Free Webinar: Evolving Strong Authentication at the University of Arizona
June 27 11am PDT / 2pm EDT
Register Today to Learn the Steps the University of Arizona Used to Fight Compromised Login Credentials
At the University of Arizona, credential strength was a key concern for many years. In spite of implementing stringent (and unpopular) password standards which included password strength checks and lockout measures, the U of A continued to fight an ongoing battle with compromised login credentials.
The University of Arizona's Information Technology Services department (UITS) decided to employ two-factor authentication to address password insecurity within central IT and across campus. Since the initial roll-out, UITS' Senior Enterprise Systems Architect, Gary Windham, has aimed to expand the program to additional users. In this webinar, he describes the challenges UITS is addressing and future plans.
In this webinar you will learn:
1: Hard facts concerning password insecurity
2: Industry trends regarding 2FA
3: The merits of the implementation at the University of Arizona
4: The UITS plan to offer two-factor authentication broadly on campus
Register for this informative webinar on June 27 to learn how the University of Arizona is evolving two factor authentication. Just as importantly, learn about new technologies that make remote access more secure AND easier than the options that have been available until now.
