Success Story

How a global law firm secures remote employee access


Clyde & Co is a leading law firm with 52 offices around the world and $551 million in revenue.

  • Increased security by replacing static passwords with one-time passwords (OTP)
  • Fast, efficient deployment of OneSpan Mobile Authenticator Studio and Digipass® devices
  • Easy and intuitive for users

How it Works

See how OneSpan Logon for Windows works with mobile push notifications

The mobile experience is fast, easy, and secure. A push notification is sent to the user’s device, which opens an out-of-band app. With a tap, the user is logged on. There is no need to type in the one-time password (OTP) – meaning the password can’t be intercepted by keyloggers.

For additional security, simply layer in local authentication factors like biometrics.

Authenticate Using Software Solutions

Generate a one-time password (OTP) on your mobile with a touch

Mobile authenticator apps can protect your data and corporate network from unauthorized access, while reducing the complexity of offering secure remote access to employees and third parties.

An authenticator app enables users to logon to applications via their phone with a simple fingerprint or PIN and one-time password. This facilitates secure access to SSL VPNs, extranets, and online applications, while remaining compliant with evolving regulations.

Users can also scan QR codes as an alternative authenticator to create an even simpler, smoother user experience.

Deliver Simple Multi Factor Authentication

Secure access with hardware authenticators and MFA

Hardware authenticators protect corporate data and resources by enabling multi factor authentication (MFA) with one-time passwords (OTP)

OneSpan offers: 

  • The broadest portfolio of hardware OTP devices, ensuring a solution that meets user preferences and enterprise requirements.  
  • The flexibility to handle any use case. Protect access to VPN, cloud applications, custom web applications, and digital workspaces, all with a single token.
  • Token customization to reinforce trust by white-labeling OTP devices with your brand.   

Centralize Lifecycle Management

Deploy MFA capabilities at mass scale​

A centralized authentication server validates authentication requests and ensures secure access to corporate resources and applications. It supports and centralizes the administration of your entire range of authentication tools, including OTP hardware and software authenticators, biometrics, push notifications, and QR codes. 

To reduce task complexity, OneSpan authentication server solutions come with: 

  • A web-based administration console to simplify management
  • Self-service capabilities so users can activate their authentication tokens and manage their account, freeing up valuable IT resources and reducing helpdesk costs
