Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security, today announced
its combined solution with iovation,
a TransUnion company, to provide customers with intelligent
authentication to support Zero Trust architectures. Leveraging
intelligent identity and strong authentication from Ping, with device
reputation intelligence from iovation, customers can improve security
and productivity for employees and partners, while also creating
high-quality, secure customer experiences.
How Does it Work?
During the authentication process, iovation FraudForce
recognizes the device requesting access and delivers a risk score by
evaluating associated accounts, past history and suspicious behaviors
tied to that device. PingFederate
then steps in to leverage that risk score when making access decisions
with policies to apply step-up authentication where needed. For example,
under normal circumstances a user should have access to a certain
application. In this case, the device they’re using to access the
application has fraud associated with it or a related device/account.
The joint solution helps ensure that Zero Trust principles, such as
authenticating and authorizing devices based on multiple sources of
data, are followed. In response, the enterprise can tailor its handling
of the increased risk by monitoring the user, limiting the type of
access available or requiring a step up authentication.
“In an age of unrelenting cyberattacks and fraud attempts, assessing
user and device risk is the only way to improve security,” said Mark
Batchelor, chief solutions architect, Ping Identity. “Ping Identity and
iovation are committed to delivering a broad range of risk signals and
enforcement points required to achieve Zero Trust security.”
“We’re excited to work with Ping Identity to create an end-to-end Zero
Trust access security approach with the device at its center,” said Jon
Karl, VP, corporate development, iovation, “By using the device’s
riskiness as a trigger for stepped up authentication, potential
cybercriminals can be kept out while providing low friction for trusted
