FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF HID WORKFORCEID™ AUTHENTICATION SOLUTION
“A person’s identity – says Julian Lovelock, VP Global Business Segment, IAM, with HID Global – has become the new security perimeter in a hybrid workplace that now extends from home to the office and everywhere in between. The addition of multi-factor authentication to the HID WorkforceID platform advances our vision of a unified and flexible approach to identity and access management for an organization’s employees, partners and contractors. This is the next step in providing a suite of applications that manage digital and physical identity credentials through one convenient cloud platform”.
“Pivotal in HID’s overall multi-factor authentication portfolio – they add from HID Global – the HID® WorkforceID Authentication solution enables organizations to extend a streamlined, simple and secure login experience to every user and application throughout today’s diverse and dynamic enterprise environment. It easily integrates with Microsoft’s on-premise Active Directory (AD) or cloud-based Azure AD. This platform is positioned within the environment to enable:
• Simplified deployment and administration: Easy integration with cloud-based, on-premise, or hybrid legacy applications, as well as existing enterprise technology including Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) for remote login.
• Multiple authentication factors: HID® ActivIDTM one time password tokens and security keys, smart cards, and the HID® Approve™ mobile app that enables users to authenticate to applications and deny fraudulent login attempts via their phone.
• Standards-based security: ISO 27001 standards, SOC2-certified, and EU GDPR-compliant.
• Intuitive user experience: Featuring self-service tasks for setting up authentication methods.
The WorkforceID Authentication solution extends HID’s broader authentication ecosystem that includes its comprehensive credential offering and WorkforceID Digital Credential Manager for easily managing workforce authenticators used for both physical and digital access”, they conclude.
HID Global was recently recognized as the overall top challenger in the KuppingerCole Leadership Compass for Enterprise Authentication Solutions report and included as a market leader in its market leadership category.
