How Deploying MFA Increases Safety and Convenience Alike
The majority of security breaches and attacks can be traced back to stolen and compromised passwords. Mobile devices are often particularly vulnerable because many users tend to avoid long passwords and special characters.
Providers of security solutions have realized this and are coming up with different models of multi-factor authentication (MFA). The biometric approach is arguably among the safest methods because it relies on unique biological characteristics such as the face, iris or fingerprints. Apart from the security aspect, password-less authentication also serves convenience in user experience and can save costs by eliminating support request.
In this webinar you will find out:
- Why passwords are just not secure enough anymore
- How they can be replaced by multi-factor authentication
- What makes biometric solutions preferable
- Why user experience will also benefit from MFA
KuppingerCole Principal Analyst Martin Kuppinger will talk about the challenges traditional authentication models face in a world where users have multiple digital identities on different devices.
Gregory Guglielmetti, Head of Product Management NEVIS | AdNovum Informatik AG, will then elaborate on why a transition to MFA serves not only security but also user experience and can reduce costs.
Digitalization drives innovation in the economy and in society. User-friendliness, flexibility, and identity protection are requirements any future-oriented security solution needs to meet. Secure and trusted identities are playing an increasingly important role in digitalization. In addition, a central governance and security infrastructure is needed for an effective and agile digital offering.
The NEVIS Security Suite meets all the requirements of a secure, scalable, and modular identity and access management solution. The NEVIS Security Suite, the security solution of the Swiss software company AdNovum, has been protecting bank, insurance and government portals for more than 20 years. Initially designed for e-banking, NEVIS protects more than 80% of all Swiss e-banking transactions.
The Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) market continues to develop with a significant push from organizations looking to adopt cloud-based delivery of security services including IAM. While IDaaS Access Management solutions, providing SSO (Single Sign-On) for the users and access to a variety of services are already established, IDaaS IGA is not as widely used yet. However, shifting IGA (Identity Governance and Administration) capabilities, e.g. Identity Lifecycle Management and Access Governance, to the cloud might provide significant benefits regarding time and cost of deploying and operating IGA.
Come to the place where the Digital Transformation is happening. The European Identity & Cloud Conference, held from May 12-15, 2020, offers a mixture of best practice discussions, visionary presentations, and networking opportunities with a future-oriented community. More than 800 thought leaders, leading vendors, analysts, executives, and end-users get together in Munich to be inspired by a list of world-class speakers.
