Optimal IdM Designated as Leader on GigaOm Radar for Multifactor Authentication

New MFA research report highlights user experience and passwordless authentication option from Optimal IdM 

Tampa, FL, September 13, 2022 – Optimal IdM, a leading provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, is pleased to be named a Leader in the new Radar Report on Multifactor Authentication from GigaOm, an industry leading research and analyst firm.


“We are happy to be listed at the top of the class in this latest report on MFA vendors,” said Mike Brengs, Managing Partner and CRO of Optimal IdM. He continued, “Our MFA offering is designed to provide a smooth user experience and the addition of our Optimal Authenticator app does just that. We believe proper security shouldn’t cost extra, so that’s why we include MFA with all of our OptimalCloud offerings.”


The OptimalCloud platform, supports multiple authentication methods, including push notifications via the proprietary Optimal Authenticator app, which works for Android, Windows, and iOS. Other authentication methods include FIDO2 devices, RADIUS, OTP and TOTP, SMS, and security questions.


A distinguishing feature of the OptimalCloud is the integration with TypingDNA, a solution that analyzes and learns typing pattern behavior. This feature is a key enabler for a smooth user experience and passwordless authentication. After the solution successfully learns a user’s typing pattern, a user can log into an IT resource by typing in only their username or email address.


For policy management, the OptimalCloud allows the definition of MFA requirements based on organizational membership or on access to specific applications. Administrators can also implement adaptive MFA by combining dynamic and static policies such as user behavior, device, and location.
