Authlogics Windows Desktop Agent

The Authlogics Windows Desktop Agent brings password freedom to corporate PCs and servers. It is a convenient and reliable way to enhance the Windows logon process by adding passwordless Multi-Factor Authentication and password management functionality. Built-in self-service allows users to add their own MFA devices via a simple QR code directly from the desktop. Meaningful password change feedback assists users in choosing a new password by explaining exactly which parts of the password policy it didn’t comply with; instead of a generic Windows complexity error message.

Installation can be fully automated and is centrally managed via Active Directory group policy using tools you already know. Whether you are logging to Windows at the office, remotely from home, or totally offline the agent has got you covered.
