Leading Independent Research Firm and ThreatMetrix to Host Webinar: “Context-Based Authentication for Mission-Critical Applications”

Posted March 11, 2014

One-Hour Complimentary Webinar to Focus on How Organizations Can Protect Mission-Critical Applications When Usernames and Passwords Fail

San Jose, Calif. – March 11, 2014 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced it is hosting a complimentary one-hour ThreatMetrix™ Cybercrime Education Series webinar on “Context-Based Authentication for Mission-Critical Applications,” featuring Andras Cser, Forrester vice president and principal analyst, and Alisdair Faulkner, ThreatMetrix chief products officer.

There’s no way of escaping today’s headline news that cybercriminals are breaching enterprise security and compromising customer and corporate accounts. The names of the victims are a who’s who of successful corporations: Target, Adobe, Neiman-Marcus, Michaels and many more. No type of organization – including retailers, government agencies, healthcare providers, banks and social networks – is exempt from cybercrime attacks.

“Cybercriminals and state-sponsored actors are becoming better organized and much more sophisticated than ever before,” said Faulkner. “Because the bad guys are at the ‘top of their game,’ security and risk professionals have to be at the top of theirs. To do so, businesses must look beyond traditional username and password protection and instead implement more effective security measures such as context-based authentication.”

Co-presenters Faulkner and Cser will address how context-based authentication protects mission-critical applications from hackers and other cybercriminals. They’ll discuss such vital subjects as:

• Trends in enterprise identity and access management

• Evolving challenges resulting from cloud-based applications and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD)

• When two-factor authentication can be too much of a good thing

• Solutions to combine user information, devices and behavior for context-based authentication
