- 1 additional managed identity
Advanced Authentication fits into your environment to increase the security of your organization's identity and access procedures. Each day, modern workers must access multiple applications, often on many different platforms. For every application, users need to remember a unique username and password. Soon they start writing down passwords - and that is just one of the security issues created by modern work habits. The growth of borderless networks means that your users may not be at a tangible location on a known device anymore. Authentication for the modern enterprise needs to somehow become both more secure and easier for users. Advanced authentication, also known as multi-factor authentication, is one way to increase security. It places a strong security layer between your corporate assets and unproven entities by requiring multiple kinds of credentials. These credentials might include who you are, what you know or what you have. For example: security questions are something you know and a proximity card is an example of something that you have. A fingerprint is something you are. Advanced Authentication takes advantage of all these kinds of credentials. When combined with single sign-on technology in the right solution, it has the potential to solve modern organizations' problems.
