Centrify Risk-Based Access Service
Identity security company Centrify announced at RSA 2017 the launch of its new Risk-Based Access Service, which provides machine learning capabilities to provide a risk score on a user's behavior for access and authentication decisions. Chief Product Officer Bill Mann said this approach would help companies better tailor security policy to each user's behavior, providing for better flagging of risky behavior.
"We're helping IT professionals minimize the risk of being breached — with immediate visibility into account risk, without poring over millions of log files and massive amounts of historical data," Mann said in a statement. "And thanks to our broad set of enforcement points that include applications and IT infrastructure, we can enforce risk-based policy in real-time, at the point of access. This means high-risk threats can be blocked, while low-risk users get authorized access to apps, privileged credentials, or privileged sessions."
