MyID Product Overview

Organisations need to protect themselves against the reputational damage, fines and threat to business continuity caused by a data breach.

The most effective way to protect against the number one cause of data breach is to replace passwords with two-factor authentication, combining ‘something I have’ such as a smart card or smartphone with a second factor such as a PIN or fingerprint.

The strongest form of two-factor authentication is a digital identity comprising a PKI certificate issued to a secure device, enabling organisations to be sure that users accessing systems, networks and sensitive data really are who they claim to be.

MyID Credential Management Software

MyID is a feature-rich credential management system (CMS) that enables organisations to deploy digital identities using the strongest form of two-factor authentication to a wide range of secure devices simply, securely and at scale.

Systems administrators use MyID to configure their certificate and device issuance policies, ensuring the right people receive the right digital identities. Built to integrate with infrastructure such as certificate authorities, directories, identity management solutions and mobile device management systems (MDMs), MyID minimises any impact on the existing environment reducing deployment times and operational costs.

For operators, MyID provides all the functions needed to issue credentials and manage their lifecycle. Supporting face to face, centralised and self-service issuance, MyID enables devices to be deployed quickly and in high volumes. Where users need assistance, e.g. to issue a replacement device upon loss, or to re-enable a locked device, MyID provides help-desk operators with simple process-driven features to ensure continuity of service without impacting security.

End users can perform tasks such as collecting new certificates at their own desktop via a simple self-service application, designed to walk users through processes in simple intuitive steps, it effectively reduces operational costs and the need for end user training.

MyID provides full audit and reporting capabilities allowing visibility of who issued which digital identities to which users and on what device, ensuring organisations remain in control of who can access their systems and enabling them to demonstrate compliance with best practice security standards.
