Join our Founder and Analyst Simon Moffatt on July 20th for our latest industry fireside chat, where he will be discussing the emerging area of SIM based authentication, with Paul McGuire, CEO of tru.id.
Authentication is the main pinch-point to both B2E employee and B2C consumer application access – and its evolution is being driven by the need for secure yet usable runtime login methods that can be privacy preserving and transparent.
Authentication has always faced the conundrum of being secure or usable – yet in today’s modern digital landscape, customer, consumer and citizen based user communities demand both. The distributed and hybrid nature of the modern workforce is also putting pressure on existing authentication methods such as one time passwords and push notifications.
The real threat of “app fatigue” and the often complex and silo’d nature of specialist authentication methods has resulted in a patch-work quilt of login experiences – that are operationally expensive, yet fail to deliver trusted end user experiences.
Is there another way to approach the login conundrum? Could the use of the SIM card as a possession factor could help provide both the benefits of hardware based security – be it tamper resistance or low clone-ability – alongside software based benefits such as rapid deployment and repeatability?
In this fireside chat webinar, Simon and Paul will discuss the emerging modal of SIM based authentication – the capabilities, benefits and future use cases it could solve.
tru.id aims to “transform authentication with SIM security…as a new possession factor API that lets you embed the built-in security inside everyone’s mobile phone”.
