LexisNexis® Achieves Oracle Validated Integration with Oracle Identity Management
December 4, 2012 — The integration of LexisNexis Instant Authenticate with Oracle Adaptive Access Manager offers customers another way to prevent fraud and misuse of identities
LexisNexis Risk Solutions, a Gold level member of Oracle® PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of its Instant Authenticate product with Oracle Identity Management. The integration with Oracle Identity Management augments Oracle Adaptive Access Manager and enables customers to improve their overall risk management and identity management protection while lowering their overall operations costs.
To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of customers. This integration augments existing knowledge-based authentication (KBA) functionality of Oracle Adaptive Access Manager with LexisNexis’ offering of dynamic KBA out-of-wallet questions. The goal of this integration is to help strengthen the authentication process to prevent the potential fraud and misuse of an identity requesting access.
“When exposing sensitive applications or services such as self service password management on the Internet, our customers require adaptive access management mechanisms to effectively defend against the modern threats they face,” said Marc Boroditsky, vice president of product management, Oracle Identity Management. “The ability to incorporate the dynamic authentication provided by LexisNexis Instant Authenticate into the layered security flows will help Oracle Adaptive Access Manager customers better secure these extranet and internet resources. This Oracle Validated Integration provides a highly-usable and cost-effective solution to proactively combat online fraud and misuse.”
“Working with Oracle provides an additional means for customers to take advantage of LexisNexis’ identity management capabilities, resulting in increased protection from identity fraud and improved operational costs,” said Dennis Becker, vice president, marketing planning, Identity Management, LexisNexis.
LexisNexis Risk Solutions’ Instant Authenticate is a dynamic knowledge-based authentication solution for commercial and government customers, ranging from e-commerce and retailers to healthcare and telecommunications providers. In addition, it is used to help proof the identity of a new user or authenticate access for password resets and lockouts.
