Crossmatch Announces DigitalPersona Composite Authentication
Crossmatch, a provider of security and identity management solutions, announced the next step in its secure enterprise authentication – Composite Authentication.
In its announcement, the company said, “Composite Authentication goes beyond traditional 2FA and MFA offerings to deliver the optimal mix of factors which enable risk-based policies that adapt to today’s dynamic threat environment. This approach to authentication secures all systems and applications in an increasingly complex IT environment marked by proliferating endpoints, applications and new service delivery models.”
“Composite Authentication represents what is next for secure authentication,” said Lance Roncalli, Crossmatch senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Our proven DigitalPersona authentication platform embodies these real-world security requirements. We close the gaps left by traditional authentication solutions, while covering on premise, legacy and cloud applications with an easy to deploy and use solution for any user, anywhere and at any moment.”
“Organizations worldwide continue to be plagued by a relentless onslaught of cyber attacks and ensuing data breaches, most of which are due to compromised credentials,” the company said,, noting, ‘Never before has the need for a new way of securing applications, data and devices been greater. Unfortunately, traditional authentication solutions have been limited, until now.”
“We believe our Composite Authentication approach directly impacts those recurring pain points of the CISO, CIO and IT professional,” Roncalli said. “Composite Authentication transforms the way these professionals can protect the integrity of their digital organization by taking the next step to complete protection without overburdening the individual user.”
“We are excited to bring a solution to market that closes the gaps left by traditional authentication solutions,” a spokesman told Homeland Security Today.
At its core, DigitalPersona Composite Authentication is designed to achieve four objectives: close every gap left by traditional authentication approaches, offer rapid adaptability, deliver complete coverage and be human-proofed.
“Together,” the firm said, “these capabilities are transformative: freeing the organization’s security posture from its dependence on people, ensuring usability for both users and IT, and providing long-term protection of an organization’s applications, systems and networks.
