Credential Management, Authentication and Security Tokens
Organizations can efficiently and cost-effectively create, issue, manage and revoke credentials across diverse user bases and security policies. Robust end-user self service functionality is a core element of credential management to support in-field credentials and provide organizations a key tool for managing costs relating to lost, forgotten or expired credentials. SolidPass can be used for digital certificate management, allowing organizations to ensure their security.
SolidPass Credential Management System
SolidPass provides an exceptional credential management system because of its architecture. Because it is a soft token, there is no fear of a user losing a vital piece of hardware. Should the user lose his or her phone or laptop, the soft token can be simply killed from the back-end and a new token issued for the user. SolidPass provides a cheaper, more secure credential management system than traditional hard token security solutions.
Regulatory requirements are pressuring organizations to adopt
stronger authentication methods and to secure access to data
systems and applications. Static username/password identity
management no longer provide enough security to authenticate
users accurately. This has led to adopting two-factor
authentication systems. Legislation from the Sarbanes-Oxley
Act (SOX), guidelines from the Federal Financial Institutions
Examination Council (FFIEC), and recommendations from the
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
all require that organizations use stronger forms of
authentication to mitigate data theft, prevent fraud, protect
customer information and patient privacy. SolidPass helps
organizations and enterprises comply with regulatory regimes
that cover authorization rules and auditing protocols.
In addition to non-compliance, organizations that continue to use static username/passwords face numerous problems ranging from brute force attacks, dictionary attacks, guessing and social engineering.
