Smart devices, mobile phones and tablets are becoming the control hub for the myriad of connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) – as are bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in many organizations today. But this is creating unique and heightened security risks for IT professionals, such as higher exposure to data breaches, malware and compliance violations. BYOD is no longer an industry trend; it’s a fact of life for enterprise-wide operations and the IT organizations that must support them.
To give companies a comprehensive approach to security, HID Global has collaborated with Microsoft to enable certificate-based authentication in Azure Active Directory environments by integrating Azure AD CBA with Crescendo® smart cards and security keys as well as centralized credential management with the cloud-based WorkforceID™ Digital Credential Manager.
