There are 14.9 billion raw identity records circulating in the Web’s underground communities—a 71% increase over the previous year.1 Many of these records contain usernames, passwords and other sensitive credential information. The use of stolen credentials has been an underlying cause of nearly one-fourth of all organizational breaches and more than 43,000 successful accesses via stolen credentials. Statistics like these show why organizations need to attain a higher level of identity assurance. Consequently, many organizations are moving toward adopting a Zero Trust security model.
At the perimeter of network security is Identity and Access Management (IAM). If the ability to scale an IAM program due to growth or acquisition is impractical, an organization’s security and financial resources become strained putting pressure directly on IT executives and staff. Scalability and flexibility are fundamentals of both on-premises and cloud-based IAM solutions. Or are they? This webinar will consider these issues and look inside our cloud federation and single sign-on solution offering, The OptimalCloud™. We will also review the following: Criteria for choosing an IAM solution Why move to the cloud – Cloud vs. On-Premise Comparison What exactly is The OptimalCloud The OptimalCloud – Competitive Comparison
Frictionless authentication by the way you type? Yes it’s true. Learn how this and other MFA solutions are changing the login landscape. Topics include: New Apps, New Threats, Same Authentication What are Ineffective Passwords? MFA Tipping Points Adaptive Access Control What is Behavioral Biometrics?
CIOs that are under pressure to bring two companies’ IT systems and applications together after a merger or acquisition can unify their directory services quickly and inexpensively with a Virtual Identity Server. This paper looks at three of the leading approaches to bridging disparate sets of directory services into one seamless directory following a merger or acquisition. Conversely, we’ll look at the aspect of a divestiture, in which one company must entirely split out from another. Here, too, directory services play a role in a clean and quick divestiture or spin-off.
White Paper Typing Biometrics and Other Multi-Factor Authentication Methods: When Passwords Are Not Enough
81% of data breaches are from weak, default or stolen passwords. Leveraging MFA when it’s offered lessens the attack vector for digital identity impersonation attempts. This paper looks at existing MFA options, including biometric typing technology, examines decision factors for MFA and discusses the difference between various authentication methodologies.
