Reporting via our API

Reporting is a fact of life. And to be honest, good reporting is good for security. In this post, we will take a look at the reports you can generate via the wAuth API to help monitor and manage your two-factor authentication installation.

Wisdom about two-factor authentication based on facts

There is one quote in the Verizon DBIR that speaks volumes about the value of two-factor authentication to enterprise users:

PCI Compliance

If you are using the WiKID Strong Authentication System to meet the PCI-DSS requirement for two-factor authentication, you should upgrade to the latest version of the server.  We have a couple of fixes that popped in a scan.  See the Changelogs.  In particular, build 3.5.0-b1411 disabled unnecessary HTTP methods and 3.5.0-b1403 removed weak SSL ciphers from the WiKIDAdmin.

Big Data vs Easy Data: The WiKID OSSIM plugin

Big data is all the hype right now, but what most companies need is not big data but easy data. The truth is that most average-sized organizations do not even monitor the logs that the collect. That's changing as log management and monitoring are required as part of PCI compliance. Enterprises need log management tools.

Are most people doing two-factor authentication right?

Needless to say we're big proponents of two-factor authentication around here. We also have a pretty broad spectrum of customers from large service providers pushing two-factor authentication out to customer to small businesses doing security for the first time thanks/due to PCI requirements. A lot of infosec rock stars talk about how PCI should be a floor and without disagreeing, we first hand see companies reaching that floor, called by some the 'information security poverty line' and know that it is a big improvement.
