Partnership Announcement: Callsign and Identity Methods join forces
Callsign and Identity Methods announce partnership aimed at working in the Open Banking and Retail sector
London, February, 2018. Callsign, the leading artificial intelligence-based authentication platform for enterprises, financial institutions and consumer-facing digital services has announced its partnership with Identity Methods; provider of Identity Management and Data Security solutions.
The partnership is the first for Callsign in the UK and will allow their artificial intelligence-based authentication platform to integrate seamlessly with Identity Method’s consultancy-led approach to Identity and Access Management (IDAM) solutions.
With a global client base, this latest partnership will provide Callsign with greater scope to extend their footprint across the UK. It also allows Identity Methods customers and prospects access to more informed and truly adaptive access control decisions, putting enterprises, and their users, back in control of their identity and access management.
With multi-factor authentication on its own no longer adequate, Callsign’s Intelligence Driven Authentication™ (IDA) solution proactively defends against data breaches and cybercrime. IDA secures employee identities to prevent data breaches occurring and protects consumer identities to minimise the impact of compromised credentials.
Today’s announcement reinforces both Callsign’s and Identity Methods’ commitment to delivering the most secure, yet accessible, IDAM solutions and leaves them well placed to capitalise on the growth in this area.
“As we are aware, there’s huge potential in the UK for more accessible secure authentication practices,” said Paul Anderson, Head of Strategic Alliances for Callsign. “There is real scope in the financial, retail and banking vertical markets, so plenty of opportunities. We chose to work with Identity Methods as they are one of the most experienced and knowledgeable providers of IDAM in the region, and are very keen to work further in the Open Banking sector where we have seen particular success.”
Commenting on the new agreement with Callsign, Ian Collard, CEO at Identity Methods said: “We were looking for a truly unique solution to offer to our customers. Callsign’s IDA solution applies deep learning to device, location and behaviour analytics to paint the complete threat picture of every access attempt. This will enable our customers to protect against threats in real-time by adjusting the authentication journey to the risk, using a variety of biometric and knowledge based authenticators. The partnership supports our strategy of growing our influence in this vertical sector, by providing best-in-class products, in order to maintain trust, reputation and drive take-up.“
Callsign is the leading artificial intelligence-based authentication platform for enterprises, financial institutions and consumer-facing digital services.
