It is a universal truth that the data in some apps is more sensitive than others. In order to further protect specific applications, Symplified seamlessly supports strong authentication for sensitive and high-trust and applications. This affords more robust security than simple username and password logins by offering native authentication support, multiple authentication level policies, ‘step-up authentication’, and mobile strong authentication.
Strong authentication can be implemented across all web and cloud applications or on an application-by-application basis. Symplified integrates with leading solutions such as GridSure, CryptoCard and Symantec VIP, all of which deliver cloud-based strong authentication. The basis for the additional security is that they combine something you know (e.g. a username and password) with something you have (e.g. a credential such as a card, token, or mobile phone).
Protect a Single App, a Single User Group, or Everything
Combined with Symplified’s access policy engine, you can assign strong authentication to specific users, specific applications, specific parts of an application, or specific IP address ranges. If, for example, a user attempts to access a protected application from an unknown location or device they will be challenged with a secondary strong authentication validation step.
