Enabling Your Privileged Users

The reality is that intrusion attempts will be made on your enterprise. An easy path for hackers or malicious insiders is stealing the privileged credentials of senior leaders or system administrators that have access to your critical applications. If successful, they have free reign across your enterprise for weeks or months before they’re detected.

Secure Access for Your Privileged Users

Your privileged users want frictionless experiences when accessing networks and apps. Providing great UX and strong security requires adaptive authentication technologies, which make it easy to grant, manage and withdraw specific privileges instantly. It also requires the elimination of usernames and passwords to prevent theft of those types of credentials.

IT Leaders

Securely accessing you critical infrastructure

M&A Teams

Keeping strategic information accessible and confidential

Multi-Level Authentication for High-Assurance Use Cases

The most secure authentication solutions will also offer multi-level authentication, which is crucial in high-assurance use cases, such as providing access for privileged users. Types of multi-level authentication include:


Device Reputation

Recognizes and detects fraud across internet devices based on patterns to stop fraud and abuse in real time, prior to login.

Transactional Analytics and Behavioral Biometrics

Analyzes points of user interaction — such as frequency of logins, or changes in touch/swipe motions — to gain a complete picture of potentially fraudulent behavior.

Step-up Authentication

If risk is elevated for a user, it’s important to enable step-up authentication that offers the security and UX of mobile push authentication, touch ID or Bluetooth wireless login.

Adaptive Risk-Based Authentication Policies

Authentication solutions are not one size fits all, especially when it comes to high-assurance use cases like privileged users. Our platforms offer adaptive risk-based policies that allow administrators to define access control policies on a per-application or per-user group basis using:


Weighted Risk Factors

Risk factors can be weighted differently within the same application or asset, depending on the user group.

Risk-Level Definition

Administrators can define risk-levels such as low, medium and high based on application and user group.

Authentication Decisions

Our platforms enable you to allow, block or challenge access for each risk level. You can also define specific authenticators for various challenge scenarios.

Visibility and Control Across Your Enterprise

Entrust Datacard offers those kinds of controls and security options through the lifecycle management capabilities embedded in our authentication platforms. These tools allow you to see precisely who has access to high-value networks, apps and information in real time. Our technology can be integrated with Active Directory to give you complete visibility and control of permissions across your enterprise.
