RSA adds capabilities to security solution

RSA, a Dell Technologies business, has extended its authentication market leadership with a series of new capabilities for its RSA SecurID Access solution, the company said.

Enhancements include a cloud-based Authentication-as-a-Service option aimed at delivering seamless access to both on-premises and cloud-based resources and systems, and additional dynamic, risk scoring functionality that is designed to deliver convenient and secure access for any user, anywhere, any time.

As cloud and mobile use grows, and the user access base expands to include contractors, vendors, partners and customers, organizations are provisioning access to more systems, creating a larger, evolving attack surface, primarily targeting identities.

Identity innovations from RSA are engineered to enable customers to reimagine their identity strategies to better protect all of their critical business assets — whether on-premises or in the cloud — against identity-based attacks, meet compliance requirements and deliver more flexible authentication options for the modern workforce.

RSA SecurID Access offers flexibility and convenience for customers with a broad range of advanced mobile multi-factor authentication options such as push notification/approval, biometrics (fingerprint, eye-print), Fast Identity Online (FIDO) token, and hardware and software tokens.

RSA offers business-driven security solutions that uniquely link business context with security incidents to help organizations manage risk and protect what matters most. RSA solutions are designed to effectively detect and respond to advanced attacks; manage user identities and access; and, reduce business risk, fraud, and cybercrime.
