4Login for Windows has been developed under the principle that a passive user is vulnerable and that an active user is secure. The technology has been designed to empower the user to take control of their security.
In contrast to conventional forms of multi-factor authentication, 4Login for Windows eliminates all forms of passivity from the authentication process.
Cyber criminals exploit passivity. Phishing is now one of the primary attack vectors for cyber attacks.
Conventional forms of multi-factor authentication condition users to become passive.
When a user is conditioned to trust information that is sent from SMS or push notification servers on external networks, they become vulnerable to phishing.
It is difficult for a passive user to distinguish between messages that have been sent from a trusted source and messages that have been sent from an attacker.
4Login's Active Security conditions the user to distrust any information that has originated from an external source. The user's security does not in any way depend on receiving information from external sources.
The 4Login user has complete control over the login process and is immune from phishing attacks.
