New ID & access cloud platform from HID

Austin, Tx

Tnew HID Authentication Service from HID Global is part of its cloud identity platform and is designed to deliver a suite of trusted identity solutions.

These services make it easy to manage and use identities through a secure cloud delivery model. This multi-tenant cloud authentication service offers large scale, simplified on-boarding of users and frictionless authentication for identity and access management (IAM) customers spanning a variety of industries.

Regulations, such as GDPR, PSD2, the California Privacy Regulation and HIPAA, are causing organisations to struggle to provide the necessary security, convenience and compliance for user access. These organisations often deploy a patchwork of identity solutions – on-premise, cloud or hybrid – from different vendors that don’t work well together or don’t provide the necessary authentication services to meet their compliance needs. The result is complexity, IT overhead, organisational confusion and solutions that don’t scale or comply with regulatory requirements.

The HID Authentication Service removes this complexity and the related challenges of providing multifactor authentication to a growing and diverse population of users. While some other identity vendors offer single-purpose authentication solutions that may solve one problem, HID’s new IAM cloud solution will continue to build in new services that allow organisations to leverage their existing technology to accomplish new identity goals. It also provides centralised audit logs to simplify compliance capabilities and reduce the burden of audits.

“HID Global continues its move toward cloud solutions with the addition of new IAM services, expanding the offering with a unifying technology platform for our millions of users,” said Brad Jarvis, Vice President & Managing Director of Identity & Access Management Solutions (IAMS) with HID Global. “HID is among the only IAM solution providers that can offer authentication for high security use cases all the way down to basic enterprise multifactor authentication. With this breadth of solutions, we believe that organisations in regulated markets, in particular, will gain the most significant benefits from the HID Authentication Service.”

HID’s new cloud solution is purpose-built for IT teams to manage identities in mixed environments. With sophisticated attacks on the rise, the HID Authentication Service is an ideal platform for handling a large-scale rollout, testing, provisioning and delivery of authentication services to protect networks and applications.
