BENGALURU: RSA, a Dell Technologies business, showcased a series of enhancements to its RSA SecurID Access offerings, helping to enable organizations to provide stronger identity protection without sacrificing ease of use or forcing users to take on additional security burdens.
The enhancements come as RSA unveiled new Business-Driven Security solutions that comprehensively and rapidly link security incidents with business context to respond effectively and protect what matters most.
The new identity assurance services offerings are designed to address current challenges organizations face in today’s evolving world of security. As cloud and mobile usage grows, the network perimeter is disappearing and identity has become the most consequential threat vector organizations face.
With RSA’s latest innovations in context-based, dynamic risk analytics applied to its industry-leading multi-factor authentication and access management solution — RSA SecurID Access — organizations now have a better way to deliver convenient yet strong security for all users, from many devices, to a multitude of applications, whether on-premises or in the cloud.
“Now more than ever, we have to find a way to effectively balance security and convenience,” said Scott Unruh, Director, Network and Security, JE Dunn Construction. “As our user population grows more diverse and our IT environment gets more complex, we require an identity and access management solution that will help us solve today’s challenges, position us for high growth, and minimize our security risk profile. The technology approach offered by RSA meets these needs in spades.”
A new set of challenges requires organizations to seek out a new array of identity solutions. With the need to manage a dynamic and growing user population both inside and outside organizational walls, providing access to systems, applications and data that exist on-premises and in the cloud, as well as addressing increasing governance and compliance requirements, means current identity strategies are not sufficient for the needs of the modern workforce.
Today, IT security and operations teams are unable to manage the siloes of identity data and lack the centralized visibility into and control over user access they need. Users are frustrated in their attempts to gain convenient access to systems and demand faster access to data and applications. IT simply cannot put identity and access risk into business context fast enough to meet business needs, hindering business growth.
“The CIO and CISO of the modern enterprise must address multiple security and compliance demands while making it easy to achieve a higher level of assurance that users are who they say they are, and are accessing only what they should be at any given time,” said Jim Ducharme, Vice President, Identity Products, RSA. “It is imperative that organizations, no matter the size, find a flexible, easy-to-consume identity assurance solution that serves the needs of today’s modern workforce to access what they need, when they need it, from anywhere.”
RSA SecurID Access helps customers regain control of a disrupted perimeter with multi-factor authentication and single sign-on to the leading Web and SaaS applications, mobile apps and legacy resources (including VPNs, firewalls, on-premises applications, virtual desktops and Windows servers or Linux servers).
Organizations can purchase RSA SecurID Access today from RSA authorized partners and RSA as a subscription or perpetual license that can be deployed on-premises and in the cloud.
