Get risk-based authentication that works behind the scenes

When users request access, the access context is assessed in real-time by our policy engine. And a decision is made to either grant access or challenge it. By automatically assessing each user login attempt, our technology speeds access to important data for the users who need it and are authorized to access it.

What is risk-based adaptive authentication?

Risk-based adaptive authentication considers a user's risk level when authenticating them to access a resource or system. The risk score is calculated by evaluating various factors such as location from which they are authenticating, type of device they are using, whether they are logging in from an IP address for a restricted geography, etc.
