Authlogics Windows Desktop Agent – New Version 4.1

The Authlogics Windows Desktop Agent is a simple and reliable way to enhance the Windows logon process by adding Multi-Factor Authentication security and removing the Windows password for workstations and servers. Where passwords are still required, the agent assists users in choosing a new password by explaining exactly why a new password has failed to comply with the password policy instead of a generic Windows complexity error message.

The agent allows users to log on to PC’s when disconnected from the network and fully offline, even when using a phone as a token. Active Directory Group policy provides flexible, centralised management together with the Authlogics Authentication Server while deployment can be fully automated. Users are also able to add and manage their own MFA tokens with a simple QR code registration.
