Citrix NetScaler Unified Gateway Provides One Time Password (OTP), Natively
NetScaler Unified Gateway is a Single Sign-On and an SSL VPN solution. It provides consolidation of all remote access solutions and allows an end-to-end SSO across all applications. With SSO across applications that are in the datacenter, cloud, or delivered as SaaS, NetScaler Unified Gateway is a complete solution that helps improve security and user experience, simplify management, and reduce costs.
With NetScaler version 22.214.171.124, we are further enhancing the value with NetScaler Unified Gateway. Not only do we allow consolidating point products for remote access and SSO, but also any third party solution that provides a one-time password (OTP).
Time-based One-Time Passwords (OTP) are a way of authenticating users. It is called One-Time Password, since the password code changes each time. OTPs have transformed from being a hardware-based authentication device, to software based applications that can be installed on your smartphones. For implementing an OTP, customers need an OTP generator and an OTP validator. The OTP generator is what users have that displays the password, whilst validator is the one that verifies the one-time password generated by the user token. NetScaler Unified Gateway can now act as a validating server for OTP thus avoiding a need for an external third party server, thereby simplifying the network and helping reduce cost. By using Google Authenticator mobile application on your iOS and Android phones or Windows Authenticator on Windows phones as OTP generators, you can use OTP as your multi-factor authentication schema at no extra cost.
