SECURE DIGITAL IDENTITY PROCESSES FOR US FEDERAL AGENCIES

MyID credential management enables US federal agencies to issue and manage secure digital identities, protecting user access to software, data, systems and buildings for cyber secure operations.

US federal agencies are under continuous cyber threat from state-sponsored, organised crime, activist and terrorist hackers.

To protect federal data, systems and networks from unauthorised access, the US Government has taken a proactive approach in legislating federal agencies to comply with best practice cyber security.

FIPS 201 is one such regulation, implemented in response to a presidential directive (HSPD-12) in order to improve the security of government resources and facilities. This standard and its related Special Publications define hardware, systems and processes for the secure issuance and maintenance of high-assurance, trusted credentials to federal employees and suppliers.

MyID issues and manages FIPS-201 compliant Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials to cards and derived PIV credentials to mobile devices, providing the highest levels of security for mobile working and ensuring compliance with US federal security standards.

MyID credential management for FIPS 201 compliant federal agency digital identities

MyID® software enables federal agencies to issue and manage cryptographically protected digital identities across large numbers of employees using public key infrastructure (PKI) for the most secure method of multi-factor authentication.

Trusted by federal agencies including Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration, MyID reduces the threat of data breach by removing weak user credentials from the equation. This means federal agencies can be certain that personnel attempting to access secure networks, systems and data are who they claim to be.

Security enhanced user access that still enables a seamless experience for employees to get to the information they need in their role, and with the technology they already use.
