Beyond Identity, the industry leader in providing phishing-resistant, passwordless MFA, has announced the official launch of 'Zero Trust Authentication' as a subcategory of zero trust technology, along with the introduction of the Zero Trust Leadership series of events worldwide, which will be held throughout 2023.
Combining industry-leading security integrators and technologies, such as Beyond Identity, CrowdStrike, Palo Alto Networks, Optiv, World Wide Technology, BeyondTrust, Climb Channel SolutionsPing Identity, and Guidepoint Security will enable organizations to move toward secure authentication designed to improve the zero-trust strategies of the Fortune 5000.
Zero Trust Authentication was created in response to the failure of conventional authentication methods, a problem that has been compounded by the rise of cyberattacks. Implementing Zero Trust Authentication will enable businesses to surpass the constraints of legacy multi-factor authentication (MFA) and passwords and deploy more effective security strategies.
To achieve this, the Zero Trust Authentication strategy incorporates components like Beyond Identity's risk scoring and continuous authentication functionalities, which greatly increase the given level of security.
Tom Jermoluk, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Beyond Identity, mentioned, "In working with leaders across the security ecosystem, it became apparent to us that the industry needs to formally bring identity and access management into the security fold to continuously deliver the highest level of security around users and devices."
