Why do you need FortiToken? Basically, because secure passwords aren’t enough anymore. And, with the rising sophistication and frequency of phishing attacks. A secure account needs a second method of authenticating users. Thankfully, most of the larger internet-based companies have made it simple.
What is two-factor authentication?
Two-factor authentication is becoming the new standard for beefing up digital security. Nowadays, it’s nearly impossible to secure an online or mobile account with just a password. Corporate Armor partner Fortinet has a series of 2FA products, called FortiToken. With Fortinet’s FortiToken, a password is used along with a security token and authentication server. It provides far better security.
The FortiToken 300 is a USB Token for X.509 PKI certificates. It is used in securing Internet transactions for applications including signing/encrypting email, PDF documents, Microsoft Office files, and software, as well as for strong authentication to your VPN or web-based applications.
