Bluetooth LE in Mobile Identity Authentication
Deploying a strong authentication solution that validates user identities and any devices that access sensitive areas of an organization’s network is the first step in building a secure and robust information protection system.
“According to research done by ABI Research, over 1.25 billion smart phones are expected to ship in 2014. Additionally, the company forecasts smart phone shipments to pass the 2 billion mark in 2018. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the forecast period from 2014 to 2019 is 12%”
Today, mobile has become the ideal delivery channel for many new services such as payment, gaming, application monitoring and management, secure cloud access for enterprises and eGovernment deployments. However, organizations are facing new access control challenges as mobile devices become the computing platform of choice, the majority of enterprises still choose convenience over security – a norm that is primarily due to an outdated perception that implementing strong authentication is complicated, costly, difficult to deploy and inconvenient for users.
How can I address mobile security demands while keeping it cost-effective?
In order to maintain full reputation, organizations need to ensure that access to all sensitive information is authenticated to mitigate cyber attacks, avoid data breaches and intellectual property loss. In addition, organizations should deploy security mechanisms to ensure that users accessing network resources from any terminal including mobile consumer devices (e.g., tablets, smart phones) are securely authenticated.
In the digital security world, because multi-factor authentication (MFA) security requires multiple means of identification at login, it is widely recognized as the most secure method for authenticating access to data and a wide range of web-based applications, SSL VPNs, cloud applications and web-based portals.
Who is in control of our most sensitive data?
In today’s access control and identity markets, Bluetooth Low Energy is a solution because it’s already in just about every recent model handset (also in iPhones and Android handsets) and computer used by clients.)
For companies researching Mobile identity and access control solutions, it is quite important to consider choosing such a solution that complies with industry standards which is even already in just about every recent model handset (including your iPhones and Android handsets) and also computers used by clients.
Deploying such a solution for authentication can help reduce costs and bypass the inconveniences of propriety solutions. Authentication can be made even stronger by combining additional factors for example adding PKI certificate support and support for standard USB connection.
