Will provide insights on securing digital identities with invisible MFA for a passwordless continuous authentication experience
IRVINE, CA – March 29, 2023 — SecureAuth, a leader in access management and authentication, today announced that it is a gold sponsor for the third annual ‘Identity Management Day,’ an annual awareness event that will take place on April 11, 2023. Additionally, Donovan Blaylock II, Director of Solutions Engineering will be presenting “MFA is so 80s: Continuous Authentication for Invisible MFA” at 9:45 am PT/12:45 pm ET at the virtual conference.
“As the digital universe evolves and expands, securing digital identities is more critical than ever, and we are thrilled to provide a vision to help prevent attacks at the third annual Identity Management Day,” stated Paul Trulove, CEO of SecureAuth. “We applaud the work of the Identity Defined Security Alliance and the National Cybersecurity Alliance for bringing more attention to the importance of identity for both enterprises and consumers. We are committed to innovation to ensure organizations have a frictionless experience and passwordless continuous authentication for their users.”
Founded by the Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) and supported by the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA), the mission of Identity Management Day is to educate business leaders, IT decision makers and the public on the importance of identity management. Cybersecurity incidents involving compromised credentials continue to be the most common cause of a data breach for enterprises, and account takeover for individuals. The need to secure our digital identities remains one of the most urgent tasks facing our digital ecosystem.
Arculix by SecureAuth delivers a risk-based continuous authentication platform powered by a data science approach to security. Its advanced adaptive risk-engine is backed by patented artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide passwordless continuous authentication for applications, systems and endpoints. Arculix establishes a level of assurance (LOA) score via the risk engine starting prior to the initial login to an endpoint and continuously adjusts the LOA score throughout the user’s journey to their applications. Arculix is the only authentication solution in the industry that provides pre-authorization, at-authorization, and post-authorization capabilities. This approach enables continuous invisible MFA to happen behind the scenes and greatly reduces the number of static policy rules implemented and maintained by security staff.
“Cybersecurity incidents involving compromised credentials continue to be the most common cause of a data breach for enterprises, and account takeover for individuals,” stated Jeff Reich, Executive Director of IDSA. “According to a recent study, 84% of organizations have suffered an identity-related breach in the last year, with 78% reporting a direct impact on the business. While 22% of US households have been a victim of account takeover, with an average financial loss of $12,000. Identity Management Day is an opportunity for all of us to evaluate our role in protecting our digital ecosystem. Whether acting as consumers or employees or partners, our online behaviors matter and we need to #BeIdentitySmart every day.”
