Enable seamless, secure access with adaptive authentication and authorization policies


According to the Verizon 2017 DBIR, stolen and/or weak passwords are responsible for 81% of hacking-related breaches. Given the potential risks and costs, it’s more important than ever to move beyond passwords to a more secure and flexible form of authentication.


Adaptive authentication and authorization controls can reduce your attack surface by automatically requiring a higher level of assurance for users authenticating from certain IP addresses or geolocations. They can also evaluate a number of other criteria, like when a user last authenticated, and much more before granting access to a resource.


Whether you’re managing employee, partner or customer identities, adaptive policies allow you to deliver a better experience by streamlining and enabling easier access for users who have safe and predictable patterns of use.
