Authlogics has been presented with an award for Best Password Compliance & Replacement Specialists from the AI Cyber Security Awards 2019, acknowledging the innovation of its Password Policy Agent and Authentication Suite. Private and public sector organisations around the work are benefiting from Authlogics solutions, to ensure online accounts are operated with compliant passwords that have not been breached, whilst providing a clearly defined path to a password-less future.
Authlogics takes an innovative approach, enabling organisations of all sizes to ensure every employee or contractor has a secure password which complies with the latest NIST SP 800-63B password policy standard. The Authlogics Password Policy Agent analyses password changes in real-time and uses a combination of granular policy controls, a rules engine, a custom blacklist, heuristic scanning. It is powered by the Authlogics Password Breach Database of over 520 million previously compromised passwords to maintain a safe and compliant Active Directory. Furthermore, through the Authlogics Authentication Suite, the company provides organisations with a clear and planned migratory path to a highly secure and convenient password-less logon experience, which crucially doesn’t require expensive biometrics or dedicated hardware.
Passwords are everywhere, but people find them annoying and cumbersome to use. Meanwhile, IT managers are frustrated at the costs of maintaining them and security specialist and increasingly those at board level are concerned that they represent a weak link in their defences. CEO of Authlogics, Steven Hope, explains that: “Concerns over password security are well founded. It is only a matter of time before any password is forgotten or compromised. We are proud that our holistic approach to managing and ultimately replacing passwords has been recognised for this award.”
