Insured portals and employee logins
Digital identity protection in the insurance sector
The LinOTP MFA platform enables you to secure customer access with sustainable and legally compliant multi-factor authentication (or two-factor authentication). In addition to the conventional check of static characteristics such as the combination of user name or the insured person's number and password, several factors are taken into account for each registration.
Protection from Hacks
Meanwhile, stolen or weak passwords are the cause of a hack in 81 percent of all cases* – in 2016 it was "only" about 60 percent. Passwords are no longer secure enough to protect against hacks. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) to verify identities significantly reduces the risk of an attack and secures your network and cloud environments.

The open source-based LinOTP MFA platform provides a quick remedy. It corresponds to all current security standards for one-time password authentication (OTP). LinOTP's open source core is continuously enhanced by experienced IT security experts and enriched with valuable features to always meet the latest security requirements.
Baloise and LinOTP
The Baloise insurance group has also opted for multi-factor authentication (MFA) based on LinOTP: The Group will use LinOTP MFA solution for the secure login and authentication of customers in its online insurance portal. In addition, the MFA solution ensures that employees have access to the Group's own network. SMS, push and QR tokens are used for user authentication. High security and user acceptance as well as easy handling and integration into IT infrastructure were decisive criteria for the selection.
