UniOTP and why you need it

Multifactor authentication requires multiple forms of identification at log-in. Two-factor authentication systems generally have 2 components “what you know” and “what you have”. The traditional password is static – it is something that the user knows – just having this on layer of authentication leaves the user vulnerable to attack. The second layer of authentication is an extra layer of security that is known as “multi factor authentication” that requires not only a password and username but also something that only, and only, that user has on them, i.e. a piece of information only they should know or have immediately to hand – such as a physical token like the UniOTP.

Embedding multi-factor authentication is a no brainer for developers dealing with sensitive information. UniOTP delivers a sophisticated and affordable multi-factor authentication capability. The UniOTP token enables software vendors to augment their software by seamlessly adding an extra layer of security within systems to facilitate secure network access and perform secure password management.

Dynamic Authentication:
The UniOTP generates passwords that using a series of efficient algorithms compliant with the OATH standard and will be invalid after the time/event limit.

Strong security guarantee:
The passwords are generated by an intricate mechanism that involves a 160bit encryption key and 64 bit counter. Each UniOTP device has a unique symmetric key that is combined with a proven algorithm to generate a new one time password at the press of a button or every 60 seconds. The security of the passwords generated by UniOTP guarantees that that they are impossible for a hacker to circumvent.

Driverless and easy to use:
With UniOTP customers do not have to install any additional drivers or software for the authenticators work. Making the complicated process of authentication as simple as ‘plug and play’. The UniOTP provides network security for a range of devices – PCs, tablets and smartphones .

Customisable casing and strong hardware:
SecuTech understands the importance of brand recognition. We offer laser-etching options for text or logos. Want to remove SecuTech’s branding and replace it with your own? Not a problem! The hardware is designed to last and has passed numerous quality control tests on its internal components.

A wide variety of authenticators:
Every organisation has varying security requirements, SecuTech offers a series of versatile authenticators that seamlessly integrate with existing devices.

Improving your software security

Software security in today’s era is paramount. Software vendors are exposed to numerous risks that put a company’s intellectual property at risk. Malicious entities deconstruct a vendor’s products to duplicate and distribute illegal copies of unlicensed software.

Secutech’s cross-platform UniKey dongle range alleviates the burden surrounding security whilst providing exceptional functionality options. Unikey provides flexibility of versatile licensing schemes and assists in the management and distribution of software. All UniKey products are driverless, this makes distribution as simple as ‘plug and play’, this means installation times and compatibility issues are avoided. UniKey is a superior product in the market due to its high level of flexibility for software license control. Most notable is its range of licensing options, including feature-based, rental, subscription and more. Additionally, UniKey is supported by a wide range of operating systems in both 32 and 64-bit formats. A variety of development platforms and programming languages are also supported.

SecuTech understands the importance of brand recognition. We offer colour customisation of our UniKey products as well as laser-etching options for text or logos. UniKey’s floating license allows software providers to maintain control of all their dongles’ settings from their home base even after distribution.

Secutech’s comprehensive UniKey range offers sophisticated hardware-based data and software protection solutions for the multifaceted security needs of software companies.

UniKey STD:
UniKey STD combines a customisable and easy to use interface delivers the best in software license control facilitated through the use of a physical dongle and password protection. With UniKey, only users in possession of both the physical dongle and necessary software IDs are able to use your software.

Whether you are a seasoned programmer or a security rookie, UniKey STD offers a cost-effective solution for many developers that enable the licensing of software to one user per dongle. UniKey is a standalone dongle ideal for software products that don’t require networking based features.

Unikey Pro:
UniKey PRO offers the same functionality as the uniKey STD with the inclusion of network functionality. Perfect for developers releasing their software for wider distribution, a single dongle connected to any machine in the network allows a large number of concurrent users to access data.

Additionally, UniKey pro comes equipped with monitor and manage the software’s users. Unikey pro is versatile tool suited to developers licensing software to entire organisations or teams.

Unikey time:
In addition to the power packed features of UniKey PRO UniKey time enables licensing of software which requires strict time-based software restrictions.

UniKey time is the only available product on the market that comes with a real time clock that works independently of the host computer’s clock – making the timing with UniKey time more secure and accurate. By embedding the clock in the dongle itself ensures an accurate and tamper-proof time and date, offering assured observance of real-time based features. UniKey Time is the must-have device for software vendors offering trial or time-based schemes.

Unikey Drive:
The UniKey drive augments the functions of the UniKey pro with added mass storage Flash memory. It offers a complete solution to store your application’s data files and your application securely. Data is stored on the hidden, encrypted partition of the UniKey Drive, of which there is no access to, preventing copying or tampering with the data file in any way.

The application runs on another partition that enables the end user to only view the files. The UniKey drive guarantees integrity of the company’s data and prevents the manipulation of data by users who may have malicious intent.

Conventional licensing solutions unmistakably are not sufficient in today’s market, and factors such as the nature, capability and convenience of software licensing solutions have been ineffective for strong intellectual property protection by software companies. Secutech’s UniKey products assures protection against intellectual property abuse and revenue loss.
