Orion Advisor Services Taps SecureAuth to Protect Financial Account Data for Its Registered Investment Advisors and Their Clients

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - December 09, 2015) - SecureAuth Corporation, the world's premier innovator of adaptive identity and information security solutions, announced today that the company has been enlisted by Orion Advisor Services, LLC ("Orion") to handle the protection of its Orion Connect platform. The portfolio accounting service provider will utilize SecureAuth's™ IdP program to provide authentication measures for the company's client-accessible portfolio management system.

Orion Connect allows RIA firms, TAMPs and broker-dealers to generate performance reports, generate advisory fees, and utilize model portfolios to execute trades across all the managed custodial accounts they manage for their investor clients. Orion also offers its advisors a customizable Client Portal for their end-clients, which can also take advantage of SecureAuth IdP's Multi-Factor Authentication.

CEO of SecureAuth Craig Lund stated, "Our first priority is always the security of our clients, and we are honored to provide Orion with our IdP technology. We believe our product's Multi-Factor and Adaptive Authentication will meet Orion's security needs and provide peace of mind that the company's valuable data is protected."

SecureAuth IdP is an identity provider and access control solution that easily integrates with existing security technology, on any platform -- whether it be in the cloud, on the web, via a mobile device or through VPN. The program utilizes Adaptive Multi-Factor Authentication and Single Sign-On in one solution to ensure user access control for all applications, while maintaining ease-of-use. With advanced features such as Adaptive Authentication to examine the context of each request and user self-service tools, for self-enrollment and password resets, SecureAuth IdP improves security while also lowering help desk costs.

By utilizing SecureAuth IdP technology, Orion continues to lead portfolio accounting providers in innovative solutions by being the first to provide advisors with Multi-Factor Authentication. Given the sensitive financial account information Orion stores, adding multiple layers of security is another step towards providing advisors and their clients' peace of mind to go along with a top-of-the-line technology experience.

"Being proactive about increasing the security around the important information we store for advisors and their clients is a critical area of focus for us," said Eric Clarke, CEO of Orion. "We believe the new SecureAuth Multi-Factor Authentication integration provides advisors with the most secure portfolio accounting experience found anywhere."
