Cloud-Based Multi-Factor Authentication


Transforming Enterprise Authentication

When it comes to enterprise-grade authentication, you need to secure your business and users effectively and efficiently, without compromising your user’s experience. It’s essential to provide secure access to applications, systems and files while safeguarding enterprise assets. Ultimately, how do you enable your digital business and mitigate the associated risk?

You need a modern authentication solution that is agile and secure, enabling your digital transformation.

Learn how to determine whether a cloud-based multi-factor authentication solution is right for your organization and three key considerations to ensure the authentication solution you select will securely enable your business transformation.


Embracing Cloud-Based Authentication Solutions

Our modern authentication solutions allow you to seamlessly secure your business, increasing operational efficiency and ensuring a better user experience. Cloud-based multi-factor authentication solutions – also referred to as cloud-MFA or identity-as-a-service solutions (IDaaS) – provide an easier way to manage your identity solutions. They deliver trusted identity and adaptive authentication capabilities across a unified device experience.

Balance Security, Usability and Cost with High Assurance in the Cloud

Whether you need to secure simple portals or highly sensitive assets, we protect and enable your digital business by supporting a range of assurance levels – as well as users with varying levels of access privileges. IntelliTrust allows you to choose your ideal balance of security, usability and cost. When combined with our broad range of authenticators and our next-generation mobile solutions, you can provide high assurance and secure access for employees, partners, vendors and customers.

Single Sign-On – A Necessity in
Today’s Connected World

Single sign-on (SSO) provides strong security and transparent access control by allowing users to log in to cloud-hosted applications or legacy on-premises resources using a single ID and password. This reduces the need for users to authenticate repeatedly while still providing high assurance when confirming a user’s identity.

Leveraging Adaptive Authentication Methods


Our solutions include a layered security approach and comprehensive adaptive authentication methods that utilize device reputation, transaction analytics, contextual data and behavioral biometrics to provide a risk-based assessment that minimizes user impact while stepping up security controls when needed.

The broad range of Entrust Datacard self-service features makes enrollment and activation easy.

Potential Cost Savings Afforded by an IDaaS Solution


Identity and access management (IAM) as a service (IDaaS) may offer significant cost savings compared to an on-premises identity solution. According to Gartner analyst Gregg Kreizman:

Through 2020, organizations that perform cost analysis for internally delivered identity and access management (IAM) will spend 20% less, on average, for IAM as a service (IDaaS) delivery of the same functions, compared with organizations that do not conduct this analysis.*
