Kicking Your Enterprise Security Up a Notch with Adaptive Authentication



Tuesday, July 30 | 8.30 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.
Venue - The Company, Singapore. Odeon Towers #02-01, 331 North Bridge Road, Singapore 188720

This workshop is hosted by WSO2 together with our Premier Partner, Chakray Consultancy along with Industrie&Co.

The number of security(or data) breaches is on the rise. Most of them can be avoided by using multi-factor authentication (MFA). The challenge in MFA is usability. FIDO is becoming the de facto standard for MFA. Google, LinkedIn, Facebook all use FIDO internally for their employees for authentication, but it too finds it hard to reach the mass market. There is also a shift from MFA to continuous and adaptive authentication. That, for some extent, addresses the usability concerns.

WSO2 Identity Server has comprehensive support for adaptive authentication, which in fact goes well beyond traditional adaptive authentication use cases supported by many IAM vendors. With a set of javascript templates, identity administrators can get the complete control of the authentication flow, enforce rules, do attribute transformations, talk to external systems, do step up authentication and much more. All industries, especially banking and finance should consider adopting adaptive authentication to give their users a better experience.

This workshop will discuss the evolution of authentication mechanisms, pitfalls of existing ones, how adaptive authentication may be the answer to help your enterprise become an agile one and how WSO2 Identity Server can help you implement adaptive authentication.
