Passwords Are Insufficient
Every day, cyber criminals use stolen credentials to access and infect systems or steal data. What’s most needed to reverse this trend is for authentication to require additional proof of identity beyond simple username and password, and to be widely deployed by all companies – no matter their size.
MFA Keeps Imposters Out
WatchGuard AuthPoint™ is the right solution at the right time to address this security gap with multi-factor authentication on an easy-to-use Cloud platform. With a simple push notification, the AuthPoint mobile app makes each login attempt visible, allowing the user to accept or block access right from their smartphone. WatchGuard’s unique approach adds the “mobile phone DNA” as an identifying factor to further ensure that only the correct individual is granted access to sensitive networks and Cloud applications.
Intuitive, Cloud Management
MFA has been out of reach for some organizations due to the complex integrations and burdensome on-premises management, which makes it impossible to implement without a large IT staff and considerable up-front expense. By contrast, WatchGuard’s AuthPoint solution is a Cloud service, so there’s no expensive hardware to deploy, and it can be managed from anywhere using WatchGuard Cloud’s intuitive interface. Additionally, our ecosystem offers dozens of integrations with 3rd party applications – ensuring that MFA protection is broadly applied for access to sensitive Cloud applications, web services, VPNs and networks. AuthPoint users can sign in once to access multiple applications, and they appreciate being able to add 3rd party authenticators, such as for Facebook or Google Authenticator, to the friendly mobile app.
Insecure password practices are exploited in 81% of cyber attacks worldwide,
and 61% of all attacks target businesses with less than 1,000 employees.

Three ways to Authenticate with the App
Push-Based Authentication - Secure authentication with one-touch approval. You see who’s trying to authenticate, and where, and can block unauthorized access to your resources.
QR Code-Based Authentication - Use your camera to read a unique, encrypted QR code with a challenge that can only be read with the app. The response is typed in, to finalize the authentication.
Time-Based One-Time Password (OTP) - Retrieve your dynamic, time-based, one-time password as displayed, and enter it during login.
WatchGuard Cloud allows you to manage and report on your security from just one powerful platform.

AuthPoint Mobile App
Simple, Effective Authentication at Your Fingertips
AuthPoint implements multi-factor authentication (MFA) using the AuthPoint app. Any external login attempt creates a secure push notification to the user’s smartphone – showing who and from where someone is trying to authenticate. When this message is part of his/her own login process, they simply accept and quickly gain access to the authorized network resources and Cloud apps. When not, then the authorization attempt is rejected, causing criminals to be blocked from gaining access – even when they are using the correct credentials.
Convenient and Easy
No need to carry keyfobs or thumb drives; instead use the device that’s always at hand…your smartphone. Download the AuthPoint app for free from Apple’s AppStore or Google Play and activate in seconds, and then use it to authenticate from wherever you are.
The Power of Push
MFA using Push or QR code is a superior approach over one-time passwords (OTPs), which can be captured before the legitimate owner has the chance to use it. Also, approving or rejecting a push authentication message is quick and simple, without needing to recall and enter a numeric code.
Offline? No Problem!
In situations where the user has no data connection from the phone, such as when on an airplane, then they can use the same AuthPoint mobile app to authenticate. Just read the QR code presented on the computer screen, and only the user with the right AuthPoint app can read it and access protected resources.
Mobile Device DNA
Mobile device DNA provides an additional identifying factor to ensure that only authorized users can log in to systems and applications. Any attacker attempting to gain access using a cloned phone or app would be issued a non-functional one-time password. and so would not be allowed to continue.
Windows and MacOS Secure Login
Windows and macOS machines usually provide login with a simple username and password, which risks exposure of critical information if credentials are compromised. The Secure Login feature adds additional protection by having users authenticate through the AuthPoint app when logging on to their machines.
WatchGuard’s AuthPoint app allows users to store additional authenticators, allowing greater functionality and value from the single app and creating an incentive to comply with authentication practices.

Keep Criminals Outside Your Network with AuthPoint
Our unique multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution not only helps to reduce the likelihood of network disruptions and data breaches arising from lost or stolen credentials, but we deliver this important capability entirely from the Cloud for easy set-up and management. AuthPoint goes beyond traditional 2-factor authentication (2FA) by considering innovative ways to positively identify users, and our large ecosystem of 3rd party integrations means that you can use MFA to protect access to the network, VPNs, and Cloud applications. Even non-technical users find the AuthPoint mobile app easy and convenient to use!
Ultimately, WatchGuard AuthPoint is the right solution at the right time to make MFA a reality for the businesses who desperately need it to block attacks.
Effective MFA Protection with Mobile Device DNA
AuthPoint uses a push message, QR code, or one-time password (OTP) as an additional factor proving your identity; and our mobile device DNA matches the authorized user’s phone when granting access to systems and applications. Therefore, any attacker who clones a user’s device in an attempt to access a protected system would be blocked - since the device DNA would differ.
Easy-to-Use AuthPoint Mobile App
WatchGuard’s AuthPoint app allows users to authenticate right from their own phone! No need to carry key fobs or thumb drives; instead install and activate the AuthPoint app in seconds, and then use it to authenticate from a smartphone. It enables speedy push-based authentication as well as offline authentication using QR codes with the phone’s camera.
WatchGuard’s ecosystem includes dozens of 3rd party integrations with AuthPoint – allowing companies to require users to authenticate before accessing sensitive Cloud applications, VPNs and networks. AuthPoint supports the SAML standard, permitting users to log in once to access a full range of applications and services.
Management on the WatchGuard Cloud Platform
Companies with limited IT staff and security expertise benefit from MFA protection that’s easy to deploy and manage on the WatchGuard Cloud platform. You can access it from anywhere, and there is no need to install software, schedule upgrades or manage patches. Moreover, the platform easily accommodates a single global account view or many independent accounts.
