Why Digital Identity Matters

Mitigate risks without slowing down user productivity


Life- and mission-critical organizations must adhere to enhanced security measures and protocols to prove compliance for wide-ranging regulations. In healthcare, this means taking special precautions to safeguard patient information. For financial service organizations, it’s crucial to prevent fraud. These, and other mission-critical industries, must secure every identity at every access point, but do so without slowing down business operations when every second matters.

Using digital identity solutions to manage, control, and secure access

Every internal user has a unique digital identity that can be used to access your IT systems and applications. Organizations must manage, maintain, and control employee access with role-based access controls, secure authentication, and privileged access management (PAM protocols).

Digital identity in transportation and logistics

Cyberattacks on transportation and logistics organizations can have worldwide repercussions, and nearly half involve compromised credentials. At the same time, granting carte blanche access to shared workstations, applications, and mobile devices is essentially like leaving all the doors to your network open.
