Axiad IDS Takes the Stage at STA’s Securing Federal Identity 2017

Bassam Al-Khalidi, Axiad IDS co-CEO, Brings Audience Behind-the-Scenes of Two Major Use Cases — Global Government integrator and Major Health Company

WASHINGTON, D.C. – June 5, 2017Axiad IDS, a leading provider of trusted identities for enterprise, healthcare, government and financial organizations, today announced Bassam Al-Khalidi, Axiad IDS’ co-CEO and principal consultant, will be taking the stage at the Secure Technology Alliance’s Securing Federal Identity 2017 Government Event on June 6 in Washington, D.C. Mr. Al-Khalidi will be joining a panel of cybersecurity experts to discuss the latest innovations in using secure credentials for authentication and access management.

“We work with organizations in both the public and private sectors, and increasingly we are seeing federal mandates drive best practices when it comes to achieving the highest level of security in credentialing across both sectors.  With this increased security comes added complexity,” said Yves Audebert, Axiad IDS Chairman, President and co-CEO. “The challenge: providing a higher level of security while keeping the deployment simple, fast, and cost effective. Axiad ID Cloud addresses this challenge. The Cloud is the future.”

The dramatic increase in cyber security threats have made this clear: Organizations require strong identities they can trust to conduct business, while customers, employees, and citizens need a less frustrating method to authenticate their identity. This is where Axiad IDS helps. Core to Axiad IDS’ mission and offering is the Axiad ID Cloud which allows organizations to quickly, easily and cost-effectively implement strong, high assurance MFA solutions.

Mr. Al-Khalidi’s panel is on June 6 at 3:30 p.m. EDT. His portion of the panel discussion is titled: The Cloud: A Better Way to Implement Strong Multi-Factor Authentication with FIPS-Compliant Credentials. Specifically, Mr. Al-Khalidi will share best practices and lessons learned using the cloud for high-security, usability, and cost-effectiveness in two different, yet recent Axiad ID Cloud implementations including: 1) a global government systems integrator; and 2) a major health insurance company.
