PORTLAND, Ore., April 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Acceptto, a leading provider of Cognitive Continuous Authentication, today announced the extension of its Cognitive Continuous AuthenticationTM eGuardian® platform with an end-to-end continuous multi-factor authentication (MFA) integration with leading cloud platforms such as Citrix Workspace, Microsoft Azure, Salesforce, ServiceNow and VMWare. These integrations empower Acceptto to extend the Identity Access Management (IAM) ecosystem, offering enterprise users a plug and play, intelligent context-aware continuous authentication including post authorization with the most popular cloud software providers, streamlining out of the box integration.
"We're excited to be extending our continuous authentication and contextual MFA offering to be easily integrated with these leading, global, world-class cloud software providers, making it easier for CISOs and IT security professionals to ensure that only the right people have access to the privileged resources, for the right reasons," says Shahrokh Shahidzadeh, CEO at Acceptto. "Thanks to our patented Biobehavioral™ approach which creates immutable identity, we can successfully eliminate identity breaches and credential stuffing. More importantly, enterprise customers and their employees now have peace of mind knowing that there is an ongoing, continuous authentication even post authorization."
Security and privacy breaches are extremely costly and have a significant impact on the brand equity of an organization. Current authentication solutions using rudimentary two-factor authentication (2FA) and MFA impose significant friction through a variety of temporary and binary controls that have all still proven ineffective safeguards against identity spoofing and even basic credential stuffing attacks. Acceptto brings continuous authentication to solutions that have historically used binary authentication, which only determines access and does not account for misuse of credentials once access is granted. Through the latest Acceptto integrated capabilities, these solutions can now deploy continuous authentication to ensure proper use of credentials throughout the entire session.
"A paradigm shift is necessary for authentication and identity access management. As we move away from usernames, passwords and other forms of temporal, binary and biometrics controls, there is a needed shift to a new generation of behavioral modeling to improve the security of corporate data," said Michael Osterman, principal analyst at Osterman Research, Inc. "Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies are definitely becoming valuable capabilities as part of the next-generation of identity access management solutions."
Using a mixture of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AIML) powered expert systems and behavioral modeling, Acceptto delivers radically transformative technology to mitigate identity impersonation and access fraud while reducing friction for legitimate users, both for enterprise and consumer facing applications and services. At the core of the Cognitive Authentication™ platform is eGuardian®, the intelligent engine that drives the convergence of physical identity and digital user DNA towards the creation of a resilient immutable identity. The It'sMe™ single sign-on (SSO) solution for web, mobile and enterprise applications, relieves users from the challenges of passwords, eliminates the need for password resets and reuse, and neutralizes account takeovers. With Cognitive Authentication™, there is no need for a password, ever.
Acceptto is the industry's first solution providing technology to develop a Biobehavioral™ authentication that continuously monitors and manages access to cyber resources. For more information, please visit https://www.acceptto.com/.
