In an ever-reaching digital world, mobile is transforming organizations by providing employees with the freedom and ease of anytime, anywhere access to applications, resources and information. As the mobile workforce continues to grow, and employees leverage mobile as their primary computing platform, this new frictionless environment will help to optimize productivity, serve customers better and reduce overhead. From inspectors to social services workers to business owners, mobile devices allow employees instant access the information they need to be more effective in performing their jobs.

As organizations shift to mobile ensuring the authenticity of the individuals accessing sensitive information and protecting that information in the field becomes even more important. In order to do this, a trusted digital identity is key for users accessing resources and conducting transactions. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to identity and access management do not translate well into the mobile world. Usernames and passwords can be programmed into mobile devices for quick access, but they are insecure, inconvenient to reset and cause friction for the user. Stronger authentication methods - including One Time Password (OTP) tokens - hinder the mobile user experience, and traditional methods such as smart cards simply can’t be inserted onto tablets and phones.
