The story

Our customer runs a SaaS Enterprise IT Remote Access platform that manages millions of secure Remote Desktop sessions globally each year.

They needed to implement secure Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) which should not rely on SMS text messages.  

To address this issue, the customer needed a modern and user-friendly MFA solution that could be easily adopted by their extensive client base, while also providing enhanced security. 

Varyence took complete responsibility for the design, development, hosting, and distribution of the mobile and cloud components. We also handled UI/UX design, project management, and quality assurance activities. 

Varyence continues to maintain and enhance all platform components.
