Beyond Identity Launches Industry's First Secure Access Platform to Protect Against the Rise in Credential-Based Threats
Beyond Identity announced the release of its Secure Access Platform, a secured-by-design solution engineered to protect organizations from the sophisticated and evolving landscape of credential and access-based attacks. This announcement comes at a critical time when industry-trusted Single-Sign-On (SSO) and Identity and Access Management (IAM) tools are increasingly compromised, as evidenced by recent high-profile breaches involving major players like Okta and Microsoft. 

Beyond Identity's Secure Access Platform is a game-changer, crafted to be a standalone alternative to legacy SSO/IAMs or an integrated platform built to harden the security posture of existing SSO/IAMs. It addresses urgent security needs by combining passwordless, phish-resistant MFA with innovative SSO and risk detection capabilities, ensuring thorough management and mitigation of access risks with a platform that can make security guarantees. 

"We have seen the vulnerability of legacy access management platforms in a series of terrible incidents concerning Okta, and with the recent CISA CSRB report stating major concerns with Microsoft's identity management system, as it played a critical role in China's attack on Microsoft cloud email services," said Jasson Casey, CEO of Beyond Identity. "This challenging security environment demands a comprehensive disruption of workforce access management and highlights the necessity for organizations to implement identity and access management tools that are inherently secure."

Innovative Features Addressing Modern Security Needs

  • Secure Single Sign-On (SSO): Optimized for zero-trust architectures, providing a secure by design, simple to administer, and easy-to-use passwordless user experience.
  • Continuous Authentication: Validate user and device security compliance before authentication and continuously, even during active sessions, to account for risk over time, setting a new standard in access security.
  • Passwordless, Phish-Resistant MFA: Eliminate phishing as a threat to organizations even if users and admins click on malicious links. 
  • Device Posture Assurance: Gain visibility and control over security compliance across all devices, including unmanaged devices, providing comprehensive defenses against external threats
  • Robust Integration Ecosystem: Get more out of your security stack investments by using all risk signals to make risk-based access decisions. Shift security left by not only adding detection and response capabilities to prevention.
