The Offline Temporary Password (OTP) feature is another valuable feature for Gulf Insurance Group, allowing administrators to generate a password that grants temporary unrestricted access to a specific device, computer, or user. These passwords can be requested by users with a justification and their validity period ranges between 30 minutes and 30 days.

“With Endpoint Protector, end users can easily request media access, and needed information will be passed to the IT team with the lowest effort from both sides,” Jamali added. “Overall, our end users are much more satisfied with Endpoint Protector than with our old solution.”
