Accellion, Inc., provider of the secure content communication platform that prevents data breaches and compliance violations from third party cyber risk, today announced extensive authentication support for organizations protect their PII, PHI, and IP from unauthorized access.
Organizations significantly reduce the risk of a data breach or compliance violation when they require users to confirm their identity prior to accessing confidential information stored in content repositories and critical business systems. Any barrier to sensitive content however must balance security with simplicity. Access to content should be challenging enough to prevent unauthorized access, but if authentication is too cumbersome or unwieldy, employee productivity suffers.
“Authenticating a user’s identity before providing access to sensitive information is critical for protecting customer data and intellectual property,” said Yaron Galant, chief product officer with Accellion. “By supporting multiple authentication methods and protocols to accommodate organizations’ evolving security postures, Accellion helps those organizations prevent data breaches and compliance violations.”
The Accellion platform allows organizations to leverage not only their existing password-based authentication solutions but also other key components in their current security infrastructure including HSM, DLP, ATP, MDM, and SIEM. Learn more: security infrastructure integration.
