“In the present era, healthcare organizations are in need of a range of credentials based on their risk/threat profile and they also require flexibility to deploy solutions pertinent to their user population (identity assurance levels, authentication levels, etc.),” says Audebert. Most CIOs face the daunting task of ensuring their company’s identity assurance needs are met. Axiad’s Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solutions are easy and fast to deploy, simple for the end-user to utilize, and do not jeopardize the higher-security objective of customers. The firm combines technologies such as mobility, biometrics, tokens, and behaviors to enhance the user experience, without compromising security. “Our approach starts with what customers need from a business and security perspective; we then build solutions to address those needs,” says Audebert.

Additionally, Axiad IDS helps enterprises meet multi-factor authentication needs including those mandated by NIST SP800-171. “We also offer a comprehensive set of products and services to enable issuance, usage and management of PIV, CAC, PIV-I and CIV credentials across government agencies, government contractors, and enterprises,” adds Audebert.
For instance, a ‘big four’ global consulting firm turned to Axiad IDS to help it comply with the U.S. Department of Education Compliance requirement to protect Student Loan information using smart card based two-factor authentication (PIV-I). Imperative to the firm’s ability to do business with the U.S. government, Axiad ID Cloud helped the firm implement a fully compliant solution in just three weeks.
Axiad IDS is constantly making investments in Axiad ID Cloud as well as its innovative high assurance and high security solutions to ensure it has the flexibility required to meet the needs of a range of users. “We are excited to be a part of the wave of innovation coming to identity assurance. In the coming year we will see increasing focus on mobility, biometrics and behaviors, and Axiad IDS will be at the forefront of this change,” concludes Audebert.
