Strong passwords make it difficult for hackers, but create frustration for users and support costs if mistyped several times. We solve these problems in a smart way and ensure a fast, secure as well as convenient logon to end devices and applications.
SmartLogon™ is a 2-factor authentication solution for SMEs, industry, administration and government, healthcare facilities and many more. User login is implemented with two factors: Something you know (short PIN) and something you have (security token). Installation as well as central rollout to multiple workstations is done in minutes. Integrated session monitoring ensures that device access is blocked as soon as the Security Token is no longer connected. This means that no PC is left unsecured.

Why 2-factor authentication?
Interview with Matthias Kirchhoff – 2-factor authentication (2FA) makes unauthorized access to PCs and applications much more difficult. With the right solution, however, the user himself hardly notices anything.

Security Token – Which one is right for you?
There are many options for choosing the right security token for your 2-factor authentication – from smartcards or key fobs to USB tokens and your own smartphone. You decide for yourself which is the right one for you. You can find a little help in deciding in our article Security tokens for 2-factor authentication in comparison (German).
Are you already using chip-based time and attendance, electronic access control, an alarm system or employee ID cards with credit for the canteen? With SmartLogon™, you don’t need to procure new tokens in many cases. We will be happy to check existing hardware for compatibility.

All-in-one-package for your information and data security
For even more protection, our SmartLogon™ 2-factor authentication solution is also available as an all-in-one compliance package in conjunction with our HiCrypt™ software for network drive encryption, including hardware, installation support, maintenance and support. This gives you all-round protection for your data from a single source, direct from the manufacturer.
Audit-compliant access protection through 2-factor authentication
SmartLogon™ uses 2-factor and strong cryptography to protect your PC login from misuse. Authentication at the workstation computer is no longer done with username and password, but with a security token and a short, simple PIN. With the introduction of SmartLogon™, you met auditors’ requirements for a secure logon solution.
Integrated session monitoring for even more data protection
SmartLogon™ protects your sensitive customer and company data from misuse, theft and manipulation: thanks to integrated session monitoring, the computer is automatically locked as soon as an employee leaves the workstation with their token. This ensures that no computer is left open.
Work securely even in the home office
With SmartLogon™, you can connect via remote desktop from any workstation using your credentials. This also makes it easy to switch devices and securely access the terminal server from anywhere.
By integrating a KeePass plugin into our 2-factor authentication solution, SmartLogon™ not only provides you with strong authentication software, but also a secure SSO for local installations and web portals. With the tool, new KeePass databases can be easily protected with a token (e.g. a smartcard, USB token or other key) and are then reliably secured against misuse of the master password.
Multi-account capability for maximum flexibility
Need to authenticate with different accounts and different permissions? With SmartLogon™, that’s no problem. Depending on the token type, up to 20 different accounts can be linked. An absolute plus, especially for administrators.
Securing accounts in the cloud with SmartLogon™
In addition to Active Directory and local access data, SmartLogon™ can also be used to link the access data of Microsoft accounts that provide direct access to Microsoft cloud services. Thus, with the help of the 2-factor authentication solution, different types of accounts can be linked with a token and protected against unauthorized access.
Saves IT administration time and trouble
By splitting ownership and knowledge, the requirements for a PIN need to be less complex than the requirements for a password. So your IT administration is less likely to have to deal with forgotten or mistyped passwords. Plus, SmartLogon™ is a client solution and does not require an elaborate IT infrastructure.
SmartLogon™ enables the parallel use of different tokens – even simultaneously on one and the same computer. For example, admin queries can be confirmed by the IT department even during regular operation by the user, without the user having to log off.
Personalized interface for kiosk PCs
Use your token to launch individual programs in the context of your user account. This is especially useful for PCs that are used by several people and that may be located in freely accessible areas (e.g. ward PCs in hospitals or shared PCs in factory halls). In this way, a restricted user can remain logged in at all times, but personalization only takes place when the token is applied. This not only saves time during the logon process, but also allows the application to be closed automatically as soon as the token is removed.
Quickly installed, conveniently rolled out
SmartLogon™ is client-based and is installed on the computers you want to protect from unauthorized access. There are no server components and neither complex IT infrastructures nor directory services are required. For fast and efficient integration of SmartLogon™ into your everyday work, the software supports rollout strategies where it can be installed automatically on designated client computers.

You can choose the variant that suits you best from the following license types*. You are still undecided which solution is the right one for you? No problem! Our sales team will be happy to advise you.
Single user license:
With the single-user license, we offer a product key (license key) that can be used for activation on any number of systems (depending on the offer). One installation with one (simultaneous) user can be licensed at a time. A transfer of licenses is made possible by uninstallation (incl. deactivation).
Terminal server license:
With the terminal server license there is also a product key which must be generated, however, with the number of users to be logged on simultaneously (depending on the offer). So here concurrent users on one system are licensed.
One copy of the software can be installed on multiple devices. However, only as many software instances can be used simultaneously as there are floating licenses. For verification, the software establishes a connection to the WIBU license server.
Volume License (“Golden Key”):
With the volume license, the actual license is bound to the domain and can thus be used as often as desired. A registry value is then set on the systems themselves, which confirms that a corresponding key has been obtained.
*The minimum order quantity is 5 license activations each. Individual agreements can be made within the scope of project request. Simply contact us.
