INTRODUCING CRYPTO-BASED MOBILE AUTHENTICATION WITH MYID

MyID’s new mobile authentication feature turns your workforce’s mobile devices into crypto-protected keys, enabling passwordless multi-factor authentication for end users into cloud resources, corporate systems and networks through touch ID, facial biometric or a PIN.

Unlike One Time Passwords (OTPs), mobile authentication with MyID uses PKI technology to issue a digital identity to each end users’ device, meaning organisations can have complete confidence in the digital identities they trust, combining greater security with a better user experience.

Simple to deploy, MyID plugs into existing environments, and provides all of the management necessary for IT teams to control access policies, issue, and manage the lifecycle of end user digital identities at scale. 

Available as part of MyID Enterprise and MyID PIV

HOW DOES IT WORK?

MyID’s new mobile authentication feature allows a smartphone or tablet device to be used for securely authenticating a user to cloud and network-based systems and resources.

The smartphone is issued with a PKI-based digital identity which is protected by a PIN, Touch ID or FaceID. Unlike other 2FA solutions, MyID uses a PKI based digital identity to bind a user to a private key.

The private key never leaves the mobile device and this is associated with an encrypted certificate which ties the key to a specific user.  This allows a digitally signed authentication attempt to be validated with the certificate, giving the organisation confidence that users accessing secure systems really are who they claim to be.

THE BENEFITS OF MOBILE AUTHENTICATION WITH MYID

Optimum security

Replace passwords with secure digital identities and remove the greatest threat of data breach; passwords. Dual channel authentication - using browser authentication and signing direct to mobile, mitigates against the threat of interception

Cost effective deployment

Reduce hardware cost by using end users’ smartphones in place of smart cards

Simple to deploy

The MyID mobile authentication functionality is built into MyID Enterprise and MyID PIV, both systems are vendor neutral and will flexibly integrate into existing environments

Excellent user experience

Using the familiar mobile PIN, Touch ID and Face ID interface makes the authentication process simple for end users, increasing user adoption and minimising help desk demand

Full management capability

With MyID IT teams have the software to issue and manage the lifecycle of user credentials, including policy control, auditing and reporting

Flexible integration

Support for both MDM managed and BYOD environments across platforms
