Secure Remote Access

SQID Secure Remote Access is a military grade premium product for protecting remote access to corporate or online systems, such as ‘card not present’ online payments and gives users more control of their automated account topup and account recharge. SQID utilises off-net (out-of-band) IVR technology so no authentication information ever passes across the Internet. Also the platform is partitioned so authentication credentials are logically separated from your other systems.
Remote access is especially challenging for network security. Man-in-the-middle attacks and key stroke readers make otherwise safe systems vulnerable to attack. SQID patented Secure Remote Access features the strongest remote identity management system available.

Safe

We have moved the user authentication layer away from the web to a completely separate, more secure, out-of band channel. The SQID Secure Remote Access system is safer as the authentication and user identity layer is entirely off net. This movement means that authentication credentials never travel over the internet and cannot be inadvertently left on public terminals. The SQID remote access system provides immunity from attacks associated with tokens (such as Man-in-the-Middle – MiM), Smart Keyloggers and more. In addition, unlike SMS solutions, the system is immune from Phone Number Hijack attacks.

Strong

Utilising computer generated (IVR) calls to the user’s mobile phone provides multiple authentication means. Our entry-level PIN based solutions provide easy to use multi-factor authentication for customer authentication of events and transactions, like payments. High end solutions can incorporate Voice Biometrics and random elements which cannot be replicated utilising current technologies. SQID’s authentication combined with Voice Biometrics overcomes the potentiality of a recording of the user’s voice being used to compromise the system.

Back-end protection

We have also separated the Authentication system from your other systems. This logical separation ensures your user’s authentication credentials and your sensitive internal information are strongly partitioned. This means criminals need to compromise multiple systems to gain meaningful information. It also delivers ultimate privacy protection.

Flexible and adaptable

The system supports multiple outcomes. Users can even identify and report fraud as it happens while a transaction is in progress.

Convenient

The SQID remote Access System is quick to set up. It takes less than 90 seconds to setup new users, and as the system requires no management, despatch or replacement of tokens or other devices it offers a Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than tokens and other remote ID solutions.
