ExchangeDefender Passwordless Login is a new feature that lets users get into their ExchangeDefender account easier and faster. Instead of logging in and tracking passwords, the user just enters their email address and the OTP code we send there – and they get access to all their ExchangeDefender services.
The Passwordless Login feature will drive down the support costs because that was the major issue our clients found in supporting login and authentication problems. We even joked that you may have answered your last login problem email. We now have more data and feedback indicating that this feature is a hit:
In practical terms, wider adoption of this feature means less support work for login and authentication. The fact that it’s more popular than password reset on launch means the users have already seen this feature elsewhere and trust it as a secure way to get into their account.
We’ve also heard from our technical and compliance audience: “It allowed us to finally take you up on an automated password expiration knowing that it will keep our passwords secure and users wouldn’t notice.“
The value we provide to our clients is in the ability to securely email, send secure encrypted messages, and continue emailing when there are IT issues. By making it easier for our users to get to these features everyone benefits.
Thank you for your business and for trusting us to protect your email.
On Thursday, May 18th, the login experience at ExchangeDefender will change. Everything still works the same way as before and the new features will not affect user login: you’ll still go to https://admin.exchangedefender.com and type in your email & password to log in.
Below the main login block, you will see the new Advanced Login block featuring Passwordless and Administrator login features.
Passwordless – Tap this if you forgot your password and don’t want to set a new one. We’ll email you a code (for account verification) and when you type it in you’re good for the next 30 days.
Administrator – Tap this to log in to the management console for ExchangeDefender – Domain Admin and Service Provider. It’s safer & smarter to use user->domain, and service provider escalation and this is a more convenient way for smaller organizations.
Social and app authenticator login buttons are on the bottom and we now support all the TOTP app authenticators and encourage you to lock your accounts down.
