Alpha Serve and Nitrokey have announced a new strategic partnership. This cooperation intends to offer value to users, providing a sophisticated solution for secure two-factor authentication (2FA). Furthermore, this working collaboration will see both parties realize technological benefits, which, in turn, will result in more advanced software and hardware for users.
Alpha Serve, a software development company and Atlassian marketplace vendor, has a broad list of security applications in its portfolio. These apps allow for the use of FIDO U2F devices as a second factor of authentication in various Atlassian tools including Jira, Confluence, Bamboo, Bitbucket, and Crowd.
Nitrokey, a German hardware producer, develops various devices enabling two-factor authentication, encrypted data storage, email encryption, key management, and server administration. One of their products is the Nitrokey FIDO U2F, which safeguards user accounts from breaches and identity theft by cybercriminals. It features excellent hardware encryption, thanks to being open source. High security requires open source as its transparency protects against backdoors.
Thanks to this partnership, Alpha Serve customers will obtain additional benefits for the implemented security solutions from special offers on purchasing Nitrokey devices.“ says an Alpha Serve representative. „Furthermore, Nitrokey will give a promotion code to Alpha Serve customers that will allow them to order a trial Nitrokey to be returned after 30 days. Users will be able to get the device at the Nitrokey online shop for free upon the promo code.“
This partnership between Alpha Serve and Nitrokey will allow advanced secure authentication in Atlassian tools and will benefit the cyber protection of users. Going into the future, this working collaboration is expected to address all the emerging cybersecurity issues that people face nowadays. For example, FIDO2 passwordless authentication will make a huge difference by reconciling security and usability.
