NetAuthority announced the availability of DeviceLink 2.0, the latest release of its device authentication technology. The product can be deployed by enterprises to provide secure access to mobile and online applications.

NetAuthority DeviceLink provides device authentication, enabling administrators to authorize and link specific devices to accounts and prevent fraudulent access from unauthorized devices. The product turns the device itself into an authentication factor, delivering sub-second device authentication without requiring anything else for the end user to have, know or do, NetAuthority says.

Among the key benefits of the product is that it enables seamless multifactor authentication; strengthens and protects existing user name and password-based authentication; delivers mass-deployable device authentication; works with all major Web browsers and mobile application platforms; generates unique, attribute-based device keys for each authentication sessions; and includes secure service APIs for easy integration into existing applications.

"DeviceLink enables our customers to deploy our patented device authentication technology directly into their own application and security infrastructure, providing them with complete control over their security solution," said Talbot Harty, president and CTO of NetAuthority.

"Organizations across the public and private sectors are rapidly expanding their use of mobile devices for access to highly sensitive business applications, communications and content," Bruce Gilley, president of Fixmo US, a provider of mobile security and risk management products for enterprise and government. "As they do so, they are looking for new ways to secure mobile communications and to validate the identity of users and the devices to prevent unauthorized access to private business assets.”
