SecureAuth, a provider of identity enforcement technology for the enterprise, has launched SecureAuth IdP 7.0, an identity access management software that uses an heuristics approach to identify, authenticate and assert access to mobile devices and apps.
The solution is designed to address organizations’ need for stronger mobile security when managing the growing number of bring your own devices (BYOD) and simplifies the login and access process for employees who use multiple devices at work including desktops, tablets and smartphones.
“BYOD is risky business for the enterprise because it opens additional access points for hackers and malware,” said commented Garret Grajek, chief technology officer at SecureAuth.
Phillip Redman, VP distinguished analyst at Gartner research firm stated, “Bring your own device is adding complexity to IT departments, including assessing the need for additional endpoint data protection and backup capabilities. IT managers must develop and deploy policies to ensure data security without compromising user productivity.”
SecureAuth IdP 7.0 uses up to 14 different authentication options, such as variations to HTTP headers, IP address, browser specifications and user data storage, to determine a user’s unique identity with a specific device. Strength and criteria are set by IT administration and the software intelligently problem solves, using a heuristics approach, to authenticate the user, and grant access and login to the authorized mobile apps. A simplified one-time registration workflow allows users a secured access across multiple devices.
The solution is currently available and works with all mobile platforms including iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry.
