ADAPTIVE ACCESS CONTROL
What is Adaptive Access Control?
Adaptive access control is a security strategy that adjusts the level of access a user has to a system or network based on their risk profile. This is typically done by evaluating a number of factors, such as the user's location, the device they are using, and the time of day they are attempting to log in. If a user's risk profile is deemed to be low, they may be granted access to the system with minimal additional authentication, while a user with a high risk profile may be required to provide additional authentication factors or may be denied access altogether. The goal of adaptive access control is to strike a balance between security and user convenience, by providing the right level of access to the right users at the right time.
ADAPTIVE ACCESS CONTROL
By adjusting the level of access a user has based on their risk profile, adaptive access control can help to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information.
Enhanced user experience
By only requiring additional authentication when necessary, adaptive access control can make the login process faster and more convenient for users.
Better risk management
Adaptive access control allows organizations to better manage their risk by identifying users who may pose a greater threat and taking steps to mitigate that risk.
By streamlining the authentication process, adaptive access control can help organizations to reduce the time and resources spent on authentication and focus on more important tasks.
Adaptive access control allows organizations to adjust their authentication processes based on changing security needs, making it more adaptable and responsive to new threats.
ADAPTIVE ACCESS CONTROL FEATURES
Passive and Frictionless
It works on background and doesn’t slow down, interrupt or interfere with the user experience.
Preventing Social Engineering Attacks
Attackers can steal the user passwords but not user behaviors.
Balancing Usability and Security
Risk based adaptive access allows to enable security measures only when really needed.
Incorporating behavioral analytics into risk parameters improves the accuracy of anomaly detection.
Adaptive Access Control
Using risk scores, you can activate/deactivate MFA, send notifications, and adapt access control decisions.
With risk based authentication, passwordless future is getting closer to reality.
