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.

HID DigitalPersona is highly suited for integrated Windows login; it makes it easier to manage and administrate. HID DigitalPersona is not very useful for integrating with third-party applications, but it makes the windows login integration easier and more convenient for everyone who is working on the device for work.

Digital Persona is well suited for our environment. With the utilization of the password manager and the biometric readers, our users feel more at ease knowing that their passwords are more secure than ever. By using the biometric readers for MFA purposes, our users are engaged with our systems more and creating more complex passwords. The only time we have seen this solution not be well suited in our environment for the way we utilize it is when a user does not want to provide their fingerprint for their security.

If you need a biometric reader and a password manager in several applications with templates, this works well. If you are needing to use this in Chrome, the extension does not work so well. Most of our issues have come up with the Chrome extension and this can be cumbersome to keep updated, particularly in a provisioned environment.

DigitalPersona has been a great help, especially in departments where users do not have permanent workstations and tend to move around a lot. We have had some issues with the Chrome extension not always working as expected, but we believe we have the issues worked out and now working.

The solution is solid. However, there are "modern" 2FA solutions that are more nimble than Crossmatch. As an example, most users would prefer to have a push notification sent to a smartphone for second-factor authentication. We have tested Cisco DUO and find this solution to be more attractive from a usability perspective. It allows for two-factor authentication without having to rely on a physically connected biometric reader.

It is great for Windows authentication and works with many other applications. In fact, the FDIC was here this past week and they were impressed in our utilization of the DigitalPersona software. It does add an extra level of security here at the bank and that is very important considering all of the financial data that we have here.

Well suited for any office that handles any PII or sensitive data, as well as any office that performs cash handing or financial transactions. We strictly enforce biometric authentication for all Human Resources, Treasurer, Finance, Purchasing, and Collector offices within the county.

We have a few users start with DigitalPersona and then stop using it. The cases generally involved 1 or 2 things. One, dry skin or smooth fingers have caused some problems with the readers detecting the user's finger print. When the reader became hard to use the user stopped using it. Two, users didn't need to login to a variety of systems. Users that don't enter credentials throughout the day didn't find much value in the system since they generally logged on in the morning and after lunch and that was all.

It is probably more appropriate for departments that have multiple applications and where productivity is essential (a call center for example). However, every employee would benefit from this, just some groups might benefit more. If a user goes between 5 workstations or applications every day then saving that user the 15-30 seconds it takes to log in will benefit that individual more than a user that only logs into one computer once a day.

Enrollment is easy and IT departments benefit greatly because passwords are not a lot easier to manage.

In the business world, it's a very useful tool to allow users to manage their passwords more efficiently. I wouldn't recommend this to any organization with lots of custom applications. It works well with most basic applications and web login sites. But custom applications require additional configuration from their developers and most are not supported.

It's great when you can't find a password and you need to login ASAP. DP is there to assist. When you have so many employees and the first of the month comes and they have to change their passwords, DP saves it for them for easy access next time they login. Finger reader doesn't always read your finger if your finger is dirty or the product is dirty. It's a hit or miss at times.

It works very well with a stable workforce with low to moderate turnover. Although user setup is relatively streamlined, Digital Persona wouldn't be nearly as effective in an environment with high turnover or many independent contractors requiring access to different applications and environments inside of the organization.

Overall happy with it. Still in Pilot so hard to give an example where it functions less appropriately. Only time will tell how it fairs. But overall we have been happy with it. Now that we are getting new laptops with biometrics scanner build into it. So we will see how it fairs.

Digital Persona is well suited for situations where auditing is required for processed transactions on internally written applications and to automate and speed up authentication of users who must repeatedly log into a system or application throughout their work day. Digital Persona is less suited for scenarios where user authentication throughout the day is minimal as this does not justify the fingerprint reader or the licensing expense for each user.

In a Microsoft Windows Active Directory network that has users who log into various websites with ever changing passwords, DigitalPersona Altus makes it simple for the user to manage getting access with just a finger print.
