Dynaquest: The Gateway to Inclusive Digital Identity

Top 10 Identity and Access Management Consulting/Service Companies in APAC - 2019

As end-user security threats continue to rise, IT leaders are caught between a rock and a hard place to evolve their identity and access management (IAM) environments. However, there’s no silver bullet when it comes to identity and access management and authentication. With the rising popularity of multi-step authentication, facial recognition capabilities, and biometrics, the use of eight-digit passwords and two-factor authentication process via SMS or a missed call are slowly taking a backseat. In this phase of rapid transformation where organizations are struggling to cope with the advanced security threats, IT solution and service providers are on a quest to help them stay abreast of the latest trends in the identity and access management (IAM) space. Evidently, as one of the key determinants that steer businesses forward, IAM is currently taking a significant leap into the next-generation authentication methods.

In an ambitious bid to help clients understand the dynamic nature of the cybersecurity, IAM solution providers and consulting companies are implementing the latest technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and blockchain to power their suite of services or solutions. The sole objective is to guide organizations across industries in harnessing the true potential of technology to tackle present-day authentication challenges, be it in the workplace or at the customers’ end. With advanced IAM strategies onboard, businesses will grow capable of establishing and maintaining long-term relationships with their clients and employees based on trust and transparency. Authentication solution and service providers are offering seamless integration of authentication products with the existing systems of businesses, leading to faster transmission of data and reduced risk of fraud. Multiple authentication solutions are being designed for various vulnerable areas of business, which can be easily tailored according to the client’s requirements and preferences.

On the other hand, the Internet of Things (IoT) is slowly attaining a future-ready stature in the cybersecurity space. By connecting all the devices in the workplace on a single network, managers are ensuring high-end information security at all levels. In the long run, this is promoting transparency and mutual trust among all employees and leaders. Combined with blockchain, IoT enabled devices are advancing toward an inclusive, blockchain-driven economy; with these technologies at the backdrop, businesses will also be able to safeguard the important assets of a country that together build a strong economy.

Our goal with this edition is to bring together a list of top-performing identity and access management solution and service providers that have consistently proven their mettle in the field of enterprise security.
