PKI Certificates vs. Using Username and Password

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a system that allows you to encrypt and sign data for better security purposes. PKI certificates digitally authenticate the identity of a user in order to ensure safe use of an account, device or service. PKI provides a safer way for a known user to securely connect to both public systems like web pages, as well as private systems like VPN’s, wi-fi and other forms of multi-factored authentication systems.

Usernames and passwords are becoming a thing of the past for modern businesses. PKI certificates at the same time are becoming more prevalent and cost-effective giving more reason for companies to throw out the standard username and password as their authentication mechanism.

How Foxpass can Help HR and Engineering Teams

Posted by Julie Villanueva on Jun 3, 2021 11:16:49 AM

As an HR Administrator or Manager, there are many protocols to consider when onboarding, off-boarding, and giving sensitive information to employees. Here, we explore  how a privileged access management (PAM) system like Foxpass helps to better keep breaches from previous and current employees from happening.

Off-boarding Employees:

Human resource teams constantly onboard and off-board new employees. But when employees leave a company, they take with them valuable information like account logins, wifi passwords, and portal/terminal entrances. According to Forbes, improper employee off-boarding can cause big cybersecurity risks such as  data loss, compliance violations, breaks in confidentiality, data breach, ruined reputation and wasted spends. 

Our Cloud-Hosted LDAP is an employee directory that helps with onboarding and off-boarding employees by keeping their credentials and access permissions in a centralized location.This helps with keeping an organized account of who does and does not have privileges to prevent  high potential for security breaches.

Onboarding Employees 

There is an even higher risk with current employees to third-party cybercriminals who aim to break in through methods like malware. According to Security Intelligence, over 75% of security breach incidents come from insider threats. Teams must also think about managing access to those inside the business. 

Cloud-Hosted Radius enables individual users to be assigned with permissions. It gives power back to the administrators to give and take away the amount of access an employee may have to an account or device. 

Another solution is Single Sign-On (SSO). This allows employees to automatically log in to all accounts through a single login. As an admin, you can also give and take away an employee’s login credentials via SSO after they are done with the account. 

Conclusion: PAM as the end-all-be-all solution

PAM makes it easier for HR teams and lessens the worry of potential threats. Foxpass offers Cloud-Hosted LDAP & Radius and SSO, for your business to protect your information from anyone that once had exposure to your information. And if you use Google Workspace, Okta, or Office365 in your HR workflow, we now integrate with these services.

Introducing Foxpass’ Single Sign-On Feature

Posted by Julie Villanueva on Apr 20, 2021 9:24:13 AM

Organizations these days use many different cloud services and third-party Web applications. It’s cumbersome for their employees to type in username/password (and MFA) every time they need to log in to these Cloud services/Web applications. Single Sign On (SSO) solves this problem by letting a user login once such as to their Identity Provider network (Foxpass) and then reusing this information to log these users to various Service Providers (such as AWS or Google workspace). This means less context switching for users as already logged in Foxpass users can now login to other service providers at the click of a button.
