Effective user authentication requires innovative solutions
Protecting your data is high priority - a security breach can mean significant losses in competitiveness, productivity and reputation, as well as financial losses and regulatory fines. User authentication technology can provide increased security but adding a security policy platform, including single sign-on and ensuring you have event reporting for who accessed what data, when and from where and you have an effective user authentication solution. If you can find a solution that incorporates all of these options, it would likely be costly to purchase, a nightmare to implement and difficult manage, jeopardizing the very user authentication security that it is meant to provide. To achieve data security, you need a solution that not only can authenticate users, manage their many passwords and provide user authentication reporting, but a solution that is affordable and easy to deploy and manage. For a market-leading user authentication solution, consider Imprivata.
