SecureAuth makes major updates to authentication solution

February 25, 2016 - 

SecureAuth Corporation has announced major updates to its SecureAuth IdP product, which provides authentication security, single sign-on (SSO) and user self-service tools together in a single solution.

The product provides adaptive access control, empowering organizations to determine identities with confidence. The solution also accommodates two-factor authentication, adaptive authentication, and offers an API to those implementing it. The product currently protects over five million identities at well-known companies in the banking, healthcare, government, travel, education and retail industries.

“Think of SecureAuth IdP as a bullet proof vest,” says Craig Lund, SecureAuth CEO. “It has multiple layers of protection, which creates a strong bulwark against cyber attacks. It’s harder to break through multiple layers of authentication compared to just one. In this case, one of those layers is created by behavioral biometric technology, which is unique in that it is influenced by social and psychological attributes. This is very secure, since it’s nearly impossible to copy or imitate somebody else’s behavior when using a device.”

The latest iteration of SecureAuth IdP, version 9.0, will include behavioral biometrics technology. The new technology can perform keystroke analysis and mouse movement analysis to determine a user’s legitimacy without the user noticing, and build a unique behavior-based profile based on each user device.

SecureAuth IdP version 9.0 will require multi-factor authentication (MFA) after failed log-ins, and is the first authentication solution to offer this capability as part of a comprehensive risk-based authentication process.

Along with using behavioral biometric technology to determine risk, SecureAuth IdP also uses device recognition, IP reputation, directory lookup, geo-location and geo-velocity to equip enterprises with the easiest and most secure form of authentication.

The updated product will also provide an identity management API to give more flexibility to customers that are creating their own applications, along with security information and event management (SIEM) integration for IBM QRadar and HP ArcSight, which assists customer correlate intrusion detection for increased accuracy when determining when and where a security breach may have occurred.

SecureAuth will offer live demonstrations of SecureAuth IdP version 9.0 at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, which starts next week. SecureAuth IdP version 9.0 will be available for sale in April.
