Moving beyond passwords with Citrix Workspace and Veridium

citrix passwordsLet’s face it, a mobile workforce is not easy to manage. Employees expect instant, friction-free access to corporate resources across any location, network or device. And as an employer you want your people to be as productive as possible, but you must also carefully manage the risks associated with mobility. It’s essential to protect enterprise apps and data from being compromised by security threats and ensure full compliance with standards and regulations.

In an enterprise without borders, identity has become the new security perimeter and the Citrix partnership with Veridium is an innovative new approach. A password-free biometric authentication platform. No passwords, no swipe cards, no tokens. Just you and your smartphone for seamless and secure access.

By integrating biometric authentication into your identity access management strategy, you can provide your employees with a slick, single-step, secure login process. The Veridium platform simplifies access across multiple Citrix environments and Active Directory.

Now, from the moment employees log on to the moment you shut down, the complete experience is password-free. Unlike other 2FA solutions, Veridium eliminates the most vulnerable aspect of logging on, relying on what you know, which is typically a password. Most solutions start there and layer on a token, PIN or a push notification. While that sounds more secure in principle, traditional 2FA has not reduced the devasting breaches we read about almost daily.

Not only is biometric authentication more secure but it eliminates the costs associated with tokens and password resets. “At Microsoft, they spend over $2 million in help desk calls a month helping people change their passwords.”

We think there is a better way forward with biometric authentication. That’s why Citrix has partnered with Veridium. If you join me on Nov 8th for this webinar, Ready, Set, Authenticate, you can see the solution in action.
