say cybersecurity one of their biggest challenges

Embrace Zero Trust

With cybersecurity cited as the biggest challenge for UK organisations trying to adapt to hybrid working, adopting an identity-first approach to zero trust is a sound investment. Your organisation can eliminate common cyber threats by applying strong authentication for every user across all business-critical services.

How modern identity helps UK businesses thrive in the hybrid era.

Helps mitigate the most common cybersecurity threats


By eliminating the need for multiple passwords with Single Sign-On (SSO) and adding an additional layer of security with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), modern identity helps stop bad actors at their source and assures every employee that their data is safe.

Gives employees the freedom to work wherever they want


With the right identity solution in place, organisations can provide employees with secure, seamless access to every app both inside and outside of the traditional office – ensuring they have all the tools and support they need to work wherever and whenever works best.

Centralises access management for every user, anywhere


By giving IT teams one place to view, manage, and secure all user access, modern identity simplifies access management across complex hybrid IT environments, improves operational performance and reduces IT expenses across the board.
