SecureAuth, a leader in access management and authentication, announced the general availability of Arculix, next-generation access management and continuous authentication platform. Driven by SecureAuth’s patented risk-based behavioral modeling engine, Arculix provides end users with a frictionless and passwordless digital journey.
The platform considers an identity’s level of assurance based on user, device and browser trust that employs artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to determine anomalous behavior. Arculix enables organizations to accelerate their zero trust initiatives by ensuring the right digital identities have the right amount of access to the right resources while improving user experience by eliminating the need to ask users to re-authenticate repeatedly. It can be deployed as a standalone identity provider or can extend other IdPs, like Microsoft (E3/E5 subscriptions), if customers choose to leverage their existing primary identity providers but need to implement more advanced risk-based continuous authentication.
“With Arculix, organizations can improve digital experience and productivity at a time when identity has become the primary attack surface,” said Matt Ulery, chief product officer, SecureAuth. “Organizations can have simplicity without sacrificing flexibility, enable a zero trust approach and leverage actionable threat intelligence and situational context to deliver the right user experience for workforce and customers. Early adopters of Arculix within the financial and insurance industries have been able to improve user experience and reduce help desk costs while reducing identity attacks including fraud, account take over (ATO) and credential stuffing.”
Arculix generates a risk score at the start of the user journey when logging into a device that is used to grant access to everything the user needs like web apps, servers and services without interacting with another factor check. Risk is re-assessed to provide invisible MFA that uses analytics to deliver a frictionless user experience with adaptive workflows that step-up or step-down authentication based on overall risk.
Key features of the Arculix platform include:
Arculix Risk Analysis – Based on its behavioral modeling patent technology and AI, this system allows for a frictionless authentication process as well as the ability to predict a user’s digital behavior and patterns to preemptively prevent fraud.
Arculix Device Trust – This capability uses analytics to evaluate device context and telemetry to provide a seamless experience to create the user’s digital DNA for resource and app access/usage. Arculix Device Trust is FIDO2 certified.
Arculix Mobile App – The mobile app informs end-users of risk after login based on device and browser fingerprint analysis after login and automatically performs step-up login when a threat is detected.
