Device Trust for Employees And Your Extended Workforce
Gain strong assurance of user identity and real-time device security posture
"Attackers are getting faster so I need to find ways to proactively block access to data in the cloud. But how do you do that when people are working from home, without forcing them into the office, and without asking them to VPN into Salesforce?
With Beyond Identity, I can enforce security hygiene at the very beginning. It’s seamless as long as employees’ systems are secure."

The issues with untrusted devices
Cloud applications can be accessed with any device creating a blind spot for security teams
No ability to control access based on real-time user and device risk
Increasing privacy concerns over MDMs on personal devices
MDMs expensive to rollout, difficult to maintain, and shunned by your extended workforce
Beyond Identity supports all major SSOs and open standards including OIDC, OAuth 2.0, SAML, and SCIM
Beyond Identity's unique benefits of device trust
Establish device trust over managed and unmanaged devices
Go beyond a binary check for whether or not a device is managed. Instead gain visibility into and determine access based on real-time device security posture including firewall, antivirus, biometric enablement status and more.
Protect access to cloud applications with granular risk-based access control
Stop unknown users and insecure devices from accessing company resources with fine-grained device risk signals captured from the authenticating device at time of login. Plus, easily configure adaptive access policies to enforce security compliance.
Stop unknown users and devices from authenticating
Users can't clone, move, or modify the device-bound private key created and stored in the secure enclave of their devices. Beyond Identity gives you the peace of mind that only authorized users are able to access company resources.
Respect user privacy on personal devices
Beyond Identity’s downloadable platform authenticator delivers relevant security context about the device without intrusive or persistent monitoring. Close your security blind spot over unmanaged devices while honoring the user's choice to opt out of putting MDMs on personal devices.
Continuously enforce risk-based access policies
Continuously authenticate every 10 minutes and quarantine any device that no longer meets policy requirements to ensure that all endpoints are secure prior to granting access to company resources.
How to get started
Integrating Beyond Identity is designed to be simple for IT and security administrators. Companies can choose to implement Beyond Identity to any portion of users, even retain existing passwords to ease the transition.
Less than one day:
- Integrate with your SSO. We have integrations with all major SSOs and support OIDC and SAML.
- Sync your directories using SCIM or API connectors.
- Configure your SSO to delegate authentication to Beyond Identity.
Over the next two to four weeks:
- Refine fine-grained risk-based access policies to align with your security and compliance requirements.
- Test with a small group
Complete roll out in a timeframe that makes sense for your users
Experience the strongest authentication on the planet for yourself.
"Beyond Identity has exceeded my expectations. Our deployment time frame was aggressive, but we had great support from the engineering and product teams from Beyond Identity who made it happen. It’s also seamless for my customers, and we are getting all positive feedback.”

Frequently Asked Questions
MDMs, which are often used BYOD security solutions, can often infringe on privacy of employees. Contractors and extended workforce often refuse to install MDMs because of these privacy concerns.
With MDMs, organizations have control of the device with and can entirely wipe the device remotely. While companies are supposed to only wipe the business portion of these devices, it hasn’t always worked that way. Beyond Identity doesn't infringe on user privacy while providing organizations with strong security.
Controlling internal machines is hard enough for administrators, but securing personal devices is a different and more difficult challenge. Not only must administrators ensure that devices are secure, but they must also differentiate between devices that should be legitimately authorized on the network versus personal devices that could contain rootkits, ransomware, keyloggers, and any other malicious applications.
It's a balancing act for organizations wanting to allow for maximum productivity with flexibility to work on different devices, but also making sure their networks remain secure and free of bad actors.

- Implementing phishing-resistant MFA
- Continuously verify the user's identity and their authorization to access sensitive resources
- Verify the identity and device attempting to authenticate by cryptographically binding the identity to a device
- Use a robust policy engine to ensure that everyone accessing resources meets the security requirements set by the organization
