ExchangeDefender Passwordless Logins
ExchangeDefender is pleased to announce the addition of passwordless logins. This convenient authentication method has become an industry standard and we’re implementing it at the request of many of our clients.
The problem: “I don’t know what it is, I don’t know what my password is!” OK. Reset password. Wait for the email. Pick a new password. A more complex password. One that you’ll forget as soon as you log in. We’ve all been there.
In our May update, you will see another login option under the default sign-in, allowing you to sign in with email. It’s as simple as it sounds, type in your email address and we’ll email you a magic link (with an OTP code) that you can use to log in to your account without your password. It’s that simple.
The session will stay logged in for a month so as long as you’re on the same computer/mobile you won’t have to worry about tracking passwords with ExchangeDefender.
PS. This means anyone with access to your mailbox will have access to ExchangeDefender as well – so for those of you that value security over convenience we’ve also added a domain-level policy that can disable this feature.
We should talk…
ExchangeDefender is aggressively adding features and growing the security footprint and we understand that IT staff is already spread thin enough – so if you’re tight on time or security expertise we are able to help by reviewing, applying, and configuring your mail flow so users get fewer interruptions while getting the latest and best-tuned security service for email.
