ManageEngine Strengthens Its Identity-First Security Offerings


ManageEngine combats ransomware attacks and identity theft with its latest launch of FIDO2 authentication in its on-premises identity security solution.

Cementing its stance in identity-first security, ManageEngine has launched passwordless, phishing-resistant FIDO2 authentication for enterprise applications in ADSelfService Plus, its on-premises identity security solution. It has also launched endpoint MFA for Windows machines and elevated system actions in Identity360, its cloud-native identity management platform.

“As the digital infrastructure of enterprises is expanding due to the widespread adoption of cloud services and remote work, network attack surfaces are also correspondingly increasing. With identity as the new security perimeter, the effort to safeguard the entire network is now translated into carefully authenticating every identity requesting entry into the network,” said Manikandan Thangaraj, Vice President, ManageEngine.

Strong identity management is fundamental in achieving identity-first security, requiring a tactical reallocation of investments in identity and access management (IAM) strategies. “Identity-first security helps enterprises establish enhanced trust and control over their network. ManageEngine aims to fill the gaps of the legacy network-based security approach and, more importantly, help organizations align with the principles of Zero Trust through its solutions,” Thangaraj added further.

ManageEngine Identity360’s MFA for endpoints secures end users’ machines, servers, workstations and critical system actions performed using privileged user accounts. ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus’ FIDO2 authentication boosts identity security by resisting phishing and replay attacks, while improving users’ authentication experiences with passwordless methods.  “FIDO2 authentication helps companies strengthen their grip on identity-first security. It is a secure, user-friendly and cost-effective authentication mechanism helping organizations resist phishing attacks and achieve regulatory compliance,” Thangaraj shared.

Implementing ManageEngine’s phishing-resistant FIDO2 authentication and securing endpoints in the network with recognized MFA techniques make organizations compliant with regulatory standards such as the GDPR, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, the PCI DSS, the CCPA and the PSD2. In addition to meeting regulatory requirements, the adoption of identity-first security enhances organizations’ chances of securing cyber insurance in a fiercely competitive market.
