Connected Security Alliance
We all know breaches are on the rise. In 2016 alone, over 4,100 were reported globally – with many more never reported or even detected. These intrusions are costing enterprises billions of dollars in financial harm and irreparable damage to their corporate brands. Enterprises deploy security point solutions in the hopes of stopping a data breach and it’s not working!

Average cost of a breach
Once attackers gain access (usually with valid user credentials) they gain a foothold and can sit silent and undetected for weeks if not months, waiting to inflict damage.
The Solution: It's Connected
SecureAuth initiated the Connected Security Alliance to bring together best of breed vendors that address every step of the breach lifecycle to protect your data and detect potential attackers before they do damage. More than a collection of point products, Connected Security Alliance solutions are truly interoperable and work together to solve the data breach problem. Security teams need not be overwhelmed with multiple solutions from multiple vendors – the Connected Security Alliance takes best of breed solutions for every step of the breach life cycle to create a reference architecture that works.
The Benefits of a Connected Approach:
- Truly Integrated Framework: All solutions are required to pass rigorous interoperability testing to ensure they are compatible. The result is a reference architecture and documentation that can help customers implement quickly and painlessly.
- Actionable Intelligence: By providing multiple datasets to determine risk or evidence of the attack, Alliance products can increase the odds of detecting a breach before it happens.
- Foundation of Identity: With the increase in breaches, traditional perimeter security is failing due to the use of valid, yet compromised user credentials. Alliance members leverage identity-context to detect and protect against bad actors.
- Frictionless to the user: Adding adaptive authentication doesn’t mean adding a burden to your existing users. Adaptive (risk-based) authentication removes the burden from the user with minimal impact to the user experience.
Once seen as a drain on corporate resources and a driver for meeting compliance standards, cybersecurity has since become a business imperative. While it now tops the executive management agenda, not all solutions adequately address the attack lifecycle. The formation of the Connected Security Alliance means security teams need not be overwhelmed with multiple vendors providing disparate offerings. Instead, organizations can rest assured that they have not one, but multiple security solutions backing them as they detect, respond to and remediate threats.

Partners Dedicated to Solving the Data Breach Problem:
SecureAuth integrates with SailPoint IdentityIQ as a source of enhanced context to determine identities with confidence. SecureAuth queries SailPoint’s identity risk score during authentication to determine whether to allow, step-up or deny access. Read the solution brief.
CyberArk Privileged Account Security offers seamless integration with SecureAuth IdP’s adaptive and multi-factor authentication to ensure that only authorized users can access their privileged accounts, doing so with minimal user friction. Read the solution brief.
SecureAuth leverages Exabeam’s User Behavioral Analytics as an additional source of context for risk-based (adaptive) authentication. Anomalies in user behavior identified by Exabeam can trigger step up authentication to detect and protect against insider threats. Read the solution brief.
SecureAuth IdP integrates with Palo Alto Networks GlobalProtect through Radius Server to provide an advanced user authentication solution that analyzes multiple factors to determine the legitimacy of every login attempt and thwart attacks in progress. Read the Solution Brief.

SecureAuth Joins Expanded Identity Defined Security Alliance
SecureAuth is excited to be a part of the expanded Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), a forum for thought leadership, customer validation and education, industry supported use cases and a technology showcase, that supports redefining the approach to cyber security based on identity. Membership in the IDSA is open to end customers, technology vendors and solution providers that are committed to the vision of an identity centric approach to security.
“At SecureAuth, we believe a connected approach to security is the best way to reduce the white space between point security products and keep our customers' applications and data safe. Now as part of the IDSA, we look forward to expanding SecureAuth’s adaptive access control to a larger group of cybersecurity solution providers, helping prevent the misuse of compromised credentials and delivering even more value to our customers.” – Mike Desai, Senior Vice president of Corporate Development, SecureAuth.
