EZMCOM recognised in Gartner Hype Cycles for Risk Management 2017 & IAM 2017
EZMCOM, Inc. (“EZMCOM”), an emerging leader in Fraud & Risk Management, Identity Access Management solutions has been recognised in two of Gartner’s 2017 Hype Cycle reports including “Hype Cycle for Risk Management, 2017”, “Hype Cycle for Identity and Access Management, 2017”. EZMCOM was also mentioned earlier in the year in the Gartner publication for “Technology Insight for Public-Key Authentication Tokens”.
According to Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Risk Management, 2017, “Risk management is rapidly maturing as a discipline to harness the benefits of digital business innovation in a safe and secure way.” EZMCOM’s innovative integrated approach to risk managaement comprising of – Identity Proofing, Biometric Authentication, Behavior & Risk-based Authentication as well as Predictive Analytics based fraud detection platform provides notional level of trust in the claimed identity of any user — employee, partner or customer — accessing an organization’s systems and data. Thus, they add value to security and risk management initiatives, such as monitoring, reporting, analytics, identity governance, enforcement of segregation of duties and fraud prevention.
“No user authentication technology is infallible. Session-hijacking attacks can succeed regardless of the authentication method used. Invest in complementary safeguards within a multilayered approach.”
Since EZMCOM has an integrated multi-layered platform for fraud and risk management, users don’t have to stitch fragmented solutions to build a multi-layer defense in depth protection.
Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Identity and Access Management Technologies, 2017, mentions that “Phone-as-a-token authentication methods continued to have a strong adoption trend due to increased mobile device presence as well as their advantages over legacy hardware tokens. Mobile push methods have become broadly available and adopted. IAM as a service (IDaaS) adoption is beginning to accelerate due to a mixture of organizations truly finding faster time to value, and due to Microsoft’s seeding of the market with Azure Active Directory, which is included in enterprise deals for other products.”.
According to Ant Allan, research vice president at Gartner,
“Although device-embedded fingerprint modes are commonly integrated in mobile banking apps, face and voice are emerging as the modes of choice, with some adoption of scleral vein and camera-based fingerprint modes. These will likely gain traction in other mobile use cases in the near future. Behavioral modes are typically consumed as familiarity signals by fraud detection and other analytics-focused tools.”
EZMCOM provides a comprehesive suite of emerging technologies such as Biometric Authentication (Face, Voice, Behavioural), Phone-as-a-Token, X509v3 Public Key Token Identity and Access Management technologies that integrate with various industry leading IdaaS, IDAM platforms.
