SecureAuth Multifactor Authentication & Identity Protection

SecureAuth IdP provides multiple silent risk checks and evaluates credentials and innovative ways to defeat MFA methods “riskiness” of every access request. This adaptive authentication enables you
to allow access for low risk requests without a MFA step, require MFA for
medium risk and deny or redirect for high risk.

Features

  • 25+ authentication methods to suit any use case
  • Multiple adaptive preauthentication risk checks
  • Step-up authentication only when risk is present
  • Unlimited custom authentication workflows
  • Self-service tools, including self-enrollment, password resets and account unlocking
  • Centralized access control protection.
  • Standards-based, non-proprietary architecture easily fits with existing architecture.
  • Largest inventory of supported technologies allows easy integration.
  • Single sign-on with strong authentication keep users productive

Benefits

  • Increase security without impacting users with pre-authentication risk analysis.
  • Easily tailor authentication process to different user types.
  • Maintain productivity and reduce help desk calls with user selfservice.
  • Improve user convenience and protect against password fatigue.
  • Progress secure access with flexibility and multiple authentication methods.
  • Optimize, rather than replace, existing security investments.
  • Empower users to go Passwordless with high identity confidence.
  • Easily deploy enterprise-wide and eliminate disparate security solutions.
  • Correlate identity threats/data for more holistic and orchestrated protection.

Information security policies and processes
We operate to an internal security information policy process which adheres to applicable legislation and regulatory requirements. This covers personal, sensitive, critical and business data. Our standards are in excess of those set out in Data Protection Legislation, including GDPR.

Our information head is our operations director who is responsible for company wide governance.

Regular, at least annual audits are carried out.

We do not, however, hold any customer sensitive personal data.

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
We follow a 5 step process:

1 Version Control: All changes are recorded, and we maintain full version history.
2 Baseline and release information: Last version released, what it contains, as well as deploy time.
3 Audits & Review: Audit of configuration management and versioning system properly, correctly, consistently.
4 Documented Process: An agreed upon process by all team members to ensure compliance in actual implementation.
5 Build, Integrate and Deploy Scripts: Common, standard scripts that automate the work of building, testing, integrating, deploying, and removing manual errors from the process.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
INITIAL
This stage of our vulnerability management contains minimal processes and procedures. Vulnerability scans are done by a third-party vendor.

MANAGED
This stage is in-house. We define a set of procedures for vulnerability scanning which are carried out weekly or monthly.

DEFINED
This stage the information security team has support from the executive management as well as the system administrator.

QUANTITATIVELY MANAGED
This stage the specific attributes of a program are quantifiable and metrics are provided to the management team.

OPTIMIZED
This stage, metrics are targeted for improvement which ensures that the program continuously reduces the attack surface.
Protective monitoring type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example CSA CCM v3.0 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Protective monitoring approach
Comprehensive 24 x 7 monitoring and alerting. We collect log data on the activities of both systems and users, and review and audit it in near real-time. Coupled with intelligent baselining and effective prioritisation, which enables critical alerts to be raised to the right people at the right time.
We decipher the information generated through monitoring, keep security informed around the reason the output was generated.

We provide regular reports and reviews to ensure the service continues to deliver at the expected levels. This means no issues are missed, and alerts can be analysed and understood after the event.
Incident management type
Conforms to a recognised standard, for example, CSA CCM v3.0 or ISO/IEC 27035:2011 or SSAE-16 / ISAE 3402
Incident management approach
The process follows pre-defined stages:
Incident identification - logged by user or internal operative
Incident logging - user loggin
Incident categorization
Incident prioritization
Initial diagnosis
Escalation, as necessary
Incident resolution
Incident closure
Communication with the user community throughout the life of the incident.
Incident management is not expected to perform root cause analysis to identify why an incident occurred as the focus is on doing whatever is necessary to restore the service. This often requires the use of a temporary fix, or workaround.
