Risk occurs when employees remotely access mission-critical enterprise applications from personal devices. ThreatMetrix™ addresses these challenges, with a comprehensive process that restores trust in online application access.
Providing employees and partners with remote access to mission-critical applications offers real benefits for businesses, including better agility, improved productivity, and reduced operating costs. Security concerns remain manageable—as long as enterprise IT maintains strict control over end user devices.
The world of secure application access has changed overnight, however, as more diverse, potentially insecure devices are used to access enterprise applications. There’s no avoiding the Bring Your Own Device trend, particularly if your workforce includes mobile employees, contractors, consultants or partners. But how can you give distributed workers access from devices of their choice without falling prey to fraudsters and hackers? In the BYOD environment, it’s easier than ever to use stolen credentials and access corporate IP or regulated information.
Traditional security solutions fall short, and best practices are still emerging. To achieve the full advantages of BYOD while mitigating risk, you need flexible and cost-effective threat prevention. ThreatMetrix solutions detect and prevent identity takeover and IP theft, allowing enterprises to embrace the BYOD trend (and its benefits) without sacrificing security.
Account Takeover Protection
Granting employees and business partners access to web-based applications provides vast benefits for businesses. But businesses must also prevent unauthorized access to confidential information. With ThreatMetrix you can secure your user accounts, ensuring that they are neither compromised nor a source of data theft.
