Accelerate Your Zero Trust Strategy
Reduce the attack surface and delight your users with the industry’s only Zero Trust Authentication solution
The issues with traditional authentication
Organizations are moving to a minimal trust model and need to verify everyone and everything accessing their resources
Lack of visibility into device security settings during authentication exposes a gap and increases the attack surface
Authentication decisions lack input from risk signals from key security controls
Current MFA solutions are attacked at an increasing rate, due to a reliance on phishable factors.
Beyond Identity supports all major SSOs and open standards including OIDC, OAuth 2.0, SAML, and SCIM. We also have critical integrations with CrowdStrike and Zscaler to enable zero trust.
Why Beyond Identity is the only choice for Zero Trust Authentication
Assess device risk on a continuous basis
Organizations can make intelligent authentication decisions based on multiple risk signals from the device requesting access to the network. With Beyond Identity, organizations don't need to just trust the device is up to the security standards that are set. Endpoint devices are validated to make sure the necessary security requirements are being met before allowing it to access resources.
Users and devices are continuously authenticated when trying to access more sensitive resources during their sessions. This allows organizations to adhere to the zero trust motto "never trust, alway verify."
Sets the foundation for zero trust
With Zero Trust Authentication, you can approach identity and authentication from a security perspective. Simple authentication solutions automatically trust that the user identity or their device is enough without consideration of behavior and risk profile.
Zero Trust Authentication provides the strongest security for a zero trust architecture by requiring these seven tenets:
- Passwordless: No use passwords or other shared secrets
- Phishing resistant: No opportunity to obtain codes magic links, or other factors through phishing
- Capable of validating user devices: Able to ensure that requesting devices are bound to a user and authorized to access information assets and applications
- Capable of assessing device security posture: Able to determine whether devices comply with security policies
- Capable of analyzing many types of risk signals: Able to ingest and analyze data from endpoints and security and IT management tools
- Continuous risk assessment: able to evaluate risk throughout out a session, rather than relying on one-time authentication
- Integrated with the security infrastructure: Integrating with a variety of tools in the security infrastructure to improve risk detection, accelerate responses to suspicious behaviors, and to improve audit and compliance reporting
Lay a strong foundation for Zero Trust Authentication by positively authenticating the user and the device with Beyond Identity.
Integrates with your security ecosystem
By tying together leaders in security tools and solutions, Beyond Identity enables enterprises to deliver the highest level of secure authentication for their extended workforce, customers, and developers and advance the move to zero trust security.
Beyond Identity's Zero Trust Authentication shares data with other tools in the security ecosystem to improve risk detection so that it can continuously detect abnormal behavior and verify the device regularly. Traditional authentication solutions rely on one-time authentication and trusts that nothing malicious will happen during the user session.
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.”

Learn more about zero trust
NIST sees zero trust as a set of seven tenets, all working together to secure company resources continuously:
- All data sources and computing services are considered resources.
- All communication is secured regardless of network location.
- Access to individual enterprise resources is granted on a per-session basis.
- Access to resources is determined by dynamic policy—including the observable state of client identity, application/service, and the requesting asset—and may include other behavioral and environmental attributes.
- The enterprise monitors and measures the integrity and security posture of all owned and associated assets.
- All resource authentication and authorization are dynamic and strictly enforced before access is allowed.
- The enterprise collects as much information as possible about the current state of assets, network infrastructure and communications and uses it to improve its security posture.
John Kindervag, a former Forrester analyst, is credited with coining the term “zero trust” in 2009. The security term got a boost in popularity when Google announced in 2014 that they were moving to a zero trust security model.
Short answer: yes. It is currently considered best practice by many security professionals. The US government issued a memo on January 26, 2022, with the subject line reading “Moving the U.S. Government Towards Zero Trust Cybersecurity Principles.” This memo sets the groundwork for creating a zero trust architecture for federal agencies. It also set the ambitious goal of meeting this objective by the end of 2024. This move by the US federal government highlights the growing popularity of zero trust because of the strong security it provides.
