Reston, VA (PRWEB) January 30, 2014

DNS Made Easy, the leading provider of enterprise IP Anycast Managed DNS services, announces more than 5,000 users have successfully started using their two-factor authentication, which was released late 2013. This security process involves two stages to verify the identity a user before accessing an account.

This new security feature is aimed at protecting our customers from unauthorized access to their private account information.

Security is at the forefront of any online service today due to internet-based attacks, which are becoming more frequent as well as more sophisticated. DNS Made Easy joins Apple and Microsoft with its recent release of two-factor support. Some major technology providers such as Google and Facebook have had this two-factor authentication support in place since 2011. While it is not new technology, it is not used by most DNS providers, leaving information, websites and e-mail exchanges vulnerable to hacks.

DNS Made Easy had a successful response to the recently launched support for two-factor authentication. DNS Made Easy’s two-factor authentication solution makes use of smart phone and authentication application to serve the function of the traditional “token.” The client then provides a time-based authentication code in conjunction with the account authentication credentials for a successful login.

After a successful and problem-free launch, DNS Made Easy’s developmental team states more than 5,000 users enabled the feature during its first month in operation without any major issues. While this is typically considered to be a high volume for a feature release during the first month, DNS Made Easy’s engineers credit a security conscious client base as well as vigorous usability testing for the success.
