Windows Login Challenges

Protecting your Microsoft Windows login with just a password is no longer safe. Persistent attacks are driving organizations to increase their defenses on the endpoint, which can be used as an entry point for ransomware and other attacks. Now, most cyber insurance policies require companies to employ multi-factor authentication (MFA) for logging into the endpoint.

Passwordless authentication isn’t limited to local Windows login — it extends to Windows remote desktop (RDP) and virtual desktop (VDI) login too. Many organizations look to their identity and access management (IAM) providers for MFA solutions. But, IAM solutions don’t solve the need for an integrated solution to secure the endpoint. Companies end up investing in another authentication solution, leading to a fragmented cybersecurity system.

Our Solution

WinMagic has the broadest set of passwordless choices to match your needs.

Phone Authenticator
via Bluetooth low energy

Trusted Platform Module/Personal Identification Number

Phone authenticator
via network/IdP

Identity Verification (PIV)

USB token

These same methods can also be used for pre-boot login
with WinMagic full disk encryption, providing a consistent user experience.

 Effortless Remote Authentication

Better yet, once the user is authenticated to the endpoint, MagicEndpoint can provide “no user action” authentication to remote services seamlessly, directly or as a delegated authentication service to your IAM.

Passwordless Authentication for Windows Login

MagicEndpoint allows organizations
to enable Windows login by providing
the tools to easily deploy and use authentication that best suits their users.

 Passwordless Phone Authenticator

Passwordless Phone Authenticator via BLE
Organizations using phones for authentication are phasing out SMS, OTP and Mobile Push because they are not phishing resistant. Unlike Out of Band (OOB) mobile authenticators, the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) mobile phone authenticator communicates locally to the endpoint device and requires proximity to work. This proximity provides a strong, phishing-resistant association between the authenticator and endpoint.
The MagicEndpoint authenticator app authenticates to the laptop via BLE to provide high assurance, cryptographically enforced, passwordless MFA login to the endpoint. Users don’t have to enter anything on the endpoint for a truly passwordless experience.

Passwordless Phone Authenticator with Network/IdP
For organizations using phones but can’t use Bluetooth, MagicEndpoint supports mobile push at Windows login for a consistent user experience.

 TPM with Local PIN

With organizations that find external tokens and devices hard to manage, users can log into Windows using the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) with a local Personal Identification Number (PIN). Windows login is protected by the TPM and can be configured for SSO. The TPM PIN is local and can’t be attacked remotely. The TPM also provides hardware-based anti-hammering protection.

 Smart Cards, USB Tokens and PIV Card

For organizations required to use smart cards, Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards and USB tokens for access control, users can log into Windows using their hardware tokens. Windows login is protected by the hardware token and can be configured with SSO for the best user experience.

 MFA for IAM Solutions

MagicEndpoint offers IAM solutions, like Okta, integration for Windows login.
