IdentityX®, an award-winning mobile authentication solution, was profiled by Ant Allan in Gartner’s recently released Cool Vendors in Security: Identity and Access Management, 2012* report. According to the analysts authoring the report, the six companies covered provide highly innovative and enhanced technologies within the identity and access management (IAM) market.
The report highlights the need to choose a solution that works well in the real-world and is provided by a capable authentication vendor. Representing a new class of cyber-security solutions, the product uses the end user’s mobile phone or tablet and different combinations of security options to provide unprecedented levels of identity assurance. IdentityX Authenticator can be configured to add layers of security based on transaction risk, from device identifier/certificate-enforced token possession and passcode entry, to GPS analysis and biometrics, such as face and voice matching.
“The adoption by all organizations of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies and the rising demand by consumers to be able to perform transactions involving sensitive data online perfectly exemplify the need for the IdentityX product suite,” stated Conor White, President of IdentityX Inc. “It offers organizations a flexible, cost-effective, and very secure way to authenticate the identity of someone conducting a digital transaction — whether that transaction is internal, such as accessing company files via VPN, or external, such as a customer transferring money from one bank account to another. For any organization looking to provide their users with an easy to use but highly secure digital experience, IdentityX is the perfect solution.”
IdentityX leverages identity assurance software developed by Daon®, a leading provider of identity management and authentication solutions and an IdentityX Inc. affiliate. Daon’s software has been selected to secure hundreds of millions of identities around the globe.
