The MyID product for employees

Enables enterprises to replace employee passwords with more secure and more convenient digital identities on smart cards, virtual smart cards and mobile devices: providing protection against the number one cause of data breaches - weak or compromised user credentials.

What is MyID?

MyID is a software solution deployable on-premises or in the cloud.  It comprises a three-tier server infrastructure (web, database and business object layer) which can easily be scaled from small to very large deployments.

The server provides out-of-the-box connectors to common infrastructure components (e.g. PKI and Directories) and APIs to allow for easy integration as part of a larger identity management ecosystem.

A MyID client connects the server infrastructure to a wide range of client-side security devices (e.g. smart cards, on-device security chips, smart card printers) and provides an interface for operators to issue digital identities to employees and citizens.

Self-service app and kiosk interfaces allow end users to perform credential management tasks at their own desktop (e.g. collecting new credentials to an existing device) by following simple guided processes, reducing the operational cost of managing large deployments.

A mobile app and SDK allow digital identities to be securely deployed to mobile devices over the air, and a M=mobile SDK allows them to be easily used for apps that do not have their own cryptographic capabilities.

 

How does it work?

MyID is built on our decades of experience supplying cybersecurity solutions.

Once deployed, MyID is connected to your existing infrastructure (e.g. PKI and directory), and issuance rules and policies are created, giving an organization control over who can issue what to whom.  The Intercede professional services team and our network of partners are highly experienced in configuring MyID to fit existing business processes, and complying with specific regulatory requirements.

MyID is then used on a daily basis to issue trusted digital identities to employees across a wide range of devices including smart cards, virtual smart cards and mobile. 

MyID also manages the lifecycle of credentials, for example automatically revoking them if a user leaves the organization, or updating them in advance of expiry.  These lifecycle activities can be automated, operator led or self-service, allowing an organization to choose the best balance of security and convenience.

All credential issuance and lifecycle events are recorded within MyID, allowing full visibility of who has active access credentials. The built-in audit enquiries and reports are often used as part of a compliance audit to show an organization is in control of who can access their systems.
