What is Two-Factor Authentication?
Two-Factor Authentication is a security process that confirms user identities using two distinctive factors:
1. Something you know, such as a Personal Identification Number (PIN)
2. Something you have, such as a smart card or token
This could be described as the financial "ATM experience" that we use in our daily lives. The overall strength of Two-Factor Authentication lies in the combination of both factors, something you know and something you have.
- Secure Access to buildings, parking and other physical areas
- Authentication to networks from remote or workstation locations.

Why do I need the Two-Factor Authentication solution?
Network breaches and e-commerce fraud are increasing rapidly, as reported in the Computer Security Institute -2001 Computer Crime and Security Survey.
Today 85% of large corporations and government agencies acknowledge network security breaches. Of these organizations, 64% acknowledge financial losses that run into millions of dollars due to network breaches and e-commerce fraud.
Neither technologies nor policies alone really offer an effective defense for your organization. Networks are compromised despite the presence of firewalls. Theft of trade secrets take place despite the presence of encryption or static passwords.
Organizations that want to survive and protect their proprietary information in the coming years need to develop a comprehensive approach to information security.
With these astonishing figures in mind, the need to go beyond a simple static password is imperative. To achieve this, Datacard has introduced an additional factor of authentication. Datacard's Two-Factor Authentication is designed to curb network and e-commerce abuse!
