The system provides authentication using: browser, mobile applications, hardware tokens, SMS, Voice Response and so-called interactive channels.
The implementation of Swivel technology provides the following benefits for the client:
- One system to secure technologies from different manufacturers.
- Additional security (2 factor) for access to: business applications, VPN, WEB services, cloud and selected administrative accounts (also applies to Microsoft products).
- PINsafe – up to 99 codes can be used without authentication from the Swivel server.
- Administrators do not know user PINs, they are randomly generated.
- Prevention of PINs being change to simple ones, e.g. 1234, 1111.
- Self-management – the user can change the PIN himself, reset the PIN or pair the PINsafe on the phone with his login.
