RSA, the security division of EMC (NYSE:EMC), launched the RSA Via™family of Smart Identity solutions this is engineered to combine authentication, identity and access management, and identity governance silos into one solution that allows dynamic, end-to-end identity management across diverse systems and users.

Traditional identity management systems have failed to keep pace with how businesses operate today. They struggle to manage the rapid and unpredictable movement of users, as well as the diversity of new mobile and cloud applications that businesses need.The RSA Via portfolio of solutions is built for today’s dynamic IT environments and the need for identity management to be aligned with business priorities and needs.

The newest offering under the RSA Via family is RSA Via Access,a SaaS-based solution that is designed to allow users to authenticate themselves easily and securely by taking advantage of multiple convenient authentication methods resident within their mobile devices.

Unlike traditional authentication methods,RSA Via Access is built to rely on intelligent context rather than simply static rules to provide a more seamless and agile method of access.

With a hybrid-cloud approach, RSA Via Access also allows organizations to maintain control of the privacy and security of identities, combating one of the main hurdles to cloud adoption.

Say “Yes” to the Business:

Organizations must deliver rapid and seamless access to systems and data so that employees can be productive. At the same time, IT must protect corporate information assets and prove compliance. RSA Via removes friction between business and IT by automating identity management processes and placing them in the hands of the business managers themselves this leads to a simple user experience for authentication, single sign-on, access review and access request.

This facilitates increased business agility and employee productivity, without compromising security.

Shut Down Rogue Access:

It’s common knowledge that the majority of data breaches involve the exploitation of weak or stolen passwords. The ever-increasing diversity of places where identities and passwords are being used to access a corporate network – through the cloud, mobile devices, Wi-Fi or remote locations – burdens users and further complicates security. RSA Via technology is engineered to offer integrated, end-to-end identity management across all systems and users.
As designed, users can easily and securely access data and applications through a range of step-up authentication methods, delivering a familiar user experience across iOS and Android™ devices through the RSA Via mobile application. Organizations can flexibly mix and match convenient mobile-optimized authentication options to harden security and protect against attacks.

Help Achieve Compliance without Chaos:

Faced with increased pressure to comply with laws, regulations and corporate security policies, organizations must respond with effective access controls to help protect corporate information and assets – including privacy-related data such as customer information.

RSA Via is designed to integrate traditionally siloedidentity management systems to create a single, centralized place for all identity information.Organizations are provided with rich context across all resources, users and attributes,facilitating compliance confidence, as well as access-related business processes.
The RSA Via portfolio includes RSA SecurID and RSAAdaptive Authentication, and the three following solutions are designed to do the following:
•RSA Via Access: enables enterprises to regain business agility with secure and convenient access beyond passwords. Contextual, strong, step-up authentication through a smart mobile device is embedded seamlessly with SSO to validate a person’s identity. Users can quickly and efficiently access all of their resources in one place, minimizing the need to circumvent IT guidance and reducing pockets of “Shadow IT.” Users appreciate the unobtrusive nature of the authentication methods, and the business can be assured that resources are strongly protected.

•RSA Via Governance: simplifies the task of governing user access across the enterprise. It helps enable companies to achieve sustainable compliance by automating the monitoring, reporting, certification and remediation of user entitlements. RSA Via Governance, built on the RSA® Identity Management and Governance platform acquired from Aveksa, provides enterprise-wide visibility into user access privileges, automates user access reviews and highlights orphan user accounts and inappropriate user access.

•RSA Via Lifecycle: simplifies and automates how access is requested, approved and delivered. It combines a business-friendly interface for access request and approval, with an innovative approach to automated provisioning across all target systems. RSA Via Lifecycle,built on the RSA Identity Management and Governance platform acquired from Aveksa,provides an easy-to-use service for requesting and approving access, and for rapidly executing user access changes without manual effort across key applications on-premise or in SaaS environments.
