AccessMatrix™ Universal Authentication Server (UAS) is a versatile authentication server which enables organizations to unify their different authentication mechanisms and simplify integration complexities. UAS supports a wide range of authentication methods using a Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) approach and new ones can be easily added to cater for evolving authentication mechanisms.
Organizations can also use the authentication workflow to chain two or more authentication methods for strong authentication and authorization requirements. The out-of-the-box end-to-end token & biometrics life cycle management module greatly streamlines the administration and reduces time-to-market.
With our patented Segmented Hierarchy-Based Security Administration and Authorization Framework, UAS allows organizations to designate security administrators at different levels of the organization. The framework can be extended to allow external organizations to manage IDs and user rights by their own security administrators. This feature has been proven to be well suited to address administration requirements for Management Security Providers or SaaS Providers.
