Maximize Your Security

How CNS Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Works

CNS Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a system where two different factors are used to authenticate a system login. Using two factors as opposed to one delivers a higher level of security when authenticating to your machine.

2FA subscribers should note that the service requires an active Internet connection to reach our authentication servers. While 2FA is compatible with client OS’s, like Windows 7, 8, etc., extra care must be taken to ensure that Internet access is Always available to your machine for 2FA to function properly.

CNS Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is a system where two different factors are used to authenticate a system login. Using two factors as opposed to one delivers a higher level of security when authenticating to your machine. The CNS 2FA solution combines something you have – your mobile device (phone or tablet) – with something you know – your VPS Administrator password. This can be compared to using an ATM card to withdraw funds where you are required to have both the card and the PIN to complete a transaction, though in that example your PIN may never change.

CNS 2FA utilizes software tokens for mobile devices (an app). The software displays a changing code on the mobile device, which only needs to be added to the end of the password at login. This avoids the need to wait for an SMS. For subscribers without a modern iOS, Android, or Windows mobile device- SMS codes are still supported as detailed in the “Logging into a 2FA Protected VM” section below. Note: The ability to receive the one-time PIN by email is no longer supported because of security risks (email accounts are often hacked before any other services the user may subscribe to).

2FA renders key loggers ineffective because the PIN code changes every 30 seconds- for token generated PINs and 5 minutes- for PINs sent by SMS (can only be used one time). A stolen password is only 1/2 the information needed to login – the attacker must also have your mobile device in their hand to read the PIN code and enter it. Brute force hacks are out of the question.

We strongly recommend this free service to all subscribers. To date, CNS has not seen a single 2FA protected VPS hacked. CNS is taking security even further by extending the 2FA service to protect CNS Client Area logins. CNS Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is compatible with any hosted Windows server on or off the CNS network, and has been tested on Windows 2003 R2, Windows 2008 R2, and Windows 2012.

CNS Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is available FREE with every CNS VPS subscription, and as an individual subscription service to protect Windows logins. 2FA subscribers should note that the service requires an active Internet connection to reach our authentication servers. While 2FA is compatible with client OS’s, like Windows 7, 8, etc., extra care must be taken to ensure that Internet access is Always available to your machine for 2FA to function properly   Subscribe Now!
