Strong authentication cannot be emphasized enough today as a key element in enterprise security. As the attacks mount, options for truly secure, low-hassle authentication have shrunk. Tokens no longer represent the only approach and have many drawbacks including ongoing TCO and possible hacks. Learn more about other potential solutions to authentication. In this webcast presented by InformationWeek and moderated by PwC, a large global consulting firm and Softex, Inc., an experienced provider of security software anchored with multi-factor authentication, attendees will learn how to leverage existing industry solutions and industry standards in deploying a low-cost solution for authentication.
Use cases including leveraging the Trusted Platform Module built into most enterprise PCs will be reviewed with specific steps on setting up the TPM, the role of tokens vs. the TPM, the strategies for deploying the TPM and cost analysis of the TPM and software versus other options.
Concerned about figuring out whether this solution is really cost-effective? An ROI calculation will be shown with tips on evaluating your own ROI. Experts also will address the software side of deploying the built-in TPM, including initial provisioning and lifecycle management. Do TPM deployments work for large numbers of users? PwC and Softex Inc. both will address that issue with examples, and each will talk about future deployment opportunities for enterprise seeking a way to end the potential for disastrous breaches.
