HID Global has added a cloud-based multi-factor authentication, WorkforceID Authentication to its unified identity and access management platform. Creating a seamless experience for issuing, managing and using identity credentials in physical and digital workplaces, Workforce ID Authentication is for consumer applications including online and mobile banking.
The HID WorkforceID Authentication solution enables organisations to extend a streamlined, simple and secure login experience to every user and application throughout today’s diverse and dynamic enterprise environment. It easily integrates with Microsoft’s on-premise Active Directory (AD) or cloud-based Azure AD.
“A person’s identity has become the new security perimeter in a hybrid workplace that now extends from home to the office and everywhere in between,” said Julian Lovelock, VP Global Business Segment, IAM, with HID Global.
“The addition of multi-factor authentication to the HID WorkforceID platform advances our vision of a unified and flexible approach to identity and access management for an organisation’s employees, partners and contractors. This is the next step in providing a suite of applications that manage digital and physical identity credentials through one convenient cloud platform.”
