The Compelling Case for Risk-Based Adaptive Authentication

Making Digital Identities Secure and Compliant with Modern Authentication Technology

Consumers and employees are increasingly on-the-go, and that means that more transactions and more work originates from the mobile phone. Fraud and data loss rates have also been rising. A plethora of mobile-based digital identity technologies have entered the market over the last few years to help businesses and other organization meet these challenges.

Mobile biometrics are enabling businesses to move away from insecure and cumbersome passwords for authentication. Fingerprint, facial, voice, and behavioral biometrics are becoming more popular with both consumers and employees. These solutions have both benefits and risks.

While it is not only important to offer secure and user-friendly authentication it is also of paramount importance that mobile identities comply with organizational access policies. Therefore, reliable digital identities and strong authentication is the foundation for securing critical processes in government, finance and most enterprise verticals.

Risk-based adaptive authentication can work in conjunction with mobile identity solutions to evaluate a variety of risk factors and choose appropriate authentication and authorization challenges to users, based on customer-configurable policies.

In this webinar you will learn about:
