This past year has been filled with story upon story of security leaks and breaches. In looking at the individual cases, many of these events potentially could have been avoided with the use of stronger access controls and the use of industry proven strong authentication technology. So the real question is:
Do you need stronger security for network access? Are you concerned about the weakness of password based access? Are you tired of the cost of password management?
Today’s workers are more on the move than ever before and the trend towards greater mobility is only increasing. Workers expect to be able to access company resources anytime, from anywhere using multiple devices. But while mobility can increase productivity, it also introduces a significant security risk. With numerous potential entry points into the network, the new challenge for IT security professionals is balancing security with convenience.
With advanced persistent threats (APT) becoming more prevalent, companies of all sizes need to take a serious look at the security protecting access to data resources. Username and password is no longer sufficient to protect access to one of the most important aspects of your business – your company’s internal information.
This clearly shows the need for stronger access control methods to secure all access points into the network. Strong authentication adds layers of identity verification to ensure only authorized users gain network access through a variety of easy-to-use form factors that meet business requirements and ensure user adoption.
