Rublon is cloud-based cybersecurity software that helps companies protect data and control employee logins. This is done by two-factor authentication via email, Rublon mobile app (iOS, Android) and SMS.
Two-factor authentication secures access to corporate networks, software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud applications, protects the identities of users, and ensures that a user is truly the one he or she claims to be.
Rublon makes the phone an authentication token
Rublon turns the user’s mobile phone into an authentication token. After installing Rublon’s mobile app, the user is prompted for his email address. After entering the email address, the user will be sent a verification link to this address. Clicking on this link automatically activates the Rublon app on the user’s mobile phone, which can now be used as an authentication token for secure logins.
The Rublon app is available for free download on the Apple App Store and on Google Play. It works on all popular iPhones as well as devices with the Android operating system.
Rublon QR code visually verifies authentication tokens
After entering the correct username and password, the user is presented with a QR code that must be scanned using the Rublon app installed on the user’s mobile phone. This process authenticates the user if the QR code was scanned with the appropriate mobile phone. The user’s mobile phone is thus an authentication token.
Automatic authentication on trusted devices
Users got used quickly logging in via password. Thus, every extra step during authentication is a burden. Rublon respects the time of its users. During the initial login on a previously unused device, Rublon allows the user to save the device as a trusted device. During the next login on such a device, it is sufficient to enter only the password in order to successfully complete the login process. This means that Rublon does not change anything in the everyday life of the user. Only when new, previously unknown devices are used for logging in, Rublon intervenes and requires additional authentication of the user.
Rublon Admin Dashboard allows control in real-time
Who, when and where – to get answers to these questions, log into the Rublon Admin Dashboard. As an administrator, this shows you which users have logged into which applications, when and from where. You can also manage your users by creating new users, editing their data, or granting or blocking access. You can also edit the authentication methods available in your applications.
High compatibility thanks to Rublon API
For Rublon to fulfil its purpose, it must be integrated with other applications. Plugins for applications such as WordPress, JIRA and Confluence enable easy integration without programming skills. Thanks to the Rublon API, Rublon can also be integrated directly into applications, making two-factor authentication available to all users. Once implemented, no programming knowledge is required to activate Rublon for all users. Applications that do not have a Rublon plugin or have not yet integrated Rublon can programmatically activate Rublon’s two-factor authentication via Rublon API.
Rublon is based on security standards
All connections of the entire Rublon system are encrypted using TLS. This standard ensures that the authentication processes can not be listened to. The security of the Rublon mobile app is ensured by 2048-bit strong cryptographic keys, which are based on the world-recognized RSA cryptosystem. The security of the system was verified with a penetration test by Armium, the cybersecurity division of Astec.
Active monitoring of Rublon’s infrastructure
Rublon’s infrastructure is constantly being monitored, providing immediate response times to potential attacks. This active protection is carried out by the cybersecurity experts of Armium, the cybersecurity division of Astec.
Rublon is used thousands of times worldwide
Renowned companies such as AXA Insurance use Rublon to increase the security of their company data and to protect critical applications against unauthorized access. All in all, Rublon is used in web applications from over 60 countries, with users from all over the world.
