FortiToken Cloud: Cloud Management of Two-Factor Authentication in a FortiGate environment

By Olga Papadimitriou – Business Development Officer

Because most of the common security breaches have to do with user accounts and passwords compromising, the two-factor authentication has been increasingly adopted. The Two-Factor Authentication which is achieved through mobile application tokens or physical hardware, increases the certainty of user’s identity while entering the network. The FortiToken Cloud enables businesses to manage their FortiGate’s token implementations from anywhere if there is an internet connection.

This service includes all the required elements for implementing two-factor authentication in the customer’s FortiGate environment, including the FortiToken Mobile tokens. FortiToken Mobile tokens are simplifying the end-user two-factor experience to a simple swipe or click to accept, by using its push technology.
