Authentication Solutions for Government

DigitalPersona Composite Authentication

Providing identity assurance for government institutions

The Challenge

Government organizations are prime targets for espionage and cybercrime, and poor access controls are often to blame. Public-private partnerships have made the idea of the traditional user obsolete as private contractors, service integrators and other third parties regularly access government systems. The importance of assuring the identities of all users accessing critical government resources has never been higher.

The Solution

Government organizations require authentication solutions that prioritize accessibility and ease of use for a diverse population of users. Government organizations are not monolithic, and neither are their authentication needs. They require an array of authentication factors – such as fingerprint biometrics, CAC/PIV cards, one-time passwords, mobile push and more – that support a wide variety of users and use cases. And they need to manage access to all resources through a single management platform.
