Posted July 15, 2014
World’s Largest Identity Conference Will Bring Together Industry Leaders to Discuss Solutions for Today’s Identity Landscape
San Jose, CA – July 15, 2014 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced it is a Silver Sponsor and exhibiting at the upcoming Cloud Identity Summit 2014, held July 19-22 at the Monterey Conference Center in Monterey, Calif.
The Cloud Identity Summit is the largest annual event of its kind, bringing together top identity and security industry professionals. This year’s summit features workshops on a number of pressing identity topics, including identity management for today’s enterprise, the Internet of Things and identity management for the masses. Each year, these workshops serve as a roadmap to deploy solutions for the changing identity landscape.
“As businesses and technology continue to move to the cloud, enterprises are realizing the need to implement a modern security strategy to distinguish between good and bad actors at the point of sign-on before they even get a chance to access sensitive information,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer, ThreatMetrix. “We’re excited to sponsor and exhibit at this year’s Cloud Identity Summit and to share our expertise in advanced fraud prevention and context-based authentication.”
This year’s Cloud Identity Summit host sponsor is Ping Identity and ThreatMetrix recently announced an integration with Ping Identity’s PingFederate® identity bridge. The integration leverages context-based authentication and single sign-on, which enables enterprises to deliver secure, frictionless access to their business and customer centric applications for all users.
The ThreatMetrix and Ping Identity integration works in three steps:
- At the point of sign-on, ThreatMetrix – in real time – analyzes the connecting device, associated online personas, current 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 solution to all their associated applications and online resources
Following the Cloud Identity Summit, ThreatMetrix is participating in the Ping Cup competition on Wednesday, July 23. ThreatMetrix was chosen as one of five new integrations to demonstrate its solution in the competition and the winner will be awarded $2,002 to be donated to its charity of choice.
