Swiss SafeLab M.ID Suite

Many two-factor authentication solutions are based on additional devices/tokens. However, with these it is always cumbersome to carry them along. M. ID solves this problem in an elegant way: The OTP (one time password) is sent as text message to user's cell phone. Alternatively it can be generated with an app on smartphones or similar devices.

The M.ID Suite is divided into the high availability core element M.ID Server and its different M.ID Agents to secure all commonly available logon portals such as Citrix Web Interfaces, all RADIUS capable appliances and even VMware Connection Server is supported.

The reason why customers decide for the M.ID Suite are our licence model, easy to install, a simple rollout and easy to use on different ways. Additionally the M.ID Suite can be easily integrated into the customer’s service desk for user and third party support employees.
