San Jose, CA – June 23, 2014 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced it is exhibiting in booth 1010 at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit 2014, June 23-26 at Gaylord National Hotel in National Harbor, Md.

The summit brings together more than 1,600 security strategies and business leaders and features more than 50 Gartner analysts who will present research and insights on topics such as workforce access, bring-your-own-device (BYOD), identity management and more. Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from special guest speakers, attend problem-solving workshops and roundtable forums and visit exhibition booths to learn from industry experts. The goal of the summit is for attendees to gain insight into the full spectrum of emerging trends in security and risk management.

According to Gartner, by 2016, more than 30 percent of enterprises will use contextual authentication for workforce access[Source: Gartner Magic Quadrant for User Authentication, December, 2013]. Attendees at the summit will have the opportunity to visit ThreatMetrix’s booth 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.”

To enhance the reach of its contextual authentication capabilities for enterprises, ThreatMetrix recently announced its integration with the Ping Identity PingFederate® identity bridge. The integration leverages context-based authentication and single sign-on, which enables enterprises to deliver transparent and frictionless access to their business portals, boosting productivity and security for all users.
