Identity is increasingly considered the foundation block for creating a secure, trusted environment in which users can engage with, or within an organisation - ultimately enhancing their security posture, and ensuring that people have access to the technology resources they need, when they need them. With our technology-neutral approach, we critically understand most offerings on the market today, and provide guidance which transcends a technology-specific view.
Establishing end-user identities, whilst managing the assignment and enforcement of access to enterprise resources.
Workforce Identity is about streamlining and automating processes for provisioning and enforcing access, providing a detailed level of insight and control over access entitlements which have been requested or granted, evaluating and enforcing realtime authentication and authorisation in the context of the resource that is being accessed, and maintaining a comprehensive and valid set of data for enabling these identity and access activities.
We recognise that it is common for organisations to be burdened with legacy applications introducing additional challenges in attaining best practice, and we can assist in navigating these.
Brokering customer interactions to digital channels, whilst establishing the right balance between security and convenience for enabling customers to access digital services.
Customer Identity often provides the first experience that a customer has when interacting with a service, this interaction can make or break their perception of the organisation. Unclear instructions, unnecessary steps, and unreasonable delays can all hinder the experience, leaving customers feeling frustrated and inconvenienced. Modern consumers expect to be able to engage with minimal friction, and may look elsewhere if they are not satisfied with their experience.
We can help assess your digital customer experiences, and overlay an effective approach to identity which will contribute to a positive and lasting impression for your customers, while providing you assurance that transactions are enhanced with the appropriate security controls.
Permitting temporary elevated user access policies to systems and credentials for managing IT infrastructure.
Privileged Access Management is an often overlooked component of IT infrastructure which can be difficult to get right without a proper assessment of the current state. When done correctly, it provides accountability and protection against malicious attacks. In a time when foreign interference and opportunistic attacks are on the rise, an organisation’s approach to Privileged Access Management can quickly become the weakest link in enabling significant data breaches, and sabotage of infrastructure components.
We can help to ensure that your critical assets and business interests are protected without hindering the experience of your IT workforce.
Transforming the customer Identity Verification process through a trusted ecosystem of customers, credential issuers and relying parties.
Verifiable Credentials are a means of providing proof of one’s identity in the digital age. When interacting with an organisation for the first time, many of us are accustomed to presenting the appropriate physical documentation. This will gradually become a thing of the past when the Verifiable Credentials ecosystem has reached a level of maturity. Whether in person or online, Kiwis will be able to provide digital proof of the necessary attributes to relying organisations.
