SecureAuth has moved forward with the official launch of its new identity and access management solution. The Arculix offering is built to be a comprehensive security tool that will help simplify management procedures while still delivering a high level of security.
To that end, Arculix supports passwordless authentication during login, and supplements that with behavioral analytics to provide ongoing security during a session. The solution is compatible with other identity solutions, and can be used as part of a broader multi-factor authentication setup.
On the management front, Arculix is also an orchestration tool, which is to say that administrators can use it to create custom identity workflows without needing to create their own procedures. SecureAuth claims that the system is designed to be as flexible as possible, to allow organizations to set their own risk levels and adaptive access control policies. Arculix delivers those utilities right out of the box, and can be deployed on-premises or as a turnkey Software-as-a-Service offering.
Arculix provides coverage across desktop and mobile devices, and can help organizations consolidate their access management procedures through its Single Sign-On (SSO) features. Its behavioral modeling tech can distinguish employees from contractors and bots, based on factors like device and browser activity. It will also ask for step-up authentication if anything seems to be amiss.
“If, after initial authentication, you never authenticate again, a bad actor could potentially run rampant in your system,” explained SecureAuth CEO Paul Trulove. “That’s why organizations are moving away from passwords as a mechanism for authentication. They continually evaluate risk signals observed during a session to determine if something has changed and whether they need to reauthenticate.”
Arculix is making its debut less than a year after SecureAuth acquired Acceptto in an effort to bolster its behavioral biometric portfolio. The company also received four patents for various passwordless authentication solutions in the first few months of the year.
