Increasingly, Citrix users are accessing their
MetaFrame applications from anywhere with
just a Web browser, and the most common
way to identify users is with only a password.
But relying on passwords for security makes
your network easy to break into. Passwords
can be readily hacked using a wide variety of
attacks, including sniffing, brute force attacks,
dictionary attacks, personal information gath-
ering, or simply tricking users into revealing
their passwords. Industry experts estimate that
35 percent of corporate network passwords
can be hacked within five minutes.
Conventional wisdom says passwords
should be made more complicated (one 
government agency has a password policy
that’s 30 pages long!), but even the strictest
password policy can be undermined by a 
simple Post-it. The practical reality is that
complex passwords are harder to remember
and more likely to be written down, taped to
monitors, or hidden under keyboards. Or your
users may just forget their complex password,
causing your help desk costs to soar.

SafeWord for Citrix MetaFrame provides
strong authentication—a simple and effective
way to eliminate the risks of passwords for
access to your Citrix applications and VPNs.
To understand strong authentication,
think of your ATM card. When you with-
draw money from your bank you use a com-
bination of two security factors—something
you have (your card) and something you
know (your PIN). You probably wouldn’t
want your bank to allow withdrawals with
just one of these factors, yet many Citrix
deployments that protect extremely valuable
data, proprietary information, and mission-
critical applications are protected by only one
factor—a weak password.
SafeWord for Citrix MetaFrame delivers
the extra security needed with tokens that 
generate new passcodes for every user login.
Each user is assigned a token that can generate
millions of unique codes based on an internal
secret key. To log into Citrix, the user simply
pushes a button on the token to generate the
next one-time code, then enters this code
along with a short memorized PIN. 
The robust SafeWord authentication 
server verifies each token-generated passcode,
allowing access only to users with valid codes
and PINs. After being used once, a one-time
passcode is then useless, eliminating the risk
of outsiders stealing, copying, or reusing 
passwords. The combination of dynamic
codes and two-factor authentication provides
unbeatable security.
SafeWord tokens generate new
passcodes for every user login
