ThreatMetrix to exhibit context-based security solutions at Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit 2014 June 23-26 National Harbor, MD

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.

“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.

To that end, attendees will be able to hear special guest speakers, and attend problem-solving workshops and roundtable forums.
