Security is an ongoing process within Adaption and that is why we now have implemented the two factor authentication to all our software products.

The security of cloud software becomes more important. Cybersecurity is a topic that has high priority within logistics companies. Research has shown that the majority of the logistics managers is convinced that the success of companies in 15 years will strongly depend on the quality of the cybersecurity. To make sure the data of our customers is safe, we have taken a couple of measures; you can read more about this on our special security page.
The normal way of logging in to our logistics software products is to log in with a username and password. The user gets a login screen, fills in his username and password and gets access to the software. In some cases it is possible for the user to save the login data in the web browser. The next time the user logs in, the data does not have to be filled in again. “This way of logging in is very useful and can save a lot of time, but it is not save.” says Toon Schilder, managing director at Adaption. “Cybercrime has increased considerably the last few years and old security methods are not as effective as they were. Recently we add the possibility to use two factor authentication to our logistics cloud products”.
By adding a new process for logging in it becomes harder for cybercriminals to get access to the software and all of her data. To log in with two factor authentication the user needs to install an app on their phone. The app is available for Android and Apple smartphones. At step one, the user needs to log in on the regular way by inserting username and password. After this the user gets a code on his smartphone. The code needs to be entered in the log in screen in the browser. The code needs to be entered within 30 seconds. “We especially chose to use TOTP, Time-base One-time Password, algorithm. This algorithm makes it possible to show a code for a limited time, 30 seconds on this case. This can be used by logging in. TOTP generates a safety key with a specific time lock.” According to Toon Schilder.
