This on-demand learning describes how risk-based analysis and authentication are handled by RSA SecurID Access



This on-demand learning describes policy and authentication configurations related to user risk factors and confidence in a user’s identity. This training describes the function of the RSA risk engine to gather static and behavioral facts and determine when additional authentication is required according to configured policies.

Demonstrations of the key configurations are provided to augment the descriptions and to show the specific steps involved.



RSA SecurID Access customers interested in understanding more about how identity confidence is used in evaluating authentication and access policies.
