A strong authentication solution that validates the identities of users and computing devices that access the non-public areas of an organization’s network is the first step in building a secure and robust information protection system.
A flexible approach that enables an organization to implement different authentication methods based on different risk levels may ensure a robust system that can be efficiently and cost-effectively deployed.
Technologies for multi-factor authentication include:
Products that are built upon standards-based crypto-algorithms and authentication protocols are preferred. Unlike proprietary algorithms, standards-based algorithms have gone through public scrutiny by industry and security experts that reduces the chance of any inherent weaknesses or vulnerabilities. Moreover, they enjoy broad industry support.
Organizations need to ensure that access to all sensitive information is authenticated, whether the information resides on premise or in the cloud. Organizations should implement the same security mechanisms for cloud resources as they would for remote access to the corporate network. In addition, organizations should deploy security mechanisms to ensure that users accessing network resources from their mobile consumer devices (e.g., tablets, smart phones) are securely authenticated.
Authentication environments have to offer convenience and transparency for end users and administrators alike. Following are several guidelines that can help organizations achieve these goals:

A significant number of high profile security breaches have occurred recently, bringing the organizations affected to the front pages of the business press. These events have had a negative impact on the public image of these companies, and may also have a harmful effect on their business. These incidents have caused the CIOs of many companies to reevaluate their info-security strategy in general, while also placing specific focus on their user authentication and transaction security requirements.
In today’s environment, the need for organizations to enable secure remote access to corporate networks, enhance their online services, and open new opportunities for e-commerce is bringing ever-growing attention to the importance of securing user access and validating identities. In addition, the recent barrage of identity theft and corporate fraud cases has brought corporate responsibility and the protection of sensitive data to the spotlight.
