Probaris Announces Identity as a Service (IDaaS) Offering

New Service Offering Builds on Proven PIV and PIV-I Solution for Flexible Rapid Deployments by Federal Trading Partners, Commercial, and Public Sector Entities

PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 07/29/11 -- Probaris has launched its Identity as a Service (IDaaS) offering to allow commercial enterprises, government agencies, and government affiliated parties to quickly and easily deploy PIV Interoperable (PIV-I) credential solutions. Deployment of strong authentication solutions based on the PIV and PIV-I standards are among the most effective means to protect networks, systems, and data. Recent high profile cyber attacks against defense contractors, federal agencies and financial institutions have raised the urgency to secure critical information and infrastructure.

Building on the Probaris ID™ Registration Authority for PIV and PIV-I, the solution makes it possible for enterprises, government agencies, and other entities to establish an authoritative identity store with mappings to even the highest possible assurance levels. The Probaris IDaaS™ solution is powered by integration of the Probaris ID™ Registration Authority with card management and certificate authorities. The offering provides an end-to-end solution for smart card and mobile credentials which can be deployed quickly and easily. Probaris IDaaS™ provides the CIO, CISO, and CSO with the ability to integrate existing identity and access management (IAM), and security components into the managed identity service, along with expert services to integrate them. And, the CFO gets a more robust, leaner, and more effective compliance framework.

Enabling the process, procedures and technology of FIPS 201, the Probaris ID™ Registration Authority provides organizations with the critical business policies and functions to consolidate their identity infrastructure into a single, secure, scalable, identity vault. With this foundation, organizations can then proceed to credentialing and access management for a wide range of tokens and applications.

The U.S. government adopted the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) standard in 2005. All federal agencies have now deployed PIV solutions and are moving toward full compliance with the standard. Millions of federal employees now carry PIV credentials and many federal agencies are now developing innovative uses of the trusted identities to secure their cyber and physical assets.

In 2009 a new standard for PIV Interoperable (PIV-I) credentials authorized commercial entities to issue similarly strong trusted identity credentials. PIV-I is intended for the vast population of commercial workers who must access federal systems in the course of their daily business, as well as, state and local governments, critical infrastructure businesses, and emergency workers.

The Federal Identity, Credentialing, and Access Management (ICAM) roadmap and guidance directs the United States government and relying parties toward a single identity framework based on the PIV standard and related publications. Many agency transactions now require PIV-I credentials for non-Federal trading partners and affiliated parties who access federal systems and facilities.

Enterprise deployment of PIV and PIV-I solutions require significant capital and technical expertise. For those unfamiliar with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and asymmetric cryptography, digital certificates and validation, the learning process is technical and time consuming. Probaris' IDaaS™ removes the barriers to deployment by offering the solution as a managed service. The service is backed by a team of identity subject matter experts, engineers, technicians and support staff that have been responsible for numerous deployments of PIV and PIV-I credentials and the related infrastructure and applications.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
