With QRentry™, you can log into Windows by scanning a QR Code.
QRentry decreases help-desk costs dramatically: end-users can unlock themselves with a smartphone if they forget their Windows password or lose their smart card or authentication token. And by monitoring technicians' access to Windows local administrator accounts, QRentry closes a frequent loophole in conformance processes.
QRentry is a module of Evidian Authentication Manager, a software solution that facilitates strong authentication deployments and enables elaborate authentication scenarios. QRentry can be downloaded from Google Play and the Apple Store.
Watch QRentry in action:
Always-on access for your end users
What: when users lose a password, smartcard or authentication token, they can unlock themselves via QR Code.
Why: QRentry is the ideal partner of strong authentication deployments, which often generate "lost smartcard" or "biometrics doesn't work" helpdesk calls.
The amount of helpdesk calls decreases dramatically
Users can unlock themselves, even if helpdesk is out of reach
Make administrator access security-compliant
What: technicians must scan a QR Code to access a PC's local administrator account. All such accesses are logged centrally with the technician's own name, and access privileges can be removed in a few seconds. End-users cannot imitate the technician's actions to get administrator rights.
Why: QRentry removes the need for quasi-public "admin / admin" passwords that are difficult to modify. Local administrator accounts are no longer the "Achilles' heel" of compliance.
Works even if the network, mouse, USB port and strong authentication are broken
Also works for remote troubleshooting
No additional hardware or software on the PC
The end-users register their smartphone themselves
No need for network access on the PC, no need for data access on the smartphone
Security and confidentiality
Uses a non-replayable access code
All accesses are controlled and logged centrally
Access to some applications can be restricted
Fast user adoption
QR Code usage is widespread among employees
55% of US mobile users own a smartphone (Nielsen 2012)
