With every new data breach revealed or costly identity-theft case reported, confidence in data security and the protection of private identity information transactions — and overall trust — erodes. This loss of confidence in online services and reputation can have a direct impact on trust from end-users, customers, employees, partners, vendors and more.
With significant advances in criminal threats — both in sophistication and sheer frequency — all enterprises are urged to bolster defenses, authenticate digital identities and safeguard sensitive information.
Entrust offers five specific best practices — with emphasis on strong authentication, identity assurance, mobile enablement and general layered security — that can help protect against targeted attacks now and over the long term.
Whether it's a smartcard for physical and logical access, soft tokens on a mobile device, or a unique grid card for strong authentication to a VPN, organizations can consolidate all authentication processes with a single, proven solution.

SSL/TLS has been & will be a core enabling technology critical for securing communications. The most significant challenge facing the SSL ecosystem is its implementation. Researchers have recently published reports indicating widespread errors & shortcomings in the implementation of SSL/TLS in mobile applications. These issues often result from flawed use of SDKs or APIs used by developers.
This paper lists necessary steps to take to create a stronger, more trustworthy SSL implementation. All SSL client non-browser applications should follow all these practices to ensure strong authentication, confidentiality & integrity.
Key considerations when developing a strong and customer-friendly approach to intelligent authentication. Bank fraud is on the rise. In fact, according to a recent survey of 43 major banks around the world, it’s not just the number of fraud cases that is going up; so, too, is the value of fraud overall. In large part, this increase in fraud is the result of identity theft scams. Rather than attempting some sort of high-stakes virtual bank heist for all the gold in the vault, most online thieves seem content simply stealing money from every-day customer’s accounts when they aren’t looking.

Learn about the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2), and its expected impacts on the payment services and e-commerce market. Find out what you need to prepare to handle the new strong customer authentication (SCA) requirements under the PSD2.
GDPR compliance can be achieved through a combination of people, processes and technology. This document has described solutions that can help organizations with their GDPR journey. But you can extend that protection and strengthen security controls even further via strong and risk authentication or workload automation for the processing automation of personal data helping you comply with GDPR as well as similar mandates. Regulations tend to set the minimum standards to be required, but in the application economy, open enterprises must ensure due diligence to protect one of the most important and critical assets: private customer information.
As organizations and workplaces evolve, less control is exercised over devices, services, and people, leading to a gap with traditional security tools. Identity not only becomes the critical control point, but the information stemmed from it can be leveraged to strengthen existing processes as well as integrate with other security investments. Join this webinar to learn why identity isn’t simply just a "first step" but also the foundation modern security should be built on. Then explore what characteristics a strong authentication solution should include as we demo Okta’s Adaptive MFA solution.
This case study illustrates how this government agency that employs over 100,000 people and delivers more than $140 billion in public services annually was able to replace a dated system and enable remote access to securely authenticate users logging into internal corporate websites and email accounts.
Much has been written about Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) and its potential to herald a new era of open banking where banks no longer have a monopoly on payment services. Instead they will be forced to provide full access to customer accounts to third parties looking to provide financial services of their own, on top of banks’ existing data and infrastructure.
All of this could prove to be true, just not on January 13th 2018, the deadline for national governments to transpose PSD2 into law. This is because there is still so much to be decided and clarified. The European Banking Authority’s longawaited regulatory technical standards (RTS) on strong customer authentication (SCA) were issued in March 2017 but missing some of the finer details, such as the methods to remotely access customer data and account information and the measures around the use of application programming interfaces (APIs) and screen-scraping.
PSD2 aims to tackle payments fraud and Strong Customer Authentication is the weapon of choice. Unfortunately, Strong Customer Authentication has a downside, it increases the burden on customers who must prove they are the legitimate account holder more often.
This white paper shows how integrated security suites can help organizations achieve high security and compliance with internal and external mandates, while also providing lower out-of-pocket costs, simplified management, and no compatibility issues.
