Questions about 2FA for AD admins

We've recently had more questions about deploying WiKID for two-factor authentication for AD admins to thwart potential privilege escalation in ransomware attacks.  We've done a proof-of-concept showing that WiKID can make privilege escalation quite difficult.  We realized that we missed a key question about deploying two-factor authentication for admins:  how do I know I won't lock out all my admins?  That's a damn good question.  And here's the answer:

WiKID Android tokens had their data deleted over the weekend by Google Chrome bug

If you woke up Monday morning to a number of upset and confused Anroid token users, we apologize.  We did too.  Over the weekend Google released an update the Chrome that included a bug that deleted other app's localstorage.  Unfortunately, the data is gone.  The users will need to be re-registered.  The new version was rolled out to 50% of Android users.  Google is still working on a fix.  They are not sure if the user data can be restored. We will update as we learn more. 

Scalability improvements in version 5.0 of the WiKID Strong Authentication server

Our recent 5.0 release focused on speed and scalabilty, as well as adding a RESTful version of our API and other enhancements.  The speed improvements are truly impressive. 

5.0 Released!

We've officially released version 5.0 of the WiKID Strong Authentication Server.  There are numerous improvements in this release, most under the hood.  Speed is dramatically increased.  We have setup a separate logging system so that logs no longer go into the postgres database.  We have also fine-tuned the WiKIDAdmin web UI to increase speed and reduce overhead.
