SecureAuth Presents: Addressing the business impacts of identity sprawl with adaptive authentication
Enterprises and their identities are moving beyond traditional boundaries in terms of devices, locations, and hours. As a result, security teams are struggling to protect their assets from threats that target users and their access to systems. These attacks include stealing credentials, mimicking behaviors, and cloning devices that circumvent security measures to gain unauthorized access to systems. This has become even more of an issue as enterprises and users manage hundreds of identities across applications, social networks, devices and more.
Identity sprawl is more difficult to contain than ever. Yet, various steps can be taken to address this within the enterprise, allowing legitimate users access to systems while keeping out bad actors. Teams can fully restrict access from unknown or unverified devices, or even limiting access to applications. However, this hampers productivity.
What's needed is a way to determine where, when and how the user is logging in, and if there is an apparent discrepancy – even slightly different than expected – and then require additional steps without compromising security. This presentation will discuss how advances in adaptive authentication – including machine learning – can help enterprises secure all identities everywhere.
