CRYPTOCARD’s Authentication Protects Everything:
Cloud & web apps: Cloud and web applications are protected via the use of the industry standard SAML, by using one of CRYPTOCARD’s authentication APIs, or by the use of CRYPTOCARD’s web agents. Alternatively there are many plug-ins available for web servers that allow interaction via the industry standard RADIUS protocol.
Network access devices: Network access devices such as VPNs and firewalls normally communicate with BLACKSHIELD using the industry standard RADIUS protocol. This includes most devices from Cisco, Checkpoint, Juniper, Sonicwall, Fortinet and Watchguard for example, as well as Microsoft’s firewall and VPN offerings. Some devices such as older versions of Citrix Gateways that do not support RADIUS fully can be protected by installing a CRYPTOCARD agent on the device. Configuration can be completed in a matter of minutes, after which BLACKSHIELD protected users can authenticate.
Windows & Unix: Unix systems and applications that support PAM can also authenticate against BLACKSHIELD. Any application that is “PAM aware” can use PAM’s support for RADIUS to authenticate against BLACKSHIELD.
Use of a CRYPTOCARD agent protects Microsoft Windows desktops, domains, remote desktop services and terminal servers. The agent can also allow offline authentication, for example for use with laptops where they are not connected to the corporate network.
RADIUS: If you are using RADIUS for communication between a protected device or application and BLACKSHIELD it is necessary to install a CRYPTOCARD agent on your RADIUS server.
