Alternative authentication: New authentication methods for enterprisesDate: Dec 04, 2012
For years, enterprise authentication has boiled down to one word: passwords. Yet the emergence of increasingly large rainbow tables for password cracking and frighteningly creative password theft via social engineering means organizations can no longer rely on password-based authentication alone.
In this special video presentation, SearchSecurity.com technical editor Randall Gamby discusses alternative and emerging authentication technologies for the enterprise. He reviews the pros and cons of two-factor, or multifactor, authentication and biometric authentication, plus introduces emerging concepts like heuristic authentication, host authentication and artificial intelligence. Later Gamby discusses the key factors in choosing the right authentication methods, and how to ensure an achievable outcome for an enterprise authentication implementation.
