Strong Authentication for Credit Card Processors and Merchants
Mastercard and Visa have the Payment Card Industry security guidelines requiring two-factor authentication for remote access. Failure to comply with the standards can result in very stiff penalties.
From the PCI requirements:
8.3 Implement 2-factor authentication for remote access to the network by employees, administrators, and third parties. Use technologies such as RADIUS or TACACS with tokens, or VPN with individual certificates.
WiKID is a cost-effective way to meet these requirements - especially for non-employee third-parties. With WiKID, there are no tokens to get lost, only a flexible seat license. WiKID can be delivered on a generic USB token or via a software download to non-employee users.
Moreover, with WiKID, the third-party users can be credentialed based on their company's trusted LAN credentials automatically - allowing for tight control, increased security and reduced costs.
