Crossmatch®, a leading provider of identity management authentication and enrollment solutions, today announced the addition of smart features to its proven DigitalPersona® Altus multi-factor authentication platform. New contextual and application-specific authentication capabilities enable IT and InfoSec managers to step-up security where it’s needed most — while minimizing end-user friction.
Crossmatch showcased the new Altus solution additions and more at the 2016 connect:ID global identity technology exhibition, in Washington, DC.
The contextual and application-specific authentication capabilities further enhance the Altus solution’s human approach to secure access. The new features support end-user workflows that offer risk-based access without obstacles, helping organizations minimize end-user burdens to drive compliance and productivity. IT administrators can manage smart authentication policies—and all user privileges—from a central platform using familiar Active Directory tools.
The proven Altus solution continues to enable companies and government agencies to secure all critical digital assets, providing IT with the agility to swiftly respond to new service and system coverage requests. The comprehensive authentication platform integrates with existing IT infrastructure — including legacy and cloud applications — avoiding a costly “rip and replace” approach and driving faster, more cost effective deployment.
“Now more than ever, Altus provides strong, multi-factor authentication designed for the people that use it — and those that manage it,” said Richard Agostinelli, Crossmatch CEO. “With Altus, Crossmatch customers fully realize the benefits of anytime-anywhere productivity, while protecting the assets of the modern borderless enterprise.”
