Two-factor authentication is not enough. It causes user disruption, often makes you choose between security and usability, and many popular methods can be bypassed by attackers. Find out why it is time to move beyond two-factor authentication with Adaptive Authentication. Better security than two-factor authentication, but without hassle for users and only contextual risk checking if necessary.
Adaptive Authentication provides world-class security without impacting usability. That’s because risk checks are done without users even being aware of it — and multi-factor authentication is applied only if risks are detected. Like layers in a bulletproof vest, SecureAuth IdP analyzes multiple factors to determine the legitimacy of every login attempt, thwart attacks in-process, and prevent your organization from becoming the next breach headline. By using these risk checks we can be 3.000 times more secure than two-factor authentication (2FA) alone.
The SecureAuth Threat Service is a combination of multiple threat intelligence, information and blacklisted IP addresses for the industry’s most advanced protection from today’s threats including APT, Cyber Crime, Hacktivism as well as anonymous proxies and anonymity networks, such as Tor. During authentication, SecureAuth IdP combines the information from the SecureAuth Threat Service with other risk factors, including IP whitelists and blacklists, device recognition data, group membership and other user attributes from a directory lookup, geo-location and geo-velocity data, and user behavior to provide the world’s most adaptive yet secure access control and protection available.
Multi-factor authentication from SecureAuth IdP allows you to take something a user knows – username and password – and combine it with something that the user has – phone, email, device, etc. – to ensure that access is granted securely and appropriately. SecureAuth IdP obtains identity credentials for every attempted access, verifies the identity against a known data store and then serves up the identity details to service providers or applications in an agreed upon format. Regardless of the application platform the control of the identity verification process is in your hands with 25+ authentication methods available.
Without strong authentication capabilities in front, SSO actually creates identity risk by becoming a single point of failure, which is why compromised user credentials is a new preferred attack vector for cyberattacks. SecureAuth IdP Single Sign-On places strong authentication in front of centralized access, then streamlines secure access into all applications and resources with one set of credentials, no matter if they are cloud, mobile, web or VPN resources. The result is a clean experience without tedious login procedures and high friction workflows, keeping your employees, business partners, and customers happy.
Putting users in control without losing control. SecureAuth IdP has several self-service features designed with users in mind:
- allowing users to reset passwords without involving the Help Desk
- enabling users to unlock their own accounts
- permitting self-enrollment of devices and tokens
- facilitating provisioning by enabling users to add their own information like telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, knowledge-based questions/answers, and more.
Additionally, the IdP enables security administrators to easily and instantly revoke a user’s authentication or device registration to ensure security no matter the circumstance.
SecureAuth can remove the password altogether, meaning no more lost or stolen passwords, no more help-desk calls for passwords resets, and no more worrying about phished or stolen credentials. The technology is available to move away from the flawed and outdated 2FA authentication method. Are you ready to eliminate the password?
Central Identity Management
With Secure Idp you can consolidate technology in one environment and centralize access controls. For cloud, enterprise applications, VPN and mobile apps. Makes life easier for users and admins by reducing the number of disparate systems and policies. No longer managing users in multiple external and internal applications. Over time legacy and disparate technology become overly expensive to maintain and inadequate to meet organizational needs, with SecureAuth you can consolidate identity and access management solutions to the industry’s most flexible and modern approach, and save cost.
