SecurID enhancements enable organizations to strategize for the future of IAM
SecurID has joined Identverse to share new product enhancements, information and resources that will enable organizations to strategize for the future of Identity and Access Management (IAM).
“With COVID-19 vaccination rates varying from state to state and country to country, organizations around the world are preparing for the next phase of their identity journey: at Identivere 2021, SecurID experts will share how cloud deployments, hybrid operations and frictionless user experiences will shape the future of identity and how companies should strategize for these emerging trends, ”said Dave Taku, product manager, SecurID.
Across industries, organizations are working on new priorities to authenticate remote workers, prevent ransomware and other sophisticated cyber threats, and invest in solutions that maintain business continuity. As these new cybersecurity challenges emerge, CISOs and CTOs also need to ensure convenient and frictionless access to organizational resources.
Identiverse 2021 comes at an important time for the cybersecurity community as companies strive to prepare long-term strategies and empower remote workers. SecurID has helped companies adapt to these new trends and:
Speed up cloud authentication: By combining authentication and governance in the cloud, organizations can recoup the costs associated with managing and maintaining their IAM deployment, securing operations, and simplifying access. The SecurID access management platform provides businesses with a unique, professional-grade, scalable and secure way to account for employees, customers and suppliers: in the last quarter, the service’s daily cloud authentications increased by 338 % compared to the same period last year. .
This summer, SecurID will begin deploying SecurID Governance & Lifecycle Cloud, a comprehensive governance and lifecycle solution as a managed service. The solution, which CRN recently named one of the most popular cloud security products at the RSA conference, will provide organizations with complete mastery and control over their identity needs and will automatically provide and remove the access, thereby helping to prevent hackers from exploiting unused legacy accounts such as in the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack.
Adapt to hybrid work: To be successful in a world of work wherever you are, businesses need adaptive solutions that secure operations while maintaining employee productivity. SecurID helps businesses move towards hybrid environments: its cloud authentication technology exceeded 99.99% uptime in all geographies in 2020.
This reliability will extend to the new SID700 tokens, which will be deployed and managed from the cloud and allow organizations with cloud-based, on-premises and mixed user pools to securely authenticate from any location. in law. Additionally, SecurID Governance & Lifecycle Cloud will provide the right people with the right resources for the right reasons, enabling employees to stay productive, wherever they are.
Ensure frictionless convenience: Today, more employees than ever before are working within the confines of IT control: Remote working has virtually erased the perimeter of the network, making it more critical than ever to verify that users are who they claim to be before. ‘to access. The best way to verify users is to provide them with a convenient authentication service that works on their devices. This is why the new SecurID app for iOS and Android is so timely: its simple, intuitive and accessible technology displays the one-time passcode and actions that users need to securely access the resources of the organization and manage their account.
The mobile app is designed using the same software development kit (SDK) that SecurID will deploy later this summer: The SecurID SDK will allow businesses to use their existing applications as SecurID multi-factor authenticators, offering easy ways for end users to authenticate into applications they already know.
To be effective, Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) must align with existing business environments – they must look, feel and work with the core services of any business. The SecurID SDK will allow organizations to create their own customizable MFA authentication experience with their company logo and branding, integrating seamlessly with existing applications.
