TSplus New 12.20 Release Offers Extra Security for the TSplus Web Portal

Posted on February 7th, 2019

In January, TSplus customers discovered the new major release 12.20 displaying a fresh new look. Aside from the complete makeover of the Admintool and a smarter organization of all settings and configuration tools, the 12.20 release offers a new add-on: Two Factor Authentication (2FA). Read on for more details!

TSplus Increases Again Web Access’ Security

At TSplus, security has long been the top priority. Administrators can select from a wide range of options to enforce protective rules for their users and remote servers. A few examples of the tools available: Active Directory, Web credentials, SSL certificates.

As threats change and grow, TSplus’ Security Experts perform exhaustive research to stay in front of today’s security threats and to prepare for the challenges of tomorrow. That’s how was born RDS-Knight, unique and amazing security add-on providing up to six protective features for RDS. To read more, check RDS-Knight web page.

The new 2FA tool completes this arsenal by adding an extra layer of security to the TSplus Web Application Portal.

TSplus 2FA Goes Beyond Password

The TSplus HTML5 Client allows users to remotely connect to their business applications whenever they want, wherever they are, just using a web browser. The TSplus Web application portal is a great solution for business who want to give their employees the flexibility to work from home or when traveling. It’s easy to set up, and administrators can customize it with a nice corporate design. 

However, as desktops and data move to the Cloud, and the line between work and personal space is blurred, the security solutions of yesterday are no longer enough to ensure the security of corporate networks.

Relying on just usernames and passwords to secure online accounts is no longer considered safe. The Development Team at TSplus recognized this and stepped up to create a better solution. 

Introducing Two Factor Authentication!

This new add-on is available with the TSplus Version 12 release as a 30-days trial for 10 users!

Two Factor Authentication has recently made a splash in cybersecurity because of its ability to drastically reduce the risk of hacks: It prevents access to users’ session even if someone knows their password.

How? It combines two different factors to complete the login process and to achieve a greater level of security:

  • The user credentials (Log-on/Password)
  • A secure code (generated by the authenticator app on Smartphone/Tablet/Smartwatch)

Users will always need both pieces of information to log in their session: their personal password and the random verification number displayed on their mobile device.

Access TSplus Web Portal using 2-steps- verification
TSplus 2FA Allows to Use Mobile as Extra Layer of Security

It is quick, intuitive and simple to implement. 

With TSplus 2FA built into the Web Portal or the Mobile App, users can authenticate using strong and frictionless passwords displayed on their mobile devices, even when these devices are off-line. With a single touch on the authenticator app, they can generate dynamic, one-time number combinations (the verification codes are generally reset every 30 seconds) to supplement static usernames and passwords with added security. It means that even if the passwords are acquired, they cannot be reused or sold.

The authenticator apps are available across a wide range of platforms. Customers can use the following:

Two-factor authentication is designed to work with the TSplus Web Portal and the TSplus App for mobile (customers can use the same code if it’s the same device!). Last but not least, TSplus provides this tool as an add-on: the license is valid “per server,” which is not the case for others “per name users” 2FA solutions on the market.

    "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."
