ConfidentID as a Service
Let CSC quickly implement and continually manage your leading-edge multifactor authentication program.
With the rising use of mobile devices, multifactor biometric authentication is fast becoming an accepted method for enhancing security and preventing identity theft and fraud.
However, choosing the right set of biometric factors (such as voice, face, eye and fingerprint recognition), finding the best system, and continually maintaining it can be a major challenge. Many organizations are looking to add biometric security but aren’t sure where to start or how to roll it out to large groups of users.
CSC’s ConfidentID™ as a Service provides an end-to-end solution, available in the cloud with costs based on usage, to help your organization design, implement and continually manage a leading-edge multifactor authentication program.
CSC gives your organization quick access to a powerful combination of biometrics, passwords, one-time codes, public key infrastructure and other techniques to help you focus on areas of the business that need higher security. ConfidentID as a Service will give your organization greater certainty over traditional authentication methods such as passwords, PINs and one-time-password token key fobs. ConfidentID as a Service also gives you greater flexibility. Standard authentication factors with ConfidentID as a Service include:
This solution provides dynamic security levels, enabling you to set higher authentication requirements based on your company’s risk management policies for accessing data or performing high-value transactions. ConfidentID provides real-time fraud analytics, not alerts based on incidents that occurred in the past. Your organization learns about potential fraudulent activity as it occurs.
Ensure Greater Flexibility
ConfidentID as a Service, also available on-premises installed in your data center, is hardware-agnostic and designed to run on nearly any mobile device that provides basic image- and voice-capture capabilities, so there’s no need to invest in specialized biometric equipment.
The system’s underlying service-oriented architecture ensures easy integration with the latest biometric technologies. It comprises two applications: one located in the cloud or your data center, and the other on the user’s mobile device. If needed, CSC’s solution includes a software development kit to integrate multifactor authentication into your own mobile application, or you can use your organization’s own tools and practices.
CSC provides end-to-end services, from helping you determine the best strategy for rolling out mobile authentication to continuously managing the overall process. Further, CSC can provide a full suite of comprehensive Identity Management Services that can help safeguard your systems and data and ensure audit compliance.
Get Expert Advice
Before you begin, CSC’s ConfidentID Consulting Services provide expert guidance and recommendations for the best authentication method to employ for various business use cases. The number of possible use cases in your organization will grow rapidly with the flexibility of ConfidentID.
CSC’s team can help you meet desired acceptance and rejection rates for the various biometric factors. Each set of parameters supports higher levels of security. CSC can help you identify the right balance between risk management and user acceptance, and share best practices for designing an experience that users will embrace. Services also include project planning and implementation for defined proof-of-concept engagements, pilots, preproduction environments and production rollout.
CSC can also recommend cybersecurity services to directly or indirectly improve your risk profile. Looking to the future, CSC can help you evaluate emerging biometric or advanced authentication methods and advise on an integration path as those technologies become more widely accepted. CSC’s service team can then help you build, test and integrate the necessary infrastructure to introduce new capabilities to your users.
ConfidentID as a Service helps organizations avoid the need to rip and replace old authentication systems. CSC’s platform enables new technologies to be added quickly and seamlessly, without disrupting the rest of the solution stack.
Another advantage of ConfidentID as a Service is speed. CSC can help you quickly go live with a proof of concept (up to 100 users) or a defined pilot (up to 1,000 users) on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud, in CSC’s cloud environment or in your data center.
You can measure user acceptance before rolling out the system to a larger user base. CSC configures the system and manages your business authentication policies, rules and security parameters for accessing online services. CSC also analyzes data feeds to evaluate the health of the system environment and address anomalies. Global support services are available 24x5 or 24x7.
CSC will maintain, update and monitor your infrastructure according to agreed-upon service levels. Services include standard reports on user interaction for enrollment, usage, and approved and rejected authentications. Ad hoc reporting is also available.
