The cloud is ubiquitous because it has simplified development and automation exponentially over the years, and emerging tech such as AI and IoT will only accelerate this.
The catch though, is that the very same foundational architectures which drive the cloud’s efficiency, flexibility and cost benefits also serve as its weakest links from a security perspective. The result is the daily march of headlines we all read about - with ever larger and deeper breaches of data and systems.
Circle has partnered with Auth0 to deliver a compelling new offering to radically improve both User Experience and Security with Credential-Free Authentication and Delegated MFA with Circle-of-Trust.
Current approaches to secure authentication - such as traditional MFA and hardware tokens - add login friction for end users and complexity for IT. This in turn results in poor engagement, increased costs and reduced productivity. Circle's integration with Auth0 addresses these user experience problems, to deliver secure authentication that users will actually enjoy and use.
Continuous frictionless authentication of a single unique user across multiple devices, browsers, sessions and contexts without the need for a VPN, 3rd party cookies, usernames or passwords.
With Circle, there is no need for a user to locate a 2nd device, fish out a code or link, continually follow tedious two-step authentication processes, choose lengthy passwords or change them every 90 days. Also gone are forgotten password lockouts or help desk password resets.
Circle delivers unrivaled credential-free authentication by combining:
Based on the context and policies set by Auth0 Actions or the application, Circle can execute multi-factor authentication and identity verification that is delegated to authorized administrators who can re-authenticate the end-point device access as well as verify the end user identity.
This breakthrough Human-in-the-Loop™ delegated MFA is available as a step-up zero-trust re-authentication when needed for high-risk use cases, contexts, and user behaviors.
