Video: DigitalPersona's Jim Fulton on Increasing Security, Managing Users & Reducing Compliance Headaches via Linked Logical/Physical User Identities


User management, from preventing the errant clicks that lead to downloading viruses to tracking user behavior that might be indicative of malicious intent, permeated many of the panels and presentations at the SecureWorld Expo-Dallas, held November 4-5, 2009. 

At least one way of potentially influencing user behavior as well as managing and monitoring it is by building one physical/logical identity per user, instead of the typical one or more credentials for physical access and then a dozen or more logical user ids. After his panel discussion on securing endpoints, Security Squared asked Jim Fulton, vice president, marketing, for digitalPersona, a biometrics firm, to talk in more detail about the practical business and security benefits of the converged identity.
