Echoworx offers multiple ways to ensure users are who they say they are – with authentication set according to policy, sender or recipient. Authenticating users can be simple, with passwordless authentication methods, like Biometrics, where a quick tap of a finger or glance securely verifies their identity. Or, authentication can add a layer of security, like 2FA, where a user is prompted to enter a username/password combination in addition to a One-Time Password (TOTP) before granting access to an encrypted message.
More authentication options
Authentication may be set by policy, sender or recipient, and include: Full OAuth Access, Self-Registration, Shared Secret Passphrase, SSO, System Generated Verification Codes, Passwordless and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). This level of authentication flexibility allows more control over the access of sensitive documents and messages, including the ability to use secure passwordless options.
Guest compose messaging options for secure inbound communications
