Boucherle Pick: Proximia Authentication Solution

Proximia introduces ProveID, a proximity-based, persistent, Cloud-centric authentication protocol that reinvents cyber and physical security protocols while making usernames and passwords obsolete. This solution supplies True Mutual (bidirectional) Authentication (PKI certificates-based) and can be deployed in fixed buildings/campuses and even mobile assets. This technology ushers in a new paradigm of personal authentication using wearables, smartphones and growing IoT devices in the workplace, as well as existing physical security investments of cameras, barriers and motion detection. Some 90% of cyberattacks leverage “social engineering,” phishing schemes, weak passwords and usernames. If a data breach occurs, these can be captured, used or sold across the dark web. The right authorized person, in the right place at the right time is the definition of a solid cyber/physical security program. IoT is here to stay. Leverage legacy systems and get onboard!
