What is HID DigitalPersona?

The HID DigitalPersona multi-factor authentication software offers a new way to provide authentication services to users. Whereas traditional 2FA/MFA solutions are stuck on “what you have/what you know”, DigitalPersona leverages an array of authentication methods to access public and corporate network resources. Enterprise users can gain access to their cloud applications, such as Microsoft 365, VPNs, corporate networks, Windows desktops, and Citrix applications . Consumers can confirm their identity and authenticate transactions.

Balancing security and usability, HID DigitalPersona boasts one of the widest arrays of authentication factors in the industry. This includes one-time passwords, mobile-based push, smartcards, security keys, risk- and context-based methods, and biometrics, such as fingerprint, face, and behavioral keystroke.

The HR department and the IT help desk will have less work to do as a result of fewer requests for password resets and login problems for staff members utilizing fingerprint scans or PINs. We can now concentrate on more strategic endeavors as a result. By integrating HID DigitalPersona with e-signature systems, we can enable staff members to safely use their fingerprints to sign critical documents like NDAs or contracts. This gets rid of the need for paper-based workflows and streamlines the approval process.

its almost surreal that it provides so many features under one umbrella. Multifactor authorization helps in easy authentication. VPN makes sure no one can access your exact location and biometric login makes sure no on else but you can gain access to your system.

We can do away with the need for separate logins for individual applications or system because DigitalPersona support multiple login methods, such as fingerprint , PIN, etc, with their preferred biometric or secure credential, I can access anything streamlining the login process and decreasing password fatigue. For basic authentication method , we only need to train on one system, because DigitalPersona across multiple platforms, by doing this , training time is reduces and uniform security procedure are maintained throughout the company. Using fingerprint scanners for biometric authentication removes the need to type and remember complicated passwords, so that we can access the work applications more quickly.

We personally used the Single sign-on, biometrics and windows/mobile login for multi-factor authentication. Apart from small hiccups for password changes or adding new devices for existing employees, we never faced any problem for signing in or authenticating ourselves into our system or office. It has a user-friendly UI which makes transition easier for the new users.

We are a IT service provider so its obvious we use all kind of software and have crucial and confidential clients data which if misused can lead to really bad consequences. With its enhanced encryption users can use any method to login into their system. We use it for everything from mobile devices to mac and we are never disappointed.

We use HID DigitalPersona to speed up Windows authentication with biometics. Our users love logging into their workstations with just a fingerprint. In other cases, we can leverage the software to implement multi-factor authentication to Windows for users that need extra security. The web browser password manager is also well used.
