Prioritizing 2FA to maximize security org-wide
Caljan is a logistics automation technology provider specializing in helping parcel carriers, retailers, and manufacturers around the globe handle loose cargo efficiently. In 2019 Caljan was acquired by a larger corporation and had to rebuild its IT infrastructure from scratch as part of the acquisition. One of the main cybersecurity projects that had to be prioritized in this extensive IT project was the implementation of a 2FA solution.
To maximize login security for all its employees and prevent outside actors from accessing critical company data logistics automation technology provider Caljan sought a 2FA solution that was both easy to use for employees, fast to implement, and required minimal administration from the IT department.
Security Ease-of-use 2FA
"We picked Uniqkey because they maximize our login security by making 2FA super easy to handle." - Kent Kirkegaard, IT Manager at Caljan
2FA is considered one of the most effective ways of protecting an organization against security threats that target user credentials such as phishing, brute-forcing, and social engineering attacks and thus finding and implementing a 2FA solution across the entire organization was a low-hanging fruit in terms of security ROI that had utmost priority for Caljan.
"2FA is a low-hanging fruit when it comes to security return on investment so finding a solution that fits our organization's needs was on top of the priority list" explains Caljan IT manager Kent Kirkegaard.
Limited IT resources lead to high demands
But not any solution would suffice. Limited by budget and manpower Kent Kirkegaard sought a solution that would require minimal administration to manage while offering an intuitive user experience for the end-user to ensure adoption. As an IT manager Kent always tries to put himself in the shoes of the end-user when evaluating new software and tools.
"Everyone is busy. If a tool isn’t easy to use nobody will use it. And so the usability of a solution plays a huge role in the final decision-making."
Simplicity is the key to security
To implement 2FA protection on its employees’ most used and thus most vulnerable services (their Microsoft 365 accounts) Caljan decided to use Uniqkey as their org-wide 2FA solution.
With Uniqkey at hand, all Caljan employees have a simple tool to authenticate their logins safely and easily. To securely log on to services, employees simply request a login and then accept it on the Uniqkey app which then auto-fills all credentials and 2FA codes and logs them in.
In addition to the 2FA solution, Uniqkey also helps Caljan's employees adopt better password hygiene via its user-friendly password management solution that securely stores and remembers employees’ passwords, lets users create and use high-strength passwords with its integrated password generator, and enables simple and secure password sharing between individuals and departments.
Combined, Uniqkey provides simple and effective solutions to an array of Caljan’s critical cybersecurity challenges. All delivered in one tool.
