Israel's Foreign Ministry deploys LyncShield's Two Factor Authentication solution

 

The Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs has implemented LyncShield's innovative solution for secure mobile Lync connectivity.

LyncShield was developed by security company AGAT Software Solutions to allow workers safely use approved mobile devices outside the corporate network to connect through Microsoft Lync.

The Foreign Ministry is using LyncShield's innovative two factor authentication to determine which devices will be granted access to the system based on a self-service registration process.

The two-factor authentication ensures that the Foreign Ministry benefits from another protection layer by adding device identification to the user name and password. It allows the ministry to control and manage the approved device and prevent uncertified devices from using the service.

In order to protect corporate passwords, LyncShield defines application authentication credentials exclusively for Lync. The Active Directory credentials are not stored on a mobile device. LyncShield also protects from DoS, DDoS and brute force attacks.

By adopting LyncShield's unique approach, the Ministry has eliminated the usage of network credentials on workers' mobile devices, and resolved the threat of unauthorized connection.

"We were looking for a solution that would allow us to decide which workers would have access to Lync through their mobile devices and to specify which smartphones would be granted such access," said Yaniv Cohen, system administrator at the Foreign Ministry. "Our experience with LyncShield was very positive and we are currently exploring ways of using more LyncShield features."

"LyncShield's solution, which ensures that workers use only a predefined device, has enabled Foreign Ministry workers to benefit for the first time from the advantages of Lync when they are outside the office," said Yoav Crombie, Business Manager of AGAT Software Solutions. "This successful project illustrates the benefits of using LyncShield for organizations that adopt a BYOD policy."

 AGAT intends to launch soon a similar solution for Microsoft's SharePoint and business apps for supporting all mobile devices.
