Beyond Identity and Atlas Identity Announce Strategic Partnership

Beyond Identity has formed a strategic partnership with Atlas Identity to resell and provide managed services for Beyond Identity in the UK.

Recently ransomware attacks have been on the increase, close to doubling from the first half of 2020 to the first half of 2021. Password compromise is the number one cause of ransomware attacks and other data breaches, and stolen credentials are at the heart of 85% of all cyberattacks. Beyond Identity addresses this by entirely eliminating passwords as an authentication method. When passwords don't exist, organizations can slam the door on all credential-based attacks.

With the Beyond Identity Platform, organizations can eliminate passwords and cryptographically binds the user's identity to their devices. This is done using asymmetric cryptography, which is the same proven, secure, and scalable technology used to protect trillions of transactions daily across the internet. Beyond Identity extends the chain of trust established with TLS (modern day SSL) to end users and their devices. In this way, it is possible to verify the user's identity, confirm device trust and enforce risk-based access controls, all while making passwords obsolete.

"Beyond Identity is delighted to partner with Atlas Identity, a leading UK consultancy who provide best-of-breed cloud-based Identity solutions as-a-service. Atlas Identity have a proven track record of providing cloud-based identity solutions to meet customer requirements, deliver tangible improvements in customer environments and rapidly deploy solutions. They have a deep technical knowledge and broad project experience to support clients with delivery of Beyond Identity solutions" says David Ashfield, EMEA Channel Manager for Beyond Identity.

The setup of Beyond Identity's solution is completed in a matter of hours and integrates with all leading single sign-on solutions.

"Atlas Identity has partnered with Beyond Identity in recognition of the significant benefits they provide for organizations that wish to achieve a truly passwordless IT environment. Their ability to provide a smooth user experience across a wide array of devices is a key differentiator in our view. The deep integration that Beyond Identity has built with Okta allows our customers to quickly and easily deploy the solution," comments Stephen Williams, Founder and Managing Director at Atlas Identity.
