Increased pressure to provide trusted access to business assets, compliance with a range of regulatory requirements combined with the globalization of and distributed nature of business today has made Identity Management one of the most critical business problems for organizations to solve in recent years.
Organizations are demanding more from their IT environments for all aspects of their business. These demands are translating into more security requirements and a realization that traditional username and password based authentication systems are no longer sufficient. These systems have simply not kept up with the increasing value and risks associated with the increasing use of IT for all aspects of the organization’s business.
A key strategy is to anticipate, adapt and implement stronger forms of authentication that are consistent with business requirements. These could include digital certificates, smart cards, one-time password technologies, biometrics and others. Deciding which are the right long term choices can be tricky and often best addressed with the assistance of an objective and experienced partner in the project such as Avaleris.
Avaleris’ professional staff has helped many global organizations to deploy strong authentication solutions – successfully. Our deep domain expertise comes from a solid track record of client success and understanding of the challenges organizations face in deploying strong authentication solutions.
The implementation of strong authentication can provide many benefits and should be implemented in a series of well managed phases. These phases include understanding the organization’s policy requirements and goals for implementing strong authentication. This can then move to technology assessments and pilots. Finally, once it is clear that a set of technologies is appropriate for the organization it must be implemented in a product setting and other critical items like training and operational planning are required. Avaleris has the expertise and experience to provide valuable services across this entire spectrum.
