FEITIAN Technologies Joins RSA® Ready Technology Partner Program
Feb 25th, 2020
Beijing, China and Santa Clara, CA — Feb 25, 2020 — FEITIAN Technologies today announces interoperability between FEITIAN’s multi-factor authentication solutions and RSA SecurID® Access (the RSA Multi-Factor Authentication solution). The interoperability will allow customers to extend industry-leading, FIDO-certified secure authentication to any sensitive system in all environments. Customers will be able to deploy and control access to systems, applications and data across their organizations existing infrastructure.
The need for multi-factor authentication has never been more critical. As cyberattacks become more prevalent in our ever-changing connected world, the need to authenticate users, both on-premises and in the cloud, in all industries is vital to a secure future.
The Interoperability with FEITIAN Technologies authentication solutions and RSA SecurID Access will leverage multi-factor authentication methods including FIDO tokens and biometrics to enable customers to extend the use of RSA SecurID Access to any sensitive system and address the fast-growing security challenges facing today’s organizations.
“The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) requires all privileged access to our production systems to use multi factor authentication (MFA). In addition, federal regulation requires that privileged MFA must use tokens that are certified by NIST to be FIPS 140-2 level 3. After careful consideration, NERSC chose a mechanism based on storing an SSH credential in a USB token and requiring that credential to login to a set of “bastion” hosts. NERSC currently uses the FEITIAN ePass 2003 tokens for this with approximately 100 staff members,” said Craig Lant, Cyber Security Engineer for NERSC [Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory].
“In addition, NERSC now requires all users to use MFA for accessing NERSC systems and services. However, for that access, NERSC has implemented a time-based one time password (TOTP) mechanism. Most of NERSC’s 7,000 users are able to use a smartphone application to generate these passwords. But, for the few who cannot or who prefer to have a hardware token, we will issue NERSC branded FEITIAN tokens.”
