Solving New Authentication Challenges While Finding Parity Between User Experience and Security
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
In an increasingly hostile world, where you don't know who to trust, companies still need to be able to deliver trusted, personalized experiences for users, without making them jump through hoops to prove who they are.
Unfortunately, most businesses are making the fundamental mistake when it comes to authentication and are thinking inside-out, but by thinking outside-in, they would automatically put the Customer first. Until now, strong (and not so strong) authentication to services seems to have been driven by an inside-out way of thinking. The institutions think about what works best for them: what fits into their infrastructure; what is the cheapest yet compliant approach? For customers, this means that they must use what their service provider offers to them.
Companies must also be aware of insider risks and by implementing a Zero Trust approach of ‘never trust, always verify’, they can better secure the access to their assets.
In this KuppingerCole webinar, we will address the following
- What are the changing requirements for authentication
- How to balance flexibility, adaptiveness and security in Access Management
- How companies can deliver a frictionless and riskless customer experience
In the first part of this webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Co-Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will look at the changing requirements for authentication, in the context of trends such as the Digital Transformation and Zero Trust. He will outline where authentication comes into play and why we need to be both flexible and adaptive as well as secure and risk-conscious when authenticating. Furthermore, he will look at how these changes with app-based access and in the world of IoT, in contrast to interactive authentication at websites.
In the second part, Andy Hall, Director of Product Management at ForgeRock, will present his perspective on how to make Identity and Access Management more agile and fine-grained. IAM must allow for decisions about the access of customers/consumers, employees, partners and billions of things/devices dynamically and in real time. Andy will focus in solving these challenges. He will show how Intelligent Authentication and Authentication trees meet these requirements and present live demos during the webinar.

When it comes to identity management many companies depend heavily on Microsoft Active Directory (AD). This high degree of dependency on one service can become a problem when this service faces an outage. Also, respective of the requirements companies have, all services have certain limitations which are sometimes necessary to overcome. Many cyberattacks are perpetrated via staff endpoint devices (computers, smartphones or even printers). This necessitates a fine-mesh risk management approach with a centralized solution, called Identity Fabric at KuppingerCole.
