"With the number of significant breaches we've seen this year it's no secret that static authentication solutions are falling short. Next-generation authentication solutions must be able to adapt as risk levels change and threats become more sophisticated. Merging Big Data analytics with strong authentication technologies is a good first step to answer this call and helps fulfill a growing need in the market."
Joseph Arbellay, Senior System Engineer, ComProSec AG
"Strong authentication is the foundation of IT Security. RSA has listened to customer requirements and with RSA Authentication Manager 8 it has definitively changed the game with regards to offering a comprehensive solution and strongly enhancing product manageability and usability."
RSA Executive Quote:
Manoj Nair, Senior Vice President and General Manager, RSA Identity & Data Protection
"As the enterprise perimeter continues to disappear and the threat landscape continues to change, so must our approach to authentication. Today, only 20% of enterprises deploy some form of strong authentication for their users – leaving the other 80% at risk. Our goal with RSA Authentication Manager 8 is to turn what is fundamentally a Big Data problem into a cost-effective and seamless solution that can help protect 100% of users. By leveraging a Big Data Risk Analytics approach, we are taking the next step towards creating an "infinite factor" system where nearly any element, device attribute or behavior can be part of the equation to calculate risk and authenticity of a user while making it simpler and more effective for the end user."
RSA Authentication Manager 8 will be available worldwide in Q1 2013.
