As today's IT infrastructures become more fragmented across cloud-based applications and mobile devices, enterprise network boundaries are all but disappearing. At the same time, the 'consumerization' of IT means that even enterprise users demand simple, transparent access to applications and information, no matter which device they choose to use. Organizations confront unprecedented identity risk arising from these key technology disruptions, and the task of creating and maintaining trusted relationships is becoming more difficult than ever. Addressing these challenges, RSA, The Security Division of EMC® Corporation (NYSE: EMC), today announced the upcoming release of RSA ® Authentication Manager 8, the next-generation access control solution engineered to combine both strong one-time password technology and risk-based authentication to secure access to sensitive data and resources in the enterprise and the cloud.RSA Authentication Manager 8 is engineered to use a risk-based approach to evaluate and assure user identities transparently. User login processes are fast, familiar and simple while RSA's self-learning Risk Engine conducts authentication checks in the background against a number of unique risk factors to help assure the security of every user session.
