NEW YORK, August 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
ID DataWeb, the innovator behind the cloud based Attribute Exchange Network (AXN), together with PlainID, an innovator and leader in Policy Based, fine-grained access control and dynamic run-time Authorization, today announced the partnership to provide an advanced solution for cloud service access based on dynamic polices.
Connecting identities to services and information is the core of every organization security. Controlling and analyzing this connection is an ever-growing struggle, especially today when both identities and services are operating in a distributed environment. Organizations are required to enable access to their assets from the office and mobile, to their employees, external suppliers, partners and sometimes even to a guest user.
In this complex environment, a comprehensive, and flexible solution is needed. Smart access decisions are required, and can't be pre-determined. The way the user authenticates, what services and data can he access, are all decisions that should be done upon access time, based on the situation.
For example: A user accessing information based service might do so using his Google ID, from an unknown device; but when accessing a more sensitive service, a registered device or step-up authentication might be required.
"Policy based access management for Attribute Based Access Control is a powerful augmentation of our AXN integrated identity security services. With PlainID as a cloud-based, ABAC authorization service, customers can manage policy changes dynamically and leverage AXN services for adaptive authentication to mitigate fraud and transaction risks." - Dave Coxe, CEO of ID DataWeb.
"The demand for real time decisions are growing, organizations can no longer rely on predetermined definitions for their access decisions. Working in distributed environments and enhanced collaboration are driving this need forward," said Oren Harel, CEO of PlainID. "The partnership with ID Dataweb's AXN enables dynamic access decisions based on a rich set of identity attributes."
ID DataWeb's AXN, and PlainID Dynamic Authorization Platform, will provide a unique solution that enables organization to make smart access decisions. What is required to complete the authentication process and what services are available for the user, will be determined, in real-time, based on the current context.
