The Growth of Adaptive AuthenticationOneSpan's Tim Bedard on Evolutionary Strategies and Controls
The right authentication controls at the right time for the right transactions - the adaptive authentication message is taking off, says OneSpan's Tim Bedard. And here are some quick wins organizations might focus on when starting down the path.
For organizations that are still dependent on usernames and passwords, it's time to start weening off those controls, Bedard says. "You want to start doing layered security," he says. "What I mean by that is to bring in additional adaptive authentication-type methods, so that you actually ... start to use some soft tokens, hard tokens or some biometrics ..." to enhance your approach.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Fraud and Breach Summit in Chicago, Bedard discusses:
- Quick wins for adaptive authentication;
- Authentication technologies he's bullish on;
- How OneSpan is helping organizations update their authentication strategies.
Bedard is the director of security product marketing at OneSpan, responsible for its Trusted Identity Platform security solutions for financial services. With more than 20 years of IT security experience, he previously held leadership positions in product strategy, product management and marketing at SailPoint Technologies, RSA Security and CA Technologies.
