Making Authentication More Secure With Third-Party CIAM Solutions
Despite compromised passwords being the leading cause of data breaches, most online businesses still rely on solely using passwords for logins. While getting rid of password authentication is desirable from a security standpoint, organizations fear that it is a costly endeavor that can also affect user experience.
As many companies do not have the technical resources or the budget to overhaul their login and authentication systems entirely, third-party applications for CIAM solutions are becoming increasingly attractive. CIAM systems usually offer a variety of authentication mechanisms, including MFA or risk-adaptive authentication. In addition to that, they also provide consumer profiling and consent management options.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- Why getting rid of password authentication is crucial for security
- How businesses can be supported in the shift to other forms of authentication
- How authentication processes can be changed to benefit the user experience
- Why it makes sense to use third-party CIAM solutions
In the first part, John Tolbert, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will look at what consumers want and what businesses need in terms of authentication and other features for CIAM solutions.
In the second part, Deepak Gupta, CTO of LoginRadius, will explain why he recommends assessing and revamping the current authentication system to a modernized infrastructure that can both meet the growing customer expectations while achieving your business goals

Nearly all high-impact cyberattacks have a phase in which the attacker must conduct lateral movement from their initial landing point to their ultimate target. To do this, the attacker needs a combination of credentials and available connections between one system and another. This is the evasive process of “living off the land” using the connectivity native to the organization.
Blockchain is still on everyone’s lips and the 2019 can be the year when large enterprises finally embrace the distributed ledger technology. KuppingerCole's inaugural blockchain-themed event will go beyond the hype and will present you real use cases and applications for your enterprise. Blockchain Enterprise Days (#BeDays19) will take place on September 18-19, 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany.
