Strata Identity | January 04, 2023

Strata Identity, a company that provides identity orchestration services, has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a global organization focused on promoting best practices for secure cloud computing. Strata Identity will work with CSA members on projects related to the open source IDQL Standard and identity orchestration. The open source IDQL Standard and identity orchestration are two ways that Strata Identity is working to make cloud computing safer. Strata Identity's platform allows incompatible cloud identity systems to work together, allowing customers to unify access policies and governance. The company is also a founding member of Hexa, an open source identity federation software, and the IDQL Standard for policy orchestration. Strata Identity wants to make cloud computing safe for its customers by helping them bring their access policies and governance together. "Lack of interoperability between individual cloud identity platforms and their legacy on-premises brethren is holding back app modernization and cloud migration projects. We look forward to collaborating with the CSA’s extensive community of vendors, enterprises, and industry influencers to advance open standards for cloud identity orchestration." Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity, said the company is looking forward to collaborating with the CSA to advance open standards for cloud identity orchestration.

SecureAuth Announces Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric™ to Strengthen Passwordless Continuous Authentication

Arculix | November 21, 2022

SecureAuth, a leader in access management and authentication, today announced its Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric to further strengthen the technology to enable organizations for passwordless continuous authentication. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is a technology framework that delivers authentication driven by AI/ML behavioral modeling, continuous risk scoring and eliminates logging in making passwords obsolete. For users, it’s a one-and-done event for accessing their relevant apps, VDI or SSO. For companies, it’s a robust authentication with continuous authentication in the background without any friction to the user. “Historically, a single source to define and administer policy and processes for all users has been absent, Fraud, credential stuffing and attacks will continue to evolve as bad actors thwart existing security approaches. SecureAuth’s Universal Authentication Fabric delivers the first risk-based analytics approach as a consolidated backbone for continuous, multi-factor, and passwordless authentication with the highest level of security as well as a frictionless experience for users.” Paul Trulove, CEO of SecureAuth Between authenticating to the workstation, an SSO portal or federated web apps, VDIs, VPN, and PAM solutions, the typical user authenticates 16 times a day using three different sets of username and password. This is simultaneously insecure and a poor user experience. With Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric, users can login once and securely access the applications needed to do their job. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric allows users to attain a level of assurance needed to authenticate with its patented behavioral AI/ML risk analytics engine. To ensure there is no account takeover (ATO), it generates a score at the beginning of a user logging in that is used to grant access to web apps, servers and services without requiring another factor check. This removes the need for siloed systems to authenticate users. “SecureAuth’s Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is the underlying element for the new 360-degree cybersecurity perimeter that every enterprise needs: Continuous, Holistic and Adaptive,” said Alfredo Estirado, CEO of Grupo TRC. “As a key partner of SecureAuth, we are excited to offer this to our customers across various geographies.” Key capabilities include expansion of passwordless features into endpoints, including access to persistent and non-persistent VDIs, in the same passwordless way a user authenticates to a standard machine. This enables a passwordless authentication journey whether in or out of the office. This Universal Authentication Fabric also supports our device trust support for seamless passwordless authentication for transient virtual desktops and physical desktops. About SecureAuth Corporation SecureAuth is a next-gen access management and authentication company that enables secure and passwordless continuous authentication experience for employees, partners and customers. With the only solution that can be deployed in cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments, SecureAuth manages and protects access to applications, systems and data at scale, anywhere in the world.
