Axiad IDS Raises the Bar for Security and Ease of Use with Strong Multi-Factor Authentication

Axiad IDS Cybersecurity Experts Invited to Share Expertise with Healthcare Industry Leaders

 SANTA CLARA, Calif. – October 17, 2017Axiad IDS, a leading provider of trusted identity and access solutions for enterprise, healthcare, government and financial organizations, today announced it has been invited to speak at two events hosted by Blue Cross Blue Shield in October. Axiad IDS’ Bassam Al-Khalidi, Co-CEO and Principal Consultant and Jerome Becquart, Vice President of Operations, will address industry leaders to share how the company is helping organizations implement multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions to reduce the risk of breach by authenticating users, devices, and transactions.  Beyond technical expertise, Axiad IDS is providing its customers with the freedom to confidently access online information and perform digital transactions anytime, anywhere and from any device.

“Horizon invests heavily to protect our policyholders’ information and works constantly to ensure that our technology partners are doing everything possible to stay one step ahead when it comes to cyber security,” said Chris Golden, Information Security Risk Manager, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey. “Every year we invite the industry’s foremost experts on technology and security to speak at our Cyber Security Summit on topics like cloud security, authentication and access, and multi-factor authentication. This year we are honored to have Axiad IDS among our speaker line-up.”

Why Strong Multi-Factor Authentication

It is no secret that the U.S. healthcare industry is a top target for data breaches, to the tune of $6.2 billion a year. At the same time, identities based on passwords are no longer enough to protect critical information. Adding to the complexity, usernames/passwords are frustrating for users and compliance requirements are increasing. As a result, innovative MFA solutions are becoming the norm and in some cases, the requirement.

“The challenge for most companies is the deep technical knowledge required to implement a solution that addresses various business risks with appropriate security technologies as well as the bandwidth required to support the solution long-term,” said Al-Khalidi. “Partnering with a trusted identities expert like Axiad IDS takes the burden of implementing and managing a highly secure solution off the internal IT team, allowing them to focus on the organization’s core business.”

Specifically, Axiad IDS is working with healthcare organizations to:

  • reduce risk of breach by authenticating users, devices and transaction (internal and external)
  • enhance user experience to facilitate adoption
  • improve manageability to address skill shortage and reduce costs
  • adhere to rigorous federal and industry-specific mandates, quickly and simply
  • lower complexity, and Total Cost of Ownership through cloud implementation
