BlockID Workforce is a next-generation identity solution designed to greatly improve the security of your corporate network and enterprise applications by eliminating usernames and passwords and the need for separate multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions — and all the risks, costs and hassles that go with them.
The 1Kosmos BlockID cloud-first architecture allows for deployment within an organization in 30 minutes. Our entire platform has been built utilizing the latest in container technology, allowing it to run in any customer cloud or even on-prem. A hybrid model allows for interaction with on-prem resources without any unencrypted PII or other user data being stored in the cloud.
Dramatically improve security and lower costs by replacing vulnerable usernames and passwords and outdated MFA systems with a more secure and easier-to-use solution.
Improve employee satisfaction by speeding logins and eliminating the need to remember multiple complex passwords or deal with cumbersome MFA fobs or dongles, annoying CAPTCHAs and more.
Because it's a cloud-based solution that's customizable, fully integrated with leading access management and SSO solutions and supports a whole host of essential standards, your IT team will love it, too.
With BlockID Workforce, you provision users as you would normally, but instead of a username and password, your employees, contractors, vendors and other business partners use the BlockID mobile app and their biometrics — their face, voice or fingerprint — to log into your corporate network, VPN, single-sign-on (SSO) solution, enterprise applications or other secure online resources.
BlockID Workforce replaces costly and cumbersome multi-factor authentication (MFA) systems, too, with a more secure, less costly and easier-to-use solution, and extends the same high-level of security to all your users instead of just privileged accounts.
Because BlockID Workforce replaces usernames and passwords and outdated MFA solutions, you can dramatically improve security by completely eliminating vulnerabilities such as password reuse, keyloggers, SIM swapping and phishing attacks, and eliminate costs related to password resets or data breaches caused by stolen credentials.
Your users will love it, too. There are no complex passwords for them to remember or update, no MFA fobs or dongles to carry, no codes or pins to enter, no annoying Captcha puzzles to solve. It couldn’t be easier.
BlockID Workforce is a cloud-based solution that's fully integrated with leading access management and SSO solutions, including Active Directory, so it's fast and easy to deploy. Its easy-to-use API provides support for open standards such as SAML, FIDO2 and OAuth that make it fast and easy to integrate custom applications or authorization systems, too. If you prefer, you can host it in your own data center.
The BlockID mobile app is provided as a white label SDK-based solution, so you can customize it with your organization's own name and branding or integrate its features into your own mobile apps.
1Kosmos leverages a Distributed Ledger to securely store employees’ identity information, with access controlled by the employee (GDPR compliant) as well as a layer of privacy built around Ethereum to execute smart contracts. This is the BlockID Blockchain ecosystem.
Each employee’s information is encrypted using their own unique cryptographic key pairs, with their private key stored securely on their own mobile devices. That means there are literally thousands of separate and unique encryption keys and mobile devices protecting the identity data, which makes it impervious to hacking (W3C compliant).
BlockID solutions automatically and seamlessly handle all interactions with the Blockchain — no Blockchain knowledge or expertise is required by anyone on your team to enjoy all of its benefits. It couldn’t be any easier.
