Brunswick County REALTORS Activate Rapattoni Secure Logon
Simi Valley, CA – Rapattoni Corp. announced that the Brunswick County Assn. of REALTORS® has installed the Rapattoni Secure Logon authentication service with Single Sign-On (SSO) for its multiple listing service. Implementation and token distribution to the MLS’s more than 1,600 real estate professionals in Brunswick County, NC, is currently taking place.
The Brunswick County association operates the full suite of Rapattoni products following this deployment. Rapattoni is providing a complete service package: delivery, training, and customer support from a single, unified call center.
"Rapattoni’s staff are consummate professionals," said Susan Pike, executive officer of the Brunswick County Assn. of REALTORS®. "They handled our Secure Logon installation very efficiently, and took us through the design, planning, training and implementation steps quickly. The new service was an easy transition for our members, and we’re already feeling the benefits."
The Rapattoni Secure Logon service increases data security by ensuring that only authorized users can access the MLS. During logon, users must provide "two-factor authentication" — their ID and password (something they know), and the code displayed on their security token at that moment (something they have). The combination of the user’s password and the correct tokencode provides a much more reliable level of user authentication than reusable passwords alone. Since each token is associated with a specific user, it eliminates the potential for account sharing and ID theft, and ensures that only authorized users can enter the MLS site.
Soon the association’s various online services will be connected through Rapattoni’s included Single Sign-On (SSO) feature for member convenience. SSO will enable members to log on once and then access multiple authorized sites without requiring separate logons.
Andy Rapattoni, president and CEO, said, "We work hard to develop technology that is user-friendly and intuitive. Our innovative data-security solutions offer additional benefits along with increased security, and are quickly setting the standard in the real estate industry."
