CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sentegrity, the leader in risk-based behavioral authentication, today announced a partnership with BlackBerry to provide trusted authentication for applications on the BlackBerry Dynamics platform. Sentegrity can now be automatically called by any BlackBerry application on launch to modulate the stringency of the authentication requirements based on trusted baselines of user behavior and device integrity.
The risk-based authentication will enable customers with highly-sensitive data, such as those in government, finance, energy and pharmaceutical industries, to extend sensitive data access to mobile devices by minimizing the security risks stemming from the underlying platform or access environment. Sentegrity accounts for platform and environment security and enforces authentication requirements requisite to the measured risk — from requiring no password, to biometric authenticators, to preventing application access, and automatically wiping locally stored data.
“The success of modern enterprise mobility is largely dependent on organizations' ability to secure these high risk mobile endpoints without completely destroying the ease-of-use that makes them such an important asset. Sentegrity is pleased to partner with BlackBerry to offer high-security solutions that remove the conflict between security and usability,” said Troy Frost, CEO Sentegrity.
“Comprehensive and consistent information security is more important than ever in the modern workforce and the Enterprise of Things. We are partnering with Sentegrity to raise both the security and productivity bars for organizations with dual data ownership,” said Mark Wilson, SVP and Chief Evangelist at BlackBerry.
Customers using BlackBerry’s enterprise software platform have the highest levels of encryption and security for mobile application data—both in motion and at rest. With Sentegrity, customers have a solution that protects against unauthorized decryption. In low-risk conditions Sentegrity can ease authentication requirements consistent with enterprise policy to enable faster, simpler data access.
Sentegrity helps enterprises extend their investment in the BlackBerry mobile security platform by expanding BYOD programs to both more devices and more use-cases. With real-time security factored in to sensitive data access there is no need to limit BYOD programs to specific devices types.
Unlike other solutions that attempt behavioral authentication, Sentegrity analysis runs only during protected data access and takes less than one second to perform a risk assessment. Personal BYOD remains totally private while maintaining the high-security of enterprise applications and there is almost no impact on system resources like battery life.
With the Sentegrity mobile app now in BlackBerry Dynamics, any customer can instantly install Sentegrity on BlackBerry-secured devices of any OS platform. This means an organization can easily deploy advanced authentication to their entire mobile workforce.
Here’s what the Sentegrity solution delivers to the BlackBerry Dynamics platform:
Risk-based behavioral authentication:
- Now customers can secure data not just with multi-factor authentication but with the right factors based on contextual risk analysis
Real-time enterprise policy enforcement:
- High-security customers can now enforce enterprise policies previously only enforceable through complete restriction or trust in the users to “do the right thing” (e.g., no public WiFi)
Simple user experience:
- Customers can leverage Sentegrity’s ability to ease authentication requirements in trusted environments to reinforce secure user behavior with simpler access
Sentegrity is the leader in risk-based authentication. By leveraging the latest sensory and machine learning technology Sentegrity replaces control with trust, allowing customers to embrace the freedoms of mobile computing without sacrificing data security. Sentegrity’s non-intrusive security product enables applications to modulate authentication requirements based on real-time risk — stronger authentication and a simpler experience.
