TokenOne is an Identity Assurance Platform provider, strengthening authentication by replacing passwords and other security technologies with a single, simple solution which links to risk and identity management systems to provide complete control and non-repudiated secure access. It is easy to provision on and off campus, remotely in Australia or around the world.
TokenOne Authentication enables universities to prove who collaborated on or accessed any document, such as research papers or student essays and reports. TokenOne further enables universities to exceed internal and external expectations with a secure, convenient and cost-effective solution that enables all users (faculty, staff and students) to self manage their own identity and account.
The majority of Australian institutions use Exchange or Office 365 with many ultimately planning to move to Office 365 to increase the ease of collaboration. Engagement in international research collaboration has been a significant focus of Australian institutions that feature in the global university rankings. TokenOne Authentication complements Windows infrastructure, specifically systems currently used to provision and manage their users. This provides an easy and cost effective solution for faculty, staff and students.
This is all achieved with TokenOne’s patented technology delivering genuinely strong two-factor authentication that ensures the user’s secret PIN is never entered, transmitted or stored so is a genuinely kept secret. Many students and staff who already use social networks like Facebook and Twitter will be familiar with the ‘notion’ of 2FA.
