EGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Mar 14, 2014) - SecureAuth, a leading provider of 2-Factor Access Control, today announced from the Gartner Identity and Access Management London Summit 2014 that it is expanding its sales operations in Europe, with its award-winning solutions, SecureAuth IdP and SecureAuth 2-Factor as a Service.
SecureAuth IdP was recently awarded the "Best Mobile Identity Solution" at the Global Mobile Awards 2014, announced during Global World Congress in Barcelona, Spain; and was commended by the judges as, "An excellent, successful approach to enterprise user authentication, and a solution to problems that enterprises are desperate to solve."
"Rather than cumbersome and expensive authentication solutions, we offer flexible and more secure options for managing users' identities," comments Craig Lund, Chief Executive Officer at SecureAuth Corporation. "Organizations can use SecureAuth to control identities and access for mobile, cloud, web apps, and VPN resources without hassle or increased overhead costs."
SecureAuth 2-Factor as a Service is the only cost-effective, cloud-based solution that conducts authentication without any on-premises hardware or user information being moved or stored in the cloud.
"More organizations are migrating their information security towards authenticating access to mobile apps and cloud resources making it important that we partner with solution providers that offer the most advanced technology in authentication and identity management," stated Reinier Landsman, Managing Partner, at Cert2Connect, a leading IT security advisory firm serving Europe. "We have found SecureAuth solutions to ideally meet the needs of the European market, from large enterprises who want a quicker method of deployment from a single platform, and mid-market organizations who are looking for a cost-effective cloud authentication service. Together, our goal is to ensure resources are protected while being convenient for end users."
"Our mission is to strengthen the authentication process while making it seamless for end-users to validate their identities and obtain access," commented Garret Grajek, Chief Technology Officer at SecureAuth Corporation. "Our solution addresses the entire authentication process, from credential creation to identity assertion, lowering the risks of attack and eliminating the need for multiple point solution products."
SecureAuth was recognized as a "Visionary" by research and advisory firm Garter, Inc. in its December 2013 Magic Quadrant for User Authentication by Ant Allan, and was also rated "positive" in Gartner's MarketScope for Web Access Management by Gregg Kreizman, published November 15, 2013.
