Incapsula Brings Instant Two-Factor Authentication To Websites Of All Sizes

Login Protect allows instant activation of two-factor authentication on any Web page or application area

Redwood Shores, Calif., July 1, 2013 – Incapsula, a cloud-based Web security and performance service, today announced Login Protect, the latest addition to its security portfolio. Login Protect enables instant activation of two-factor authentication to websites and Web applications using Incapsula, without requiring any coding, application changes, or third-party authentication service integrations.

"Many website and applications that use Incapsula rely solely on passwords for authentication, but passwords alone have become ridiculously easy to circumvent," said Gur Shatz, Co-founder and CEO, Incapsula. "Recognizing this, we set out to make this feature accessible to everyone, from website owners and administrators to Software as a Service (SaaS) providers. With Login Protect, it's easy to add a second factor of authentication to restricted website areas, internal applications, and development environments."

Login Protect allows easy and instant activation of two-factor authentication on any Web page or application area with centralized user management and built-in provisioning. This means that Incapsula customers can manage security and access control of all of their Web applications through Incapsula's single dashboard, without the need for integration or installation of any additional hardware or software.

The core benefits of Login Protect include:

Seamless Integration – Login Protect can be activated in minutes, with minimal configuration, and without additional installation or coding.

Flexibility – Login Protect can be deployed on any Web page or application area, using multiple verification methods.

Central Management – Login Protect offers centralized control over multiple logins, across several websites and applications.

Login Protect is available on all Incapsula plans; visit www.incapsula.com for more information or to sign-up for Incapsula. Visit our blog for a product demo.
