Veridium CEO discusses MFA at Gartner IAM Summit

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

On Monday evening Veridium CEO James Stickland led a session titled “How to Free Your Organization of Passwords with MFA,” at the Gartner Identity and Access Management (IAM) Summit 2018 in Las Vegas.

The summit brings together IT security and risk leaders to provide a comprehensive view of today’s IAM journey toward effective workplace and consumer IAM.

The session Stickland led shared a multi-national bank’s experience eliminating passwords and implementing strong multi-factor authentication for Microsoft environments. The case study described the benefits of using Veridium’s platform with mobile biometrics including: reducing costs; simplifying UX while increasing security; creating consistent login experiences in or out of the office, and; integration to the bank’s mobile app.

“Breaches are a daily occurrence and 2FA isn’t slowing that down,” explains Stickland. “As a result, CIOs and other corporate executives are increasingly turning to Zero Trust networks as the pressure to protect enterprise systems and data mounts. By binding biometrics – unique traits or behavioral characteristics – with a mobile phone, Veridium creates a Zero Trust architecture that provides a convenient yet secure experience.”

In October Veridium announced record third-quarter results for its multi-factor biometric authentication platform.
