Beyond Identity Joins Microsoft Intelligent Security Association

Beyond Identity has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), a coalition of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that has integrated each respective solutions with Microsoft’s security products to help joint customers defend themselves against a world of increasing cyber threats.

To be considered for MISA, organizations must be nominated by Microsoft and demonstrate integrations that support the goal of improving enterprise security.

Organizations struggle to secure all the users and devices accessing their SaaS applications, and they need more dynamic control over access to resources depending on the specific configuration of those devices.

Beyond Identity was nominated for membership into MISA based on how its platform uses the power of Microsoft’s Endpoint Manager device management capabilities and combines them with Beyond Identity’s native, device-level security signals to make risk-based authentication decisions. Allowing organizations to assess if a device is managed and secure at the time of authentication helps organizations prevent account takeovers and implement a zero-trust compliant authentication strategy.

Built on the same core platform, Beyond Identity’s suite of authentication products includes:

  • Beyond Identity Secure Work– safeguards an organization’s most valuable SaaS apps and cloud resources by eliminating passwords and restricting access to only secure devices. It ensures that every device is tied to a user’s identity and has the correct security settings and configuration, security software, apps, and programs running at the time of login – before granting access to SaaS resources.
  • Beyond Identity Secure DevOps– closes a massive vulnerability and secures the software supply chain against insider threats and malicious attacks. It allows only authorized developers and their approved, identity-bound devices to commit code changes, ensuring trust, integrity, and auditability for every piece of source code that is built into the end software product.
  • Beyond Identity Secure Customers– a first-of-its-kind innovation that provides software development kits that enable companies to embed Beyond Identity’s authentication capabilities across all native and web applications on any device. This allows any business to offer its customers a zero friction authentication experience without passwords, second devices, or separate application downloads.
