FREMONT, Calif., April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Efiia Group, a Mobile Engagement provider delivering secure mobility solutions for Government and Public Sector clients, and DeviceAuthority, Inc., a leader and pioneer in device authentication and device-based security solutions, announced today that the companies are partnering to offer state of the art secure access and strong user authentication solutions to Government and Public Sector organizations. The agreement establishes Efiia as a premier partner and reseller of Device Authority's D-FACTOR™ authentication technology.
Existing access and user authentication solutions are failing. However, conventional strong authentication models involving CAC/PIV and multi-factor authentication significantly impedes the user experience, particularly in BYOD and mobile-centric use cases. Government efforts to establish heightened access security controls around models such as derived credentials demonstrate the value that advanced device authentication can deliver to Federal, state and local agencies.
D-FACTOR™ provides a powerful trifecta of device-based security, including authenticated device identity, device integrity verification and policy enforcement for cloud, mobile and network-based applications. This combination of advanced security delivers uniquely customizable dynamic device authentication and validation required to stay ahead of rapidly evolving cyber threats.
"We evaluated and tested numerous different authentication technologies before concluding that Device Authority has something truly impressive that will have a huge impact in the government and public sector space. Device Authority gives you the confidence that your edge device is the one you provisioned, and not a device that has been cloned, modified, intercepted or hacked, which is all too common once you deploy it out in the field," said Stephen Thompson, Efiia's Chief Technology Officer.
"Efiia is a perfect partner for Device Authority with an incredible team of people that brings an outstanding network of resellers, connections, and capabilities to our partnership. We are delighted to have them as partners and appreciate our shared goal of providing advanced security solutions for our government customers," said Talbot Harty, CEO of Device Authority. Mr. Harty will be attending RSA 2015 and participating in briefings this week. Please contact Device Authority at 510-972-2821 for more information.
