Using strong authentication technology protects enterprise data, alleviates security risks
Given today's economic climate, enforcing and monitoring employee access to information assets is essential to your enterprise security and the strength of your business. As your company attempts to implement a stronger level of network access security to meet regulatory compliance demands, you require the flexibility to deliver strong authentication options that meet your business and employee workflow needs. You also need clear visibility into which employees accessed what, when and how in order to provide bulletproof audit capabilities.
Once you have decided to implement strong authentication, you need to consider the best device or devices that match your employee's workflow. Some things to consider include - are they local or remote users? Will you need to use one form of authentication or two-factors? Is there a need to deploy an existing device, such as their building access card? Additionally, IT will need to ensure they have the proper plans and solutions to easily deploy, manage and track authentication events from any of these users' devices. If you are looking for the ability to centrally manage access policy using any combination of strong authentication modalities that best match employee roles and workflows while strengthening security and enabling users to be their most productive consider Imprivata OneSign® Authentication Management.
