Authentication is the beating heart of security. The most fundamental action in all of IT is to identify who you areand authentication is the building block that answers that question. Now more than ever, IT teams must do everything they can to ensure that users are who they say they are, and that their credentials have not been stolen. IT is in state of crisis, with hundreds of millions of identities stolen annually. For system administrators, its crucial to know which users have the right to access a given resource, and whether unauthorized users have tried to get in.
As we continue to move forward into an age of big data, optimization, and shared information through the capabilities of better networking technologies, opportunities have never been greater for using technology to improve the way the government interacts with constituents.

Recent events have shown us that now more than ever, government servers are getting victimized by well-funded teams of foreign hackers, possibly funded by their government.
