TSplus 12.30 Update Enhances Remote Access Security

Posted on June 4th, 2019

TSplus has recently released a major update. The changes focus on enhancing security features and bringing new options that enable safe and reliable Remote Access. The following article reviews TSplus 12.30 main addition: SMS option for 2FA Security.

TSplus 12.30 Offers 2FA Security with SMS Verification

TSplus is proud to announce a new layer of security for Web Portal users. The Two Factor Authentication security option for Web Portal can now be used with SMS.

How does TSplus 2FA work?

TSplus Two Factor Authentication was introduced with Version 12 as an additional way to secure access to the Web Application Portal. TSplus already provides a wide range of security tools to keep remote connections safe. From the built-in HTTPS Web Server to free SSL certificates and personal Web Credentials, servers and users are protected.

However, as cyber-attacks techniques get more sophisticated, powerful security tools are necessary to fight them. Relying on passwords and usernames can put organizations at  risk of having their data stolen and their business collapsing.

TSplus 2FA for Mobile Web and Enterprise editions offers an extra-layer of security.

It requests a two-step verification process to open a session on the web portal. In addition to their credentials, users will need to enter a unique and temporary code generated on a separate device (such as a smartphone) to log-in. This prevents malicious people from accessing the user sessions with a stolen password.

The existing method requires the installation of an authenticator app (ex: Google or Microsoft Authenticator, Authy…) on the user’s device. The user then scans the QR code displayed on the Web Portal at the first connection to authenticate the device. The App is then able to generate a new code at each connection, even when the device is offline.

TSplus 12.30 integrates a second method to use the 2FA feature: the verification code can now be sent by SMS.

In the AdminTool, the Administrator has access to a complete dashboard for 2FA, where he can easily configure users, select the verification method of his choice (per user), manage SMS settings and test the feature directly. 50 SMS are provided with the 30 day trial (10 users). It is simple, flexible and powerful!

On the user side, this is what will now be displayed on the web portal at the first connection after enabling 2FA:

The user can choose his favorite method of verification

The Administrator can also choose to enforce one specific method. In this case, the user will only see the selected option for verification.

The full process for configuring the TSplus Two Factor Authentication feature is described in detail in the online User Guide.

The latest TSplus improvements ensure high compatibility with Windows 10 1903 “May 2019 Update” for Pro, Education and Enterprise editions.

Additionally, TSplus’ unique security add-on RDS-Knight, has been updated as well and the latest 4.2 version is offered as a trial with TSplus 12.30.

TSplus 12.30 includes many others improvements and fixes released in previous versions. Details of these changes can be checked on the change-log: https://dl-files.com/TSplus-changelog.html.

    "We invested years creating DriveWare for the transportation industry. Our customers were looking for a way to run their software on the cloud. There were two options: rewrite the entire app for the web or use TSplus. The answer was simple. We chose TSplus because our core package ran inside the browser without any modifications. Remote printing features help our users print on their local printer(s). In addition, they can access their program from their IPad or any Android device. What more can we ask for? The support from the TSplus team has been excellent. I highly recommend this product."

    "This is a very easy product to set up and use. TSplus has easily integrated into my existing and aging Citrix farm, to expand the services offered and give new remote access options. With every update of this product I find more and more uses for it. The universal printing works so easily it is a relief when compared with what I have put up with in Citrix."
