Passwords are one of the vulnerabilities of IT security. One way to overcome this is to have an additional level of security provided by multi-factor authentication, for example, by combining the use of virtual smartcards and passwords. The BSI also demands strong authentication for security-critical application areas. In this whitepaper, we will focus on the combination of these methods and the use of virtual smart cards in this context.
SmartCard Middleware - manufacturer-independent and flexible
With multifactor authentication, DriveLock guarantees secure login through a manufacturer-independent SmartCard middleware. The use of DriveLock SmartCard middleware makes it possible to perform secure multifactor authentication for a large number of applications (web applications, e-mail or VPN clients, browsers, SSO, hard disk and file encryption) so that you can overcome the vulnerability of insecure passwords.
Application control with predictive whitelisting and security awareness measures
IT/cyber security is a challenging topic in the modern IT world, with changing threat vectors such as higher degrees of openness of devices, mobility, cloud applications, and new challenges resulting from Industry 4.0 initiatives. The challenges of IT security managers are not easy.
In order to manage these challenges there are two key points in every cyber security strategy:
1. The human factor, i.e. the behavior and actions taken by users inside an organization. 2. The cyber security paradigm has to change over time. This new paradigm is based on a holistic security approach technically backed by cloud-powered AI.
Trojans - How the Financial Industry is being blackmailed
In 2016, the German financial sector was affected by the Ransomware Trojan attacks with a magnitude never encountered before. These attacks follow a clear pattern. This white paper explains the procedure of these cyber-attacks, and the steps you can take to protect yourself.

Industry 4.0 - Cybercrime has become a significant threat in the industry
The data of financial or health care systems have always been a target for hackers and since digitisation started, there has been a growing concern of these attacks in the manufacturing industry. However, the industry cannot do without digitisation. This challenges the IT departments to minimise security risks and to protect the business-critical systems against enemy attacks, sabotage and espionage. This whitepaper explains how the cyber-attacks are performed and what you can do to protect yourself.
