WebClient Single Sign On and Multifactor Authentication

We highlighted Lily Taharudin’s highly-rated CA Plex/2E Virtual Conference Single Sign On and Multi-Factor Authentication hands on training workshop in our January CM WebClient newsletter, and it garnered lots of enthusiastic feedback. As a result, we dug into the topic a bit deeper and found some interesting (but frankly not surprising) statistics:

According to a Ponemon and IBM security report early last year, the average total cost of a data breach caused by the use of stolen or compromized credentials is $4.77 million, which jumped 77% from 2016 to 2019.

According to Bitglass, 34% of businesses have implemented SSO to deal with this kind of data breach, led mostly by large companies (64%!).

According to a report by Verizon, 77% of cloud all security incidents are attributed to the use of stolen cloud credentials.

Now is a great time to look into SSO and Multi-factor Authentication for your company if you aren’t there already. Lily Taharudin’s hands-on tutorial, which demonstrates how to integrate WebClient with Keycloak openID connect protocol authentication, is a great place to start.
