Identity as a Service Consulting Services

What is FusionAuth?

FusionAuth is a custom built Multi Factor Identity Validation as a Service solution created by DBA Binary Fusion company that encompasses best industry security practices and frameworks for companies wishing to validate their devices, users or applications prior to getting authenticated and authorized onto the network. 

FusionAuth is basically a service that our company offers to customers who already may or may not have existing authentication and authorization solutions and looking for integration help.  Our FusionAuth service encompasses FusionCLM solution offering that we specifically developed for customers seeking to take control of their certificate lifecycle management and PKI needs as it pertains to renewing certificates and maintaining your PK.

FusionCLM is basically a subset of FusionAuth service offering. Our FusionAuth service goes beyond just CLM and PKI

Go Beyond Certificates, with multi level identity.

multi factor integration solutions

Our company works with different types of vendors, helping customers reinforce their security with multi-factor level of validation for all of customers’ devices.  Whether these devices are in cloud or on premise.  c

So how do we help customers validate if device that hops on the network is a company device?

The answer is through the use of Cisco Identity Service Engine to tackle your on premise connectivity needs, and through integration of Cisco Identity Service Engine with MDM or multiple MDMs such as JAMF and Microsoft Endpoint Manager In-Tunes, in order to allow devices that are either mobile communicating with your company’s applications across multi cellular/wireless networks or on premise be able to connect securely, regardless if they are BYOD types of devices, IoT devices or any other enterprise appliances attempting to connect to your network such as printers, video conferencing systems or servers.

Beyond Certificate LifeCycle Management

Our company can go beyond just the certificate lifecycle management.

  Relying on certificates to validate if the device is truly the company’s devices, is all great and good, however, it still does not protect from the security unfortunate situations where the certificate is copied from your company’s device to another on company’s device and such device end up hopping on your network causing all sorts of damage…

How do you combat that? 

This is where our multi-factor monitoring and integration services come into play.

Imagine having multi level of validation

  • Imagine having a way to rely not just on certificate lifecycle management, but on other methods of validation to fortify your security, where our company can help you integrate your network with Cisco Identity Services solution and MDM solution such as Azure Microsoft Endpoint MDM that can manage compliance access through In-Tunes or JAMF and provide solid intelligence to Cisco ISE in regards to devices’ compliance state.

Having a combination of both solutions side by side is like having brother and sister of network security and application security.

Our company can help customers with their network security fortification, where we can help your organization deploy Cisco ISE, roll out certificates across multiple devices, turn on 802.1x on wired and wireless devices, on the WLC controller level as well as Cisco Switches or any other 802.1x supported switches.  We can help with deploying across the entire distributed environment, regardless if your company is national or multi-national.   

  • Think of Cisco ISE as a knight and shining armor who does not allow devices to hop on the network prior to devices validating themselves with ISE and MDM as truly trusted, based on the certificates that they contain or other types of posturing characteristics.    
  • Our company can also help customers move away from the traditional complex identity system and can help with integrating of Cisco ISE with Azure or other types of mult-factor IDPs.  This way you can log in across your routers, switches, and firewalls with the very same AD username and password, attached to the Microsoft Authenticator application or any other type of application that will recognize the user as a legitimate user and prompt the user on their phone to accept authentication request any time someone logs into your network.
  • Leveraging Cisco ISE for validating if the device that hops onto the network happens to be company’s device, is dependent on not just certificates, but also on other characteristics such as if the devices have a CrowdStrike agent installed or if it has in-tunes installed, or if there is specific registry string that makes the device unique. 
  • Multiple levels of validation are often required to combat situations where a certificate is stolen and copied into another non-legitimate device. Our company has developed integration expertise specifically for different types of devices, where we leverage MDM solutions such as Azure Endpoint Manager In-Tunes to identify if the device that hops on the network doesn’t just have a certificate, but also happens to be compliant with in-tunes.  If it is then we allow devices on the network.  

What exactly does our company offer for Multi Factor Identity Integration & Validation Services?

We offer CLM and PKI unified portal for your environment based on your infrastructure.

In addition, our company offers extenuation of our original CLM and PKI product offering for companies who would like to manage their Certificates Lifecycle process in combination with the PKI infrastructure and be able to have a centralized portal that allows customers to renew certificates in a single place vs jumping across different types of tools generating certificates and forgetting about them 3 years later only to result in outage. 

Why validating what gets on your network matters.

Problem

Devices can get on company's network without any true form of validation:

The most typical solution to that problem is the deployment of certificates and managing these certificates throughout the entire certificate lifecycle management process.  That means renewing certificates on devices such as video conferencing systems, phones, printers, security appliances, IoT devices, you name it.

Yet the reality is, not that many vendors out there actually support certificates.  Many IoT devices simply have no way of inserting certificates or do not support EAP-TLS 802.1x authentication.  Yet the need for security and validation of the devices is still there.

For every device there is a different Validation solution.

Depending on what type of device is trying to authenticate with the network, the authentication capabilities may vary.  For example, some may support certificates, while others may support no such thing, but perhaps have some process or a service, or a registry key that is running in Windows OS for example.

IoT devices may have unique processes/services that can be tracked for validation.

Yet the problem is it’s hard to monitor devices that constantly come and go.

Imagine monitoring not just devices, but lambda functions and auto-scaling ec2 instances… that’s when the real fun begins.

Yet with every unique problem, there is a unique solution.

DBA Binary Fusion can help you tackle these Identity Validation problems with unique solutions.

 

 

Solution

So how do you validate different types of devices and applications if certificates can not exactly be deployed?

The answer is to use multiple layers of validation.

  • For example if your environment consists of laptops that have operating systems such as Windows and MAC OS, then there are multiple validation tools that exist out there that makes the concept of recognizing that the the laptop is company’s laptop and not just some rogue device. 
  • Yet the reality is that many of the tools on the market require sophisticated level of understanding about all the eccentric functionalities.
  • Many of the tools on the market makes concept of realizing what works or what doesn’t difficult to decipher.
  • Managed windows devices maybe easier to handle with Enterprise application tools such as Microsoft Endpoint Manager (formerly known as in-tune), while MAC devices are easier to handle with tools like JAMF and Apple Business Manager.
  • Yet what about other devices such as the ones that do not have certificate validation capabilities or enterprise MDM system to handle the requests, how can such types of devices be handled from validation standpoint?
