Agility is required in authenticating users. The reason is simple. Access scenarios are too diverse and dynamic to depend on a single means of authentication. Your authentication approach must evolve with access scenarios.

  • Their work activities occur at any time
  • They insist on using their personal devices for work
  • Their use of cloud services is escalating and with that, the security assurance of line-of-sight between users and your business applications and sensitive data is erased
