White Papers

  • A New Paradigm for Identity Assurance Password requirements have become more complicated and have led to employees to use unsafe passwords. In this new dynamic environment, what's needed are a series of observation and listening posts, so the cybersecurity team can understand which user activity is normal, and which is abnormal - all in real time.
