SecureAuth Provides Mobile Access Management for Android Users

SecureAuth IdP for Android Enables End Users to Download App to Enact Two-Factor Authentication and SSO While Enterprise IT Maintains Control

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/04/12 -- SecureAuth, a leading provider of identity enforcement technology for the enterprise, today launched SecureAuth IdP for Android, a Mobile Access Management solution that addresses the escalating use and security vulnerabilities due to bring your own device (BYOD) within the enterprise, and IT's need for a consistent method for managing and enforcing identity and application access management policies. SecureAuth IdP for Android allows users of Android devices, which Gartner states represents 72% of worldwide mobile sales, to download an app and implement their own identity and application access management while enterprise IT maintains control of access policies.

"Companies are looking for ways to deal with BYOD where both corporate data and personal applications reside on an employee's smartphone or tablet device," stated Sally Hudson, research director of Security Products and Services Group at IDC. "However, as the number of mobile endpoints with sensitive corporate data increases, so too does the need to secure the data."

"Managing devices, usernames and passwords, and remote access to corporate applications has become cumbersome for IT and left the enterprise unsecure," stated Garret Grajek, chief technology officer at SecureAuth. "SecureAuth IdP for Android significantly streamlines this Mobile Access Management process by offering a client-less Mobile Device Management (MDM) whereby the enterprise receives the protection of MDM with the flexibility of BYOD. The enterprise gets the best of both worlds by allowing end users to take an active role in their identity and application management to securely use their devices at work, while IT maintains control of corporate access."

Technical Information
SecureAuth enables enterprises to convert their existing web, SaaS and network applications into secure and configurable Android apps. Users download a SecureAuth for IdP Android app that can be pre-configured or dynamically modified to authenticate a portal, VPN or SaaS application. After a one-time registration process is complete, the app becomes a one-touch window to all corporate resources and offers two-factor authentication.

SecureAuth IdP for Android is based on the Android's Dalvik cross-platform runtime engine and the existing default browser. It grants SSO from any Android device from high-end smartphone to low-end tablets.

Additional technical specifications are available from the SecureAuth IdP for Android Product Brief.

Additional Resources
A comprehensive evaluation of the mobile enterprise and its challenges is available in an IDC report, Enforcing Identity Access Management in Cloud and Mobile Environments available free by clicking Request IDC Report. Sponsored by SecureAuth, the report is a valuable resource for enterprises looking for a simplified, flexible yet secure method of identity access management.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
This week, the team assembled in NYC for @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015. For the past four years, this has been a must-attend event for MetraTech.

Over the course of the show, we discussed the types of challenges we will collectively need to solve to capitalize on the opportunity IoT presents.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
