Identity Security Champion
Winner: Johnson & Johnson
Johnson & Johnson was recognized for their successful implementation of a risk-based authentication solution amidst the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic sending their workforce to work remotely from home. In a typical work week, they’re able to suppress MFA for around 80% of logins while protecting all of their SaaS applications equally well. With more than 700k logins per week, they estimate that they have avoided approximately 1900 lost person-hours of work weekly by using their new risk-based authentication solution.
Cloud Identity Champion
Eurofins earned the top award by building a comprehensive identity experience to allow approximately 55,000 users access to all their in-house developed applications. This removed duplicate accounts in corporate and clinical domains for frictionless UX, allowed users that weren’t integrated with the company in the past to now use all services needed with a single account and password and achieved a geo-redundant global federation hub.
Modern Identity Champion
Winner: Old Mutual
Old Mutual, along with their partner Altron Security, were recognized for migrating an on-premises legacy IAM platform to a modern one deployed in the Cloud (AWS). 41 business applications were migrated for a user base of over 2 million users. As a result, costly upgrades and software licenses were avoided, user experience was improved and additional capabilities such as passwordless authentication and consent-controlled access management were introduced.
Better Identity Together
Winner: BGL Group & ProofID
BGL Group and their partner ProofID were acknowledged for their re-platforming exercise to produce a frictionless customer experience for their insurance application.
