About the CONNECT Conference:                                                        

Today’s threat landscape is broad and sophisticated, and the consequences for failing to adequately protect against threats and respond appropriately when an attack is underway are far reaching. SecureAuth and Core Security deliver to enterprise-class organizations a discover, secure & protect, and respond capability that is only possible with vulnerability, endpoint, and network security fused with a strong identity protection framework.

Identity-based security automation is a new category that reflects the challenges of a silo’ed approach to enterprise security. Automation in the security operations center (SOC) is the inevitable result of increasingly sophisticated technologies and automation is only possible when false positive and negative results are minimal and the response action is precise and coordinated to minimize restrictions on legitimate access to enterprise resources.

SecureAuth and Core Security customers attending the CONNECT event will hear from company leaders, respected speakers, and industry peers on this new approach to the threat landscape. Product sessions will dive into details on current and future products, and research team members will be available to discuss new technologies.

Modern Authentication: Turn a Losing Battle into a Winning Strategy

Passwords, multi-factor authentication, knowledge-based questions/answers, and hard tokens are based on technologies that are now 20 years old. With organizations losing the battle against cyber attacks, it’s clearly time to move beyond these legacy technologies and adopt a modern approach in which awareness and flexibility are king.  Authentication must adapt based on the level of risk, so that it can deliver strong security yet be invisible to users most of the time.

Achieving that balance of strong security and appropriate user friction is the basis for modern authentication. This session will explore what modern authentication is and why using it across all users, devices, and services is vital to turning a losing battle into a winning strategy to stop cyber attacks.
