Award-Winning Two-Factor Authentication

Companies recognize the need for strong authentication to protect their data and other digital assets, but they may lack the requisite skills, manpower, infrastructure or budget to implement a two-factor authentication solution. CRYPTOCard's new Managed Authentication Service offers the benefits of strong two-factor authentication without the need to implement the infrastructure in house.

CRYPTO-MAS is a managed service that provides two-factor authentication for companies that do not want to manage it themselves. CRYPTO-MAS is based on CRYPTOCard’s award-winning authentication technology, which is deployed by major organizations in over 70 countries.

Key CRYPTO-MAS Benefits:

  • Strong authentication without hassle
  • Quick to implement: no new hardware or software to install
  • Low cost & reduced technical burden
  • Auditability and standards compliance
  • Scaleable: 5 – 50,000+ users
  • Flexible: Mix & match authentication

Increased Security

CRYPTO-MAS provides all the security benefits of CRYPTOCard strong authentication:

  • Positive verification of users based on two factors, an authentication token and a PIN;
  • Protection against shoulder surfing, social engineering, phishing and other forms of password theft;
  • Reduced help desk calls due to lost or forgotten passwords, mandatory password complexity and password expiry.

Easy to Implement

CRYPTO-MAS requires no additional investment in infrastructure. Nor does it require your employees to have technical skills in two-factor authentication. You can be up and running with a secure, reliable, strong authentication mechanism within hours.

Low Up-front Costs

Because you are not purchasing any software or servers to implement your authentication solution, your up-front costs are significantly reduced. CRYPTOCard offers the CRYPTOMAS service for a low monthly fee, providing predictability in your expenditures and scalability as you grow. The only upfront cost to the end-user is the purchase of the selected tokens and an annual managed service fee.

High level of Service

CRYPTOCard’s Service Level Agreement provides you with the protection of a high level of service, without the requirement of staffing a help desk with technically sophisticated employees.


CRYPTOCard’s Managed Authentication Portal (CRYPTO-MAP) provides a secure, easy-to-use interface for provisioning users, assigning tokens and other administrative tasks. You can manage users and tokens yourself without having to contact CRYPTOCard.

Multiple AuthNodes
