Authlogics, a specialist in multi-factor authentication and a Curve Group company, has announced that AxizWorkgroup is its first local distributor and will deliver authentication solutions to resellers in Africa.
Authlogics, which provides an alternative to traditional authentication and transaction verification methods, was acquired by Curve Group in June 2016. A core authentication solution for the Curve Banking platform, Authlogics forms part of the company’s incubation engine, Curve Systems.
“We believe that moving away from password based authentication is inevitable and we look forward to driving the adoption of a new generation of solutions among businesses in Africa with AxizWorkgroup,” says Steven Hope, CEO of Authlogics.
Authlogics introduced the concept of one-and-a-half factor sign-on and takes advantage of the latest smartphone technology to replace costly hard-tokens with highly secure and reliable soft-tokens. Its authentication solutions are language independent, which make them particularly valuable for African businesses that serve multiple language customers.
“We are excited to offer Authlogics to our reseller base and are ready to drive implementation of this next generation authentication technology,” says Alessandro Postiglioni, business unit manager – security at AxizWorkgroup.
As an Authlogics Gold Partner, AxizWorkgroup offers resellers account and project management, specialised security skills, national logistics and delivery infrastructure.
The Authlogics Partner Programme includes independent software vendors, original equipment manufacturers, system integrators and distributors who offer Authlogics authentication solutions.
“Our vision is to replace passwords and offer new solutions to our customers to increase employee productivity, save time and secure critical company applications, devices and data. In an African context, we are looking to solve authentication challenges of clients and particularly those with an online presence, such as online retailers, cloud service providers and managed services,” says Hope.
The Authlogics solutions reduce the reliance on passwords, relieve pressure on the helpdesk for password resets, ensure regulatory compliance, mitigate risk and improve customer experience with simple, memorable and secure login.
“Our team is geared to drive adoption of Authlogics through the reseller channel and we look forward to taking this innovative solution to the African market,” concludes Postiglioni.
