The demand for identification and authentication solutions is at an all-time high owing to rising cybercrimes, internal cybersecurity threats, and other nefarious activities. The traditional security measures for identity and access management are outdated and no longer effective in preventing data breaches. One of the significant reasons why cyber breaches continue to occur is because organizations today lack deep security expertise, a complete authentication, and straightforward process, and modern IAM tools. Besides, the wake of new and strengthened regulations has created new complexities, forcing organizations to redefine their security models. To overcome these challenges, organizations need a reliable partner who understands the nuances of the cybersecurity space and delivers seamless authentication solutions across multiple channels—enter SurePassID.
Having been in the security industry for over two decades, SurePassID has revolutionized the space through its groundbreaking authentication solutions for the cloud, on-premises systems, edge computing, and IoT devices. SurePassID offers a broad spectrum of multi-factor authentication solutions that seamlessly integrate with any network, service, or app to secure access to any application or device, by any authorized user, at any time. The company primarily caters its solutions to commercial and government agencies such as defense, healthcare, government, aerospace, and other sectors that have high-security requirements. “We bridge the gaps that enterprises and traditional security companies cannot fill, offering a wide variety of authentication use cases, ensuring the needs of businesses and identity security requirements are met,” SurePassID’s VP Business Development Kevin Raineri says.
The expertise of SurePassID lies in delivering affordable authentication solutions that adhere to open standards such as Open Authentication (OATH), Fast Identity Online (FIDO), OpenId Connect (OIDC), and SAML2 that facilitate inter-operability and a hassle-free customer and employee authentication experience. The company recently achieved FIDO Universal Server Certification that supports all FIDO standards from U2F (Universal Two-Factor) to FIDO2. “We also have a complete SDK and API library to enable our customers to integrate two-factor authentication into any app (mobile, web, desktop, IoT), including third-party software vendor companies that do not support MFA capability,” Raineri says.
One unique solution addresses the need where many people are in an environment with shared workstations such as a hospital or manufacturing shop floor. SurePassID’s TapID™ OneCard Converged Credential and Unified Authentication server enable customers to take advantage of the new FIDO standard to make authentication fast and convenient by simply tapping their multi-purpose OneCard with NFC FIDO built-in and entering a PIN code. Another great solution is their Virtual FIDO Mobile Authenticator app to eliminate passwords altogether. “This app takes the new FIDO security standard to the mobile world where it can be used as a stand-alone FIDO authenticator app, or be seamlessly integrated into your existing mobile apps to make authentication fast and convenient at a low cost,” points out Raineri.

For resellers, SurePassID is multi-tenant, fully internationalized and localized, and can be private labeled or incorporated into other service offerings. SurePassID also provides unmatched sales, marketing, and technical support for partners.
As enterprises embrace IoT solutions, SurePassID is providing a comprehensive and scalable IoT solution securing IoT devices, edge networks, and critical infrastructure in a way that is an extension to their existing enterprise authentication and authorization systems. SurePassID is blazing the path to a unified security solution to lock down everything in the enterprise within a compliance and audit framework that enterprises require. Users may carry a single authentication device or app securing access to every critical physical and logical asset in and outside of the data center that cannot be repudiated.
SurePassID is working closely with chip manufacturers, Cloud and IoT partners such as NXP, Azure IoT and AWS IoT, to quickly enable IoT product and software developers to embed strong authentication into the design phase of their IoT projects.
Many clients seek out SurePassID for its expertise in high-security environments and its ability to customize the solution to suit the specific security challenges. For instance, a prominent healthcare company with multiple business units around the world selected SurePassID as their authentication services provider. They needed a platform they could use as their global authentication engine to serve all of their business units worldwide, with high security, high performance, and resilience. SurePassID delivered a holistic cloud-based solution aptly aligned with the client’s needs. The company provided full branding for their customer’s mobile app, which supports OTP, push authentication, and even the ability to secure one-click over-the-air user provisioning.
SurePassID has created products and tools where users do not need a password to log in, and every login that takes place is done with the use of biometrics and integrated soft tokens. For the IoT space where over 70% of the connected products out there lack security, the company has developed an authentication server-on-a-chip to address this severe lack of built-in security for IoT devices, aimed at chip manufacturers and IoT product makers so that authentication can be designed into IoT products from the beginning. Raineri concludes, saying, “We offer the most powerful and proven suite of authentication tools for every business that needs fast and convenient authentication of its employees, customers, and now IoT devices, at the lowest total cost per user.”
