Authorization and Authentication
In order to secure your database, multiple layers of access controls need to be added to your database. Authentication and Authorization must be utilized so we know that users are who they say they are and that they can only do what they need to do.
To manage proper Authentication and Authorization we utilize the following access controls depending on your needs and environment:
- DUO Unified Access Security: DUO provides cloud-based software that offers several Authentication & Authorization controls that can be used with many existing products as well as integrated via API into your applications. Multi-factor authentication, policy-based authorization, adaptive authentication, biometric enforcement, location-based Identification, and others.
- Okta Universal Directory: The Okta Identity Cloud is the foundation for secure connections between people and technology. Okta is a Gartner magic quadrant leader providing services like SSO, Multi-Factor Authentication, Lifecycle Management, API Access, Universal Directory, etc.
- Microsoft Active Directory: The most widely used (and abused) Authentication and Authorization tool on the market. Provides LDAP, Certificate Services, Rights Management, Security Policy, and other related services.
