By 2016, according to Gartner, more than 30 percent of enterprises will use contextual authentication to verify members of their workforce who work remotely. ThreatMetrix, whose Global Trust Intelligence Network provides enterprises with real-time intelligence for differentiating between authorized and fraudulent users, will be at booth 1010 offering attendees the opportunity to learn about the company’s innovative context-based authentication solutions.

Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix

“Traditionally, the response to failed sign-on attempts in the enterprise has been to add complex and expensive step-up authentication processes to verify users, such as adding tokens or SMS out-of-band authentication ,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “This adds complexity and cost without necessarily protecting against password sharing or the use of stolen credentials. At the Gartner Summit, attendees will learn about ThreatMetrix’s context-based authentication capabilities, which offer all users secure, cost effective and frictionless access through real-time behavior and contextual analytics.”

What the Summit is all about

At the Gartner Summit, 1600 plus security strategies and business leaders and more than 50 Gartner analysts will present research and offer their insights on topics such as workforce access, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and identity management.

The goal of the summit is to give attendees an awareness of the full spectrum of emerging trends in security and risk management. To that end, attendees will be able to hear special guest speakers, and attend problem-solving workshops and roundtable forums. And, they’ll be able to visit exhibition booths to learn from industry experts.

Integrating Ping Identity with ThreatMetrix

Integrating Ping Identity’s PingFederate identity bridge with ThreatMetrix solutions leverages context-based authentication and single sign-on, enabling enterprises to deliver transparent and frictionless access to their business portals. This boosts productivity and security for all users.

ThreatMetrix Announces Integration with Ping Identity to Deliver Context-Based Authentication for Enterprises

Posted on June 17th, 2014 by Dan Rampe

The Combined Solution Provides Organizations with Secure, Transparent and Frictionless Access for Mobile and Online Users

San Jose, CA – June 17, 2014 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announces its integration with the Ping Identity PingFederate® identity bridge, providing contextual employee authentication for enterprises.

Corporate network perimeters have virtually disappeared due to the evolution of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and cloud-based applications that provide workforce, partner and contractor access. As a result enterprises must identify new approaches for securing access to corporate applications and digital assets. Gartner estimates that by year end 2016, more than 30 percent of enterprises will use contextual authentication for workforce access. The integration of ThreatMetrix and PingFederate leverages context-based authentication and single sign-on, enabling enterprises to deliver secure, frictionless access to their business productivity applications for all users.

“Until now, enterprises had to choose between maintaining high levels of access security and improving employee access and open BYOD polices – or they have already made the shift and are relying on weak, single-factor authentication,” said Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer, ThreatMetrix. “As a result, many enterprises are at risk of having sensitive information compromised by cybercriminals accessing employee accounts with stolen credentials. The integration of ThreatMetrix’s context-based authentication with PingFederate’s identity bridge will greatly enhance security and transparency for enterprises without sacrificing employees’ ease of access and productivity.”

The new era of cybersecurity is all about enabling unfettered, yet protected, access to consumer services, business revenues, and productivity assets in a world where it should be assumed that traditional security protections are compromised. The combined solution between ThreatMetrix and Ping Identity delivers transparent and secure access for online and mobile users. Together, these solutions stop cybercriminals at the front door and provide legitimate users full access to all permissible resources in a managed and monitored fashion.

Ping-ID-wTitle

This integration works in three distinct steps:

  • At the point of sign-on, ThreatMetrix – in real time – analyzes the connecting device, associated online personas, transaction context and past behavior
  • This resulting analysis is used by a global policy engine that lets businesses define appropriate risk and trust levels to determine access
  • Based on achieving a predefined level of trust, users are granted access through Ping Identity’s PingFederate product to all their associated applications and online resources

“Ping Identity is pleased to see ThreatMetrix’s support for integrations that help its customers overcome the visibility and security challenges that have been introduced with BYOD,” said Patrick Harding, chief technology officer, Ping Identity. “By enabling federated single sign-on to enterprise and cloud-based apps, Ping Identity complements ThreatMetrix’s context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions with an integrated solution that enables our mutual customers to both authenticate and monitor employees accessing cloud applications from any device.”

According to Gartner, by 2015, the demand for greater security intelligence sharing for context-aware systems will form a marketplace for brokering security data. By leveraging The ThreatMetrix® Global Trust Intelligence Network, the most comprehensive information repository of authentication data, ThreatMetrix is one step ahead in offering intelligence sharing and can provide enterprises with real-time intelligence, effectively differentiating between authentic and fraudulent online activities.
