Identity and access management (IAM) solutions allow businesses to meet the evolving needs around cloud applications and mobile devices by enabling secure access to online resources and protecting the digital interactions of employees, partners, and customers.
One-time password authentication products generate highly secure one-time passwords ensuring that only properly authenticated users are authorised to access to critical applications and data.
Whether located in the cloud, the corporate data centre, or virtual environments, there's a broad range of authentication methods and form factors to secure access to any application from any device.
Studies show employees use three or more different devices for work daily and 89% of mobile users will access business applications using their personal devices. The rapid increase in mobile usage has many IT teams scrambling to get enterprise mobile security in line with current corporate standards.
It is no longer enough for you to secure online access using only a username and password. Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) gets around this problem by requiring an additional piece of information that only the intended user can supply. This additional security level ranges in nature from a secret word, a code, or a physical token held only by the user, making it much more difficult for third parties to gain unauthorised access. 2FA is easy to implement and should be considered an essential practise for modern businesses.
All authentication methods are based on providing the legitimate user with a method for proving his or her identity. Such “proof” can involve different form factors, such as something only the user knows (like a password) or something only the user has (like an external piece of hardware or the user’s biometric information). It could also be something that the user is, such as unique physical attributes, for example, a fingerprint or retinal scan.
