAML 2.0 Identity Provider for managing privileged access, managing remote offices and employees, and controlling their physical access. It delivers passwordless FIDO2 authentication and two-factor authentication in an environment that features many users and workstations, meaning that you obtain strong authentication that doesn’t rely on shared secrets. For example, the Hideez Server allows IT admins to grant or restrict access to bank managers, bank officers, and other staff in a streamlined and secure manner. 
Hideez Authenticator is a handy free mobile app available for both Android and iOS devices. Once employees set it up on their mobile devices, they can utilize the app to conveniently sign in to their accounts or generate one-time QR codes. In other words, the Hideez Authenticator essentially turns the user’s smartphone device into a personal security token. And, as it meets robust authentication standards, users don’t have to worry about any unauthorized access problems or other issues with their accounts.

When it comes to ensuring better cybersecurity in finance institutions, the Hideez Keys are an optional addition but a very valuable one. Hideez Key 3 and Hideez Key 4 are the best hardware security keys allowing secure password management, 2FA and passwordless authnetication based on FIDO standards, proximity-based authentication and physical access control all at once. They comply with the latest cybersecurity standards and support multiple protocols. With these small devices, employees can obtain added conveniences like managing their passwords, using autofill features, and generating one-time passwords. Moreover, users can also lock or unlock Windows computers using the proximity lock feature and even open RFID door locks.

🖥  Hideez Client

The last part of the Hideez Authentication Service, but an equally important one as the previous three, the Hideez Client software for Windows personal computers ensures all of the above features work without a hitch. Like the Hideez Key, this is an optional component of the Hideez Authentication Service. It provides a connection between the keys and the server and ensures secure user credential management.
