Extra Security with Two-Factor Authentication

april 19, 2017 / Evolve IP

Are you using the Online Routing Manager and do you want to add an extra security level to your management portal login? Evolve IP offers the option of logging in via two-factor authentication (2FA).

Your administrators normally log in using a username and a password. With 2FA, an extra security step is added in the form of a temporary password via text or through a time-based one-time password (TOTP). This adds an extra step to the login process to find out whether the person logging in is really authorised to do so.

Text

During 2FA, the user will automatically receive a code via text on their mobile phone after logging in with their username and password. It is possible to add an extra phone number in case the primary device is not available. The code needs to be entered within the configured period. You can also set the number of logins per user.

Time-Based One Time Password (TOTP)

With 2FA via TOTP, an app like Google Authenticator will continuously generate new, temporary codes which can be used on the Evolve IP login page. Based on a secret key the user can fill in under the ‘Users’ tab in his account in the web portal, a new key is generated for the use in the TOTP app. By default, a user gets 3 tries (can be configured from 1 to 5).
Users can use every TOTP app, but Evolve IP advises one of the following for the different operating systems:

  • iOS, Android or BlackBerry: Google Authenticator
  • Windows Phone: Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator
  • Windows: WinAuth
  • Mac: OTP Manager

It is also possible to offer your web portal users both options. The user can then pick the preferred option when logging in.

Request 2FA

You can set up your management portal with Two Factor Authentication starting from €95 a month. This way, you have taken care of authentication for all administrators in the same admin account in one go. Do you want to apply for Two Factor Authentication? Contact us!
