Axiad ID Cloud Launched to Help Organizations Manage Cybersecurity Risks

SAN JOSE, California, November 9, 2016 - Axiad IDS, a leading provider of trusted identities for enterprise, healthcare, government and financial organizations, today announced the general availability of Axiad ID Cloud, a modular enterprise identity cloud service. Axiad ID Cloud enables organization to issue, manage, and use identities they can trust. It helps organizations protect against costly data breaches and comply with rigorous new mandates. Originally launched to a few select customers across a mix of industries in 2015, Axiad ID Cloud, along with the company’s Identity and Access Management portfolio, will be on display in Booth #16 at the National Health-ISAC Cyber-Top Gun Summit 2016.  

“Organizations understand that they need to trust the identity of individuals and devices accessing their networks to run their business. Whether an organization is working to eliminate the use of passwords to prevent harmful security breaches or meet critical IT security mandates, deploying and operating a cohesive and integrated secure identity solution is complex,” said Yves Audebert, co-founder and co-CEO of Axiad IDS. “As a result, we are seeing a significant shift to a hosted service model like Axiad ID Cloud: A highly-secure identity cloud service hosted in a Virtual Private Cloud that is easy to deploy and manage while lowering risk and the total cost of ownership for organizations.”

Axiad ID Cloud
Axiad ID Cloud is designed to make it faster and easier to cost-effectively deploy and manage a modular and evolutive Identity and Access Management solution — including multi-factor authentication (MFA).  Taking security protection one step further, a virtual private cloud (VPC) is dedicated to each organization’s data to ensure no co-mingling of sensitive data.

“Companies are re-visiting their entire IT strategy because passwords and logins are no longer a secure option to authenticate individuals,” said Sam Lellouche, Axiad IDS Vice President, IAM Cloud Solutions. “By eliminating the potential for human error in the set-up and management of the identification and authentication process, Axiad ID Cloud delivers secure MFA solutions while ensuring predictable cost containment.”

And like all of the company’s solutions, Axiad ID Cloud is designed to address the specific and varied identity assurance needs of each organization’s user population. 

The U.S. healthcare industry, specifically, is a top target for data breaches, to the tune of $6.2 billion a year.  The need for strong security measures to protect sensitive data from hackers has never been more intense.

According to Audebert, “Healthcare organizations face significant threats to patient privacy and trust that lead to financial loss and risk to their brand. We believe Axiad ID Cloud is on the leading-edge when it comes to helping healthcare organizations address these challenges — head-on.” 

For instance, one large national healthcare organization recently turned to Axiad IDS to implement a strong MFA solution across its more than 6000 laptops and workstations.  Axiad ID Cloud allowed the organization to quickly and cost-effectively implement the highest level of identity assurance possible to protect company and member data using trusted credentials for secure authentication.   

In addition to the healthcare industry, Axiad ID Cloud is helping organizations implement MFA solutions to address a wide range of industry-specific mandates including:
  NIST SP800-171 (government) 
  HIPAA, EPCS (healthcare)
  PCI-DSS, FFIEC (finance)
  CJIS (law enforcement)

Axiad ID Cloud is available now.  For more information contact Axiad IDS at:
