Access Control Identity Authentication


SC Magazine recently reviewed some of the security industrys most innovative access control measures including identification, authentication, and authorization. Some of these innovators offer biometrics as a way to authenticate and authorize an identity. While it may not be the most cost efficient way to secure someones identity, it is certainly one of the most accurate. Other security measures include authentication and mobile security. Some of the winners include companies such as Eyelock and BehavioSec, which specialize in biometrics and behavioral biometrics. These companies have set themselves apart by thinking outside the standard verification measures and inventing way to test a persons identity in a ways that are unique to the persons real identity.

While biometrics are the way of the future, most companies are not quite there yet or find that biometrics are a bit extreme for their industry. As compliance regulations get stricter and consumers security expectations rise, businesses must learn how to think out of the box when it comes to security. Some companies may have the luxury and budget to afford fraud prevention systems that involve biometrics, but there are some that cannot. For businesses that cant afford biometrics or find them irrelevant to their industry, there are other options. Companies concerned with security commonly use single sign ons, passwords, and security questions to verify accounts. Consumers have become accustom to these types of security measures and have found that sometimes they are not the most appropriate for fighting all fraud. Social media and mobile devices have made passwords and security questions almost obsolete. Even with secure accounts that ask for passwords and questions, consumers are still getting hacked and facing fraud.

EVS has developed a way to think outside of the box of normal security questions. Our KBA security questions are created in a way that only the true identity holder can answer them. They are not the usual What is your High Schools name type questions. They are mastered in a way that even if a theft has your full information, they would not be able to answer them correctly. This type of identity authentication is affordable and relevant to all industries. Consumers will not have to adjust to new types of testing measures, because they are so similar to tradition measures with a smarter twist.
