Veridium

Overview

Okta and Veridium work together to seamlessly and securely authenticate employees and customers using biometrics, including native (face or fingerprint), 4Fingers TouchlessID, and third-party biometrics, on their mobile devices. When a user successfully authenticates via the Veridium platform, Okta then authorizes their access requests according to defined policies, including deciding which use cases require step-up authentication (for example, those involving the transfer of sensitive information). The secure MFA-backed solution lets users easily and regularly authenticate to apps (cloud, on-prem, and other systems) and secures transactions at scale.

The Challenge

  • Companies with employees who work remotely and handle sensitive information are at constant risk of credential-based attacks like phishing
  • Enterprises need to increase security for employees, customers, and transactions without negatively impacting the user experience
  • They need flexible security tools that let them standardize strong authentication across diverse environments, including employees using their own devices
  • Enterprises in highly regulated sectors like finance, healthcare, and government are often required to employ rigorous security protocols around user access

The Solution

fingerprint shield

The Okta + Veridium integration combines the leader in identity and access management with frictionless mobile-first biometrics to enable secure passwordless authentication

multiple user profiles

Okta and Veridium work together to provide customers with digital passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA) and a seamless, customizable user experience, backed by leading-edge biometric security

Federated Single Sign-On

Customers and employees can easily enroll on their own devices for a convenient single sign-on (SSO) experience to sensitive assets

MFA for Apps.

Enterprises can reduce risk from credential theft, and comply with government or industry regulations like multi-factor authentication requirements

Tools

Enterprises reduce overall cost of ownership and increase efficiency with no additional hardware requirements

Keep the user experience smooth and secure

When authorized users request access to a sensitive service, Okta and Veridium work together to seamlessly and securely authenticate them. An initial access request for a resource first goes to Okta for authorization. Okta redirects the request to Veridium, letting users capture and authenticate using their biometrics, including native (face or fingerprint), 4Fingers TouchlessID, and third-party biometrics, on their mobile devices. Once the user successfully authenticates via the Veridium platform, Okta can authorize the access request according to defined policies.

Provide convenient, secure bring-your-own-device (BYOD) access for employees

Employees benefit from a secure sign-on process that uses their biometrics to let them easily and regularly authenticate to cloud apps like Office 365, legacy apps and systems, Citrix Workspace, and more. The secure MFA solution eliminates password headaches, improves employee productivity, and meets strict compliance requirements for highly regulated industries.

Reduce risk with secure transactions

Strong customer authentication (SCA) capabilities secure transactions at scale, helping companies minimize the footprint for credential-based attacks, identify and eliminate internal and external threats, and otherwise reduce risk and meet Revised Payment Service Directive (PSD2) compliance requirements and compliance challenges. Okta policies define which applications require additional authentication (for example, those involving the transfer of sensitive information), and can require step-up MFA through Veridium. This authentication challenge can override user preferences, for example requiring fingerprint ID even if a user prefers FaceID, and Veridium can destroy stored files after the transaction (e.g. fingerprint imagery), for additional security. When an account is deactivated within Okta, that user’s access can be automatically revoked by the VeridiumID server.
