TrustBuilder updates its Identity Hub for access via one simple touch

"This update is designed to let users replace their often difficult to remember passwords with a simpler solution their fingerprint."
Marc Vanmaele

TrustBuilder, Europe’s leading Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution provider, has introduced the latest update to its flagship identity and access management tool, the TrustBuilder Identity Hub (TrustBuilder IDHub). The latest version introduces wider support across the most recognised and trusted authentication protocols, while adding two new user friendly features - push-authentication and fingerprint scan access.

The TrustBuilder ID Hub is a highly effective, user friendly and trustwortyhy Identity and Access Management (IAM) tool that – for the first time – combines attribute-based access control with cloud identity management. It can deal with both on-premise and cloud applications, while catering for pre-defined users and those who want to use their own identity.

The latest version introduces a step forward for the TrustBuilder ID Hub’s mobile application, TrustBuilder for Mobile – a simple, secure application that enables users to authenticate their identity via a mobile device. It delivers a strong authentication service that is easy to handle and quick to use, while meeting the security requirements of third-party application providers while being.

It provides the regular standard implementation of Open Authentication protocols (OATH) but in addition offers protection against fraud, loss and theft and support under the TrustBuilder licensing umbrella in a white labelled solution that can be branded according to the respective company’s requirements.

TrustBuilder for Mobile can be used when two-factor authentication is required for access to applications, services and application programming interfaces that are protected by the TrustBuilder IDHub.

From now on, the TrustBuilder IDHub is also accessible via a simple finger print scan. Considering mobile devices’ trend towards embedded fingerprint sensors, this update is designed to let users replace their often difficult to remember passwords with a simpler solution: their fingerprint.

With the new fingerprint scanning support, the IAM application is one of true two-factor authentication, combining something the user owns – the smartphone – with something the user is highly identifiable with – the fingerprint.

When a user tries to log onto a company’s application that is protected by the TrustBuilder IDHub, the user will be invited to activate the TrustBuilder for Mobile application. Once the application is activated, the user simply touches the fingerprint reader on the mobile device. This easy tap confirms the user’s authorization to login to the protected application – rapid, user-friendly, but nevertheless highly secure.

TrustBuilder Identity Hub version 9.2 also introduces:

·                     OAuth & OIDC
