New Plugin Available: Two-Factor Authentication

Good news, after reciving many requests for a multi-factor authentication plugin for Roundcube we have finally released one. Our 2FA plugin is the first in a series of webmail security pluigns we are developing to make your webmail communications more secure. 

You can get your copy of the 2FA plugin here: Two-Factor Authentication

Adding the Two Factor Authentication to your webmail is an important step to secure your email box from hackers. The 2FA plugin gives your entire Roundcube webmail setup that extra layer of privacy & security. Once installed all email accounts using Roundcube will have multi-factor authentication options, keeping your emails safe from unwanted intruders. This plugin is designed for companies with strict security mandates and includes all major two-factor authentication options.

We added not just one authentication factor but 4 different options. You can choose to use 1 or more as a backup. The plugin also works with the USB Yubikey hardware authentication. Other options include, mobile app authentication which is compatible with the most popular TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) apps you can find in the app store such as Google and Microsoft authenticator. 

Two-Factor authentication through text messages are also available as an option; a security feature many will be used to using with a host of applicaitons already. The text messages are editable from a config file giving administrators the ability to add custom messages or brand it for their institution. 

The plugin is simple to install however, if you prefer a non-install option, 2FA is offered to our Tier-1 and above Atlas Cloud customers at no extra cost or hassle. Just login to the Atlas dashboard and click the enable button to start using it. Don't have Atlas yet? Get started for free here.
