Symantec Validation and ID Protection Service (VIP)

User friendly authentication to protect networks, applications, and data

Transform a painful authentication process into a user friendly experience without sacrificing security. VIP is a leading cloud-based strong authentication service that enables enterprises to secure access to networks and applications while preventing access by malicious unauthorized attackers. A unified solution providing both two-factor and risk-based token-less authentication, it is based on open standards (ex. SAML, OATH) and can easily integrate into enterprise applications. And now that VIP supports biometrics, authentication can be as easy as a fingerprint – no password required.

Key Features

  • Cloud-based infrastructure – Secure, reliable, and scalable service delivers strong authentication without requiring dedicated on-premise server hardware; and affords timely and transparent delivery of new capabilities.
  • Broad choice of authentication options and credentials – VIP supports second-factor authentication with hardware and free software/mobile one-time password (OTP), and Out-of-Band (OOB); in addition to transparent risk-based token-less authentication that uses device and behavior profiling to block risky logon attempts.
  • Passwordless and Push logon options – Eliminate the password using biometrics built into the latest mobile devices to deliver a user experience that is the ultimate in convenience; for other devices use Push verification to eliminate the 6-digit code with a single touch.
  • Self-service credential provisioning – Deploy strong authentication to end users without requiring IT helpdesk or administrator configuration or intervention.
  • Enterprise infrastructure support – Integrates with network infrastructure via RADIUS out-of-the-box or through plug-ins into popular enterprise applications such as Microsoft ADFS, Oracle, and Symantec Identity: Access Manager. Find a complete list of third-party integrations.
