Enterprise authentication used to be simple: passwords for everyone, expensive tokens for a small number who work remotely. But the world is changing. The workforce is now mobile, with large numbers of employees accessing the corporate network from hotels, coffee shops and their homes, putting confidential data at risk. New security practices and policies are being rolled out for regulatory compliance, and they all highlight the need for strong authentication.

Experts agree that username/password authentication does not provide enough protection against unauthorized access. CIOs are challenged to increase authentication security while preserving operational and budget efficiency.

As the pressure to comply with regulatory requirements combines with the growing number of users working outside the boundaries of the corporation, the need for strong authentication for large portions of an employee community has never been greater. Organisations need stronger forms of authentication that are easy to use and less costly to purchase, deploy and maintain than traditional “one-size-fits-all” options.
