Herkimer County in New York has selected BIO-key’s PortalGuard IAM platform to provide its workforce with secure access to mission-critical data.
Herkimer County sought a flexible and agile IAM platform to add Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to its security stack to support cybersecurity compliance requirements without disrupting its users’ workflows.
Solution flexibility was essential to the Herkimer project because its user groups’ experience levels varied, so it needed a solution that provided enhanced security and optimal ease of use.
PortalGuard enables the county’s IT team to leverage the platform’s 17 available authentication methods to allow administrators and users to choose the method that best fits its workflow and access scenarios.
“We are proud to add Herkimer County to our growing community of county government customers,” said Mark Cochran, President of BIO-key – PortalGuard.
“Especially in the COVID era, getting ahead of emerging threats is a top priority for county governments. We hear from our customers that to be successful in this endeavor, they need to thwart the sophistication of today’s cyberattacks with robust access security controls to verify users while also improving the user experience.
“By leveraging the PortalGuard IAM platform designed for the modern workforce, county governments can secure access to their critical data cost-effectively and meet their compliance requirements without negatively impacting their users.”Click below to share this article
