Security is required to protect the privacy and integrity of server contents and to ensure that network resources & business process availability are not compromised. For us, security is not a one-time, easy-to-identify issue. It is a process that must be continually refined using audits, access-rights revisions, implementation of new tools, and changes to how data is managed. We have developed a complete and cost-efficient suite of services to address the risks associated with having your systems publicly accessible to the Internet.
By being a full service solution provider we help our clients avoid implementing partial IT security solutions that may end up being more expensive and may not fully protect your organizations’ most vital asset… your information. An organization’s IT Security demands an assessment and integration of organizational IT Security policies and guidelines, data classification and management procedures, permanent risk analysis and monitoring and maintenance of security measures.
Secure credentialing is the process of establishing, verifying, and confirming the background and legitimacy credentials of the members of an organization, whether these are employees, licensed professional, or other. Our secure credentialing services include: Secure User registration, multiple validation services, multiple credential provider, and credential management and security lifecycle.
Your business may require authentication to confirm that a message was sent by a known, authorized person such that the sender may not deny having done so. By using our secure credentialing, a digital signature (PKI digital certificate) becomes a valid digital credential that can serve multiple purposes, such as: client authentication, User Digital Signature, email signing and encryption, VPN authentication, Organizational validation, and SSL – TLS Encryption, among others.
We create, maintain, and manage identity information for principals and provide principal authentication to other service providers within an organization. This facilitates the digital ID management with multiple entities that require several level of protection and integrity of the system users. For example, you are a user with several roles and authentication in multiple systems within multiple organizations. Typically you would have to remember each of your credentials for every system. Our ID Provider for Enterprise can ease this process by integrating with our ID Provider solution since we provide several layers of authentication and transactional non-repudiation based in your organizational needs, thus facilitating secure system access and providing multiple ways to manage your identity data among multiple organizations.
This is one of our principal forms of identification and access control. Initially related to the particularities of our body characteristics, biometrics works with fingerprints, face recognition, palm print, hand geometry, iris recognition, retinal scans, and finger veins, among others. Our biometric implementations provide controls to reduce risk by reducing circumvention and unauthorized access.
Although biometrics has been mostly used in physical access control and time and attendance systems, today the use of biometrics has widened its spectrum to almost every solution that requires authentication of the user performing the transaction. In the security industry, biometrics are used as part of the triangle of authentication, that is: who I am (biometrics), what I have (ID, token), and what I know (pin, password). It is very important to consider, however, that a system is not necessarily a secure system just because it uses biometrics. The implementation of a secure biometrics system requires several controls so it can fulfill the mission of identifying the user in a secure manner, one that is acceptable in a court of law. Our biometric technologies implementation is focused not only in satisfying the normal standards but also exceeding them in a coherent integrated environment with other information security methodologies such as encryption and anti-reverse engineering techniques.
Multiple Factor Authentication
Verifying someone’s identity may be compromised by changing integrity (scarring, aging). This may require verification from multiple sources to obtain sets of information from the same marker or information from different biometrics (for example, voice match and physical scanning). These systems may be integrated to allow more robust security practices. When implementing the triangle of authentication (who I am, what I have, what I know), the completion of two of these three can be considered a secure authenticated transaction. The more methods of authentication used, the higher the level of security is. The secure implementation of each methodology of the triangle is essential for the achievement of maximum performance and guarantees.
Secure Information Sharing
Globalization, and the consequent information sharing on account of business operations being spread across geographical areas, requires ever-increasing levels of security in order to allow for secure communications of your business sources and methods, whether it is an operational requirement or it is mandated by regulation. For example, a small organization may typically have information being shared across multiple users and departments. How do you make sure that the user that sent you an email is in fact that user? How do you protect the data that is being transferred between users? How do you know that the data that you received was not altered by a third party or malicious program? Our technology solutions provide answers to all of these questions by easily implementing our multiple security products and services in a user-friendly environment, always taking into consideration that they are adaptable to meet our client’s needs.
Physical & Logical Access Control
Monitoring and controlling access to your physical and digital property, is an essential requirement for many businesses, especially for the management of large networks. We help our clients create access policies and protocols, and manage tools to identify, authenticate, and authorize this access, and accountability in computer information systems once access is granted. Implementation of our systems will enable your organization to have total control over where a user is granted access, and properly authenticate the user in each area on control. For example, you may want to grant access to a user for a specific door with a specific authentication protocol (e.g. ID Card and pin code), then grant the same user access into a specific computer requiring ID Card and Biometrics, and then allow the user to enter into a specific information system or website requiring a password, biometrics and mobile phone. With our technology solutions you will be able to segregate and implement multiple levels of security in both physical and digital platforms within one or more departments and organizations.
