BlackBerry is enabling a new breed of Trusted Authenticators. The BlackBerry® Dynamics Secure Mobility Platform provides a rich set of APIs that allow select developers to introduce apps or hardware to authenticate other apps in the BlackBerry ecosystem. These Trusted Authenticators are able to leverage many innovative authentication methods such as SSO and two-factor/OTP, smart cards, biometric authentication, etc.
Authentication is the first line of user experience, so it is a critical part of user satisfaction. The BlackBerry Dynamics Trusted Authentication Framework lets IT provide a superior user experience because it allows easy integration of new and innovative authentication methods as they emerge.
Different parts of an organization may require different types or depth of authentication. One team may need sophisticated multifactor, while another may be fine with a simple password. The BlackBerry Dynamics Trusted Authentication Framework gives IT choices and the control to pinpoint authentication solutions to specific team requirements.
With BlackBerry Dynamics Trusted Authentication Framework, IT can introduce new authentication methods tomorrow, and benefit from cost savings today by leveraging existing two-factor authentication infrastructures and potentially reducing the costs associated with hard tokens. The Trusted Authentication Framework opens the door to enhanced, innovative authentication methods, while increasing flexibility and reducing costs.
The Trusted Authentication Framework is made possible by the unique secure inter-app communication capabilities offered by the BlackBerry Dynamics platform. Your chosen Trusted Authenticator works right out of the box with all of your BlackBerry-secured apps, requiring no code creation or modification. Organizations that have licensed BlackBerry Dynamics can even leverage the Trusted Authentication Framework to build their own custom authentication methods in-house.
