Ezeelogin Integrates Google and Yubikey Two Step Authentication for better security
- Join Date
- Dec 2011
Ezeelogin has integrated Google two factor authentication and Yubikey, a secure USB Authentication Device for bringing in an additional layer of security for system administrators accessing Linux servers via SSH Clients ( secure shell ). Enterprises,data centers, and hosting companies with Linux servers and many employees to manage them, can now incorporate two factor solutions out of the box to secure Linux servers thus bringing the security measures on par with the stringent security standards followed by the online banking portals.
Linux system administrators can now install the Google Authenticator app on Android and IOS smartphones to generate the time based tokens for authentication. The Yubikey offers a more convenient way of entering the security tokens with just a tap on the device making it the faster option of the two.
"Adding Google two factor authentication and Yubikeys into Ezeelogin's two factor authentication arsenal has increased the security of the Linux servers that it manages. Securing ssh access ( secure shell ) to Linux servers with Google OTP ( one time passwords ) and Yubikey OTP was a major milestone that was achieved. Most companies now have their employees working remotely from their homes and the company has no control on their desktops security. It was important that we introduced two factor authentication as quickly as possible to ensure that access to the Linux servers does not fall into wrong hands" said Sunjith P.S, CTO, Ezeelogin.
Linux hosting and cloud based companies are increasingly looking for different ways to secure, monitor and control access to multiple Linux servers when employees today are increasingly working from the comforts of their home or telecommute to work. The new work styles introduced new security challenges and two step verification emerged as the favourite solution to rise up to the challenge and is being increasingly integrated in ssh. Ezeelogin helps companies to quickly deploy the latest in two factor technology.Two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security and is often mandatory for PCI compliance with regulations.Keeps your servers and business safe & secure when you outsource your technical support or when you give ssh root access to your business critical servers.Watch the tour video
How does Ezeelogin improve the security of your servers and hence protect your business?
- Provide root SSH access to your servers without giving out your root passwords.
- Provides ssh log of who accessed your servers via SSH with details of time and date of access. Easy search feature would allow you to search through all the access on your business critical systems.
- The superior ssh logging so that all command executed by users in ssh is saved including the output of the commands executed. Basically, you would have a complete logs of what a ssh user does on your servers and you can search through the logs just in case of security breach etc. This is a must have of for companies that have an ISO 27001 series security certification as its mandatory to log and document all activities on a server.
- SSH user access control allows you to easily grant or deny users, ssh access to servers that you select.
- Provide root whm access to your servers at the click of your mouse.
- Provide root control panel access at the click of your mouse.
- Provide access to datacenter portal at the click of your mouse.
- Automated switch user(su) login that would improve security without the hassles of remembering the passwords.
- Automated root password reset on all or group of server at the click of a mouse. This can be set for automated periodic reset as its good to keep changing your root passwords regularly.
- Automated ssh key reset at the click of a mouse.
- Command line filter helps to prevent accidental execution of commands like rm -rf / etc. Basically create any filter using regular expression.

THE Ezeelogin FIVE STAR Reviews *****
"Our team manages hundreds of clustered systems in different datacenters. We required a product that could safely manage our infrastructure servers in a PCI-compliant fashion with console-based remote logging capabilities. The other two requirements involved a method to securely manage our SSH keys and allow us to issue remote commands across large groups of systems. Ezeelogin has saved us countless hours in management and streamlined our processes by combining so many features into one product. Our technicians no longer have to switch between two or three different interfaces to get critical information. Our on-calls and support staff get to put system management and our customers first while letting Ezeelogin do all of the heavy lifting. We highly recommend Admod's Ezeelogin product for any size environment. It is the most stable and affordable product available in this market that provides the robust scalability that seems to endlessly adapt to the ever-changing IT environment."

"Within the first few weeks of using Ezeelogin we could see what a powerful system it is. Ezeelogin has saved us a vast amount of time when managing servers, it's great to be able to log into all of our servers through 1 portal, rather than having to manually find the relevant server details when a client has a problem. If you need a quick and secure way to manage multiple servers, I can highly recommend Ezeelogin."
