CHICAGO, Jan. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentify xFA™ by Authentify is now available on the Samsung Solutions Exchange™, enabling network security developers to secure online properties or networks with two-factor or multi-factor authentication on Samsung devices. The Samsung Solutions Exchange addresses the needs of line of business owners by creating holistic mobile solutions on a robust portfolio of enterprise-grade Samsung Mobile devices.
"We are pleased to welcome Authentify to the Samsung Solutions Exchange," said Nick Rea, vice president of Technical Solutions at Samsung Mobile. "By integrating fingerprint scanning within the Authentify xFA solution on Samsung devices, customers can take advantage of unique security features available only through this pairing."
Authentify xFA is a mobile app that enables Samsung mobile devices to add security layers to network logins and access cloud hosted applications and transactional systems. The xFA app replaces the dedicated security token, or can act as a standalone tool to add authentication factors to access control procedures. In particular, the xFA app enables security practitioners to use the fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S® 5 to capture user authentication and verify access across multiple platforms, all from a single API. xFA also offers voice biometrics, gesture or pattern recognition, digital certificates and secure messaging features, which can be sewn into seamless user authentication schemes.
The Samsung Solutions Exchange delivers a range of third-party offerings for a variety of industries that increase productivity and ROI, including but not limited to sales and management applications, mobile device management solutions, cloud services, collaboration tools and security solutions – all designed to make it easier for enterprises to succeed in the new era of mobile business.

Authentify provides intuitive and consistent multi-factor authentication services for protecting user accounts or key information from unauthorized access. Where many authentication techniques are powerless when valid credentials are wielded by hackers and imposters, Authentify offers certainty, and certainty is power.
Authentify introduced the global security community to its phone-based user authentication services in 2001. Its original phone-based Security as a Service (SaaS) revolutionized the two-factor authentication market. Two-factor authentication (2FA), or two-step verification (2SV), has become a standard for protecting accounts of all types. Authentify xFA mobile multi-factor authentication technology, which employs app endpoints on smart devices, was introduced in 2013. For more information, visit www.authentify.com.
