Unisys and SecureAuth have partnered to develop multifactor authentication tools for government and commercial customers to control access to their networks.
The companies aim to combine personal identification verification and common access cards with a federated single sign-on system to develop access management services for federal, state and local governments, as well as education institutions and commercial organizations, SecureAuth said Tuesday.
Steve Kousen, vice president for of Unisys’ North American center of excellence, said the services are intended to help customers authenticate users before they gain access to company assets.
Kousen added the companies aim to help organizations control their security and risk objectives and facilitate single sign-on access from any device.
“As organizations expand their use of cloud and BYOD resources and seek a more secure and flexible method for authentication and federation, we expect to continue to develop our solutions to meet their needs,” said Craig Lund, CEO of SecureAuth.
Unisys recently deployed SecureAuth’s IdP for multifactor authentication and SSO in mobile devices.
