Context-Based & Step-Up Authentication Solutions

Context Based Authentication

Thales' context-based authentication offers convenient, frictionless strong authentication while maintaining the flexibility and agility to add protection with stronger methods of security in higher risk situations.

Combined with "step-up" authentication, context-based authentication optimizes a layered approach to access security by assessing user login attributes and matching them against pre-defined security policies. When security policies are met, users are granted immediate access. When security policies are not met, users are asked to step up security by providing an additional authentication factor, eliminating the risk of unauthorized access.

A step up second factor could be a PKI token or a one-time passcode received via SMS text message, or generated on a mobile device or hardware token, depending on organizational policies.

How Step Up Authentication Works

Thales' SafeNet Access Management and Authentication Solutions leverage configurable, white-box policy rules to enable granular control over the level of authentication required each time a user logs in to an online resource.

The context engine analyzes a user’s logon attributes based on a set of configurable parameters—including geographical location, IP address, time of day, and device recognition—and generates a context assurance level. If a security policy is met, users are granted access. If a security policy is not met, the user may be asked to step up security by providing an additional authentication factor.

Context-based authentication is currently supported by SafeNet Trusted Access.

"We’re beginning the switch to broad use of multi-factor authentication as an important new safeguard for our employees and our enterprise. Security attacks are unrelenting, and we view MFA as a vital and necessary addition to VUMC’s enterprise cybersecurity program."

- Andrew Hutchinson, Executive Director of Enterprise Cybersecurity, VUMC
