Integrating Two-Factor Authentication With Network Access Control: Tying User Identities to Access Control Policies
Source: RSA Security
To protect enterprise network resources and secure access to network applications and information, organizations need to ensure that users accessing the network are indeed who they claim to be. The use of two-factor authentication to assure the identities of users gaining network access is essential for secure operations. The Identity Assurance portfolio from RSA, The Security Division of EMC, extends user authentication from a single security measure to a continual trust model that is the basis of how an identity is used and what it can do. It helps organizations to link user identities to access control policies in order to safeguard enterprise information.
