Fischer Identity Announces Five-Factor Authentication Addition to IGA Suite at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2017
According to Fischer's COO, Dan Dagnall, it is now more important than ever that organizations provide multifactor authentication, especially for sensitive systems including identity governance and administration. "With hackers charging forward, taking advantage of even the lowest profile of user to gain an edge on you, securing your high profile users as well as your end users has become a fundamental pillar and necessary investment to secure your operating environment. If you have not made the leap to MFA yet, the time is now."
Fischer Authenticator™ is an intuitive five-factor authentication solution that intelligently establishes the level of trust an organization needs before granting access to the Fischer ecosystem, yet all factors are quick and easy to use. Users respond to authentication requests by simply opening their Fischer Authenticator mobile app, then authenticating using the number and type of factors requested – no clumsy one-time passwords, no SMS vulnerably, no special hardware tokens, no limits. Just security, convenience and control where ever you need. You can even go passwordless if you choose.
Authenticator leverages the power of your existing Fischer access controls and the user's mobile device to create a richer picture of the risk each login presents. The user's current accounts and entitlements, location and other data can be used to dynamically determine the number and type of factors to enforce in context of the perceived risk. Where permitted by your policies, users may respond to authentication requests using their preferred factors. Doing so promotes higher adoption through convenient UX plus the sense of empowerment from having more control over their own identity within your environment. Fischer believes that a collaborative approach provides the strongest authentication model possible.
The Sixth Factor: Buzz. The value and appeal of Authenticator is not simply the number of authentication factors it offers. It's also the "buzz factor" that's created by using imaginative, intuitive and simple authentication factors.
Maximize Value and Time-to-Value. Authenticator™ can be quickly configured, rolled-out and governed as it utilizes your existing Fischer policies, access controls and capabilities. Leverage automated provisioning and deprovisioning, self-service access request, recertification, SoD enforcement and others. Reporting, analytics, event logging, dashboards and other facilities are provided as common components for all modules.
