Beyond Identity partners with Ignition Technology

Passwordless authentication company Beyond Identity has formed a strategic partnership with Ignition Technology. 

Ignition Technology will now be able to distribute Beyond Identity’s solutions through its extensive network of IT resellers and MSSPs in the Nordics as well as in Benelux.

With the Beyond Identity Platform, organisations can eliminate passwords, positively verify user identities, confirm device trust, and enforce risk-based access controls, the company said. 

The solution eliminates passwords and cryptographically binds the user’s identity to their devices using asymmetric cryptography and extends the chain of trust established with TLS (modern-day SSL) to end-users devices. 

The setup of Beyond Identity’s solution is completed in a matter of a few hours, it says, and integrates with all leading single sign-on solutions.

Juha Hakava (pictured), regional director of Nordics for Beyond Identity, said the company is delighted to start working with Ignition Technology in the Nordics. “They were an obvious choice because of their proven ability to deliver cybersecurity, identity and access management solutions.

“Like us, they see a huge market opportunity and that the market for this type of solution can be expected to grow rapidly. Together we will work hard to make Beyond Identity a recognised leader in passwordless authentication in Northern Europe.”

Marko Lindstedt, sales director for Ignition Technologies NEUR, said: “Ignition Technology is a specialised security distributor for the Saas world and we are focusing on helping our great channel partners to gain advantages of the market with leading new technologies.

“We are very pleased to partner with Beyond Identity. Their world class advanced passwordless platform and solutions complement our market leading Identity offering successfully and we are looking forward to working with their talented and superior team in the Northern European market.”
