CIO Applications had the opportunity to sit down with Yves Audebert, Chairman, President, Co-CEO and Co-founder, Axiad IDS to discuss how Axiad IDS is helping organizations across industries quickly, simply, and affordably address mandates to protect against Cybersecurity threats. Following is an excerpt from the conversation.
"Cybersecurity is a critical part of digital business with its broader external ecosystem and new challenges in an open digital world,” rightly said Paul Proctor, Vice President and distinguished analyst at Gartner.
Can you give us an insight into the solutions deployed by Axiad IDS in the Cybersecurity space?
The dramatic increase in Cybersecurity threats has made this clear: Organizations require strong identities they can trust to conduct business, while customers, employees, and citizens need a less frustrating method to authenticate their identity. No matter the industry or market, Axiad IDS’ solutions are designed to help organizations implement security mandates and meet compliance requirements to prevent Cybersecurity threats.
Deploying and operating a cohesive and integrated secure identities solution is complex. Even with the most advanced technologies, a piecemeal approach may leave an organization vulnerable. As the risks grow and compliance requirements get more rigorous, deploying a seamless and secure solution becomes increasingly costly, while user experience suffers.
Axiad ID Cloud allows organizations to simply and cost-effectively address potential breaches head-on before they happen. Beyond designing, implementing, and managing the solution, Axiad ID Cloud also handles all of the reporting necessary for an organization to show proof of compliance with security mandates and policies.

Can you tell us more about your Axiad ID Cloud, and why it is deployed in a Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)? Also, help us to understand the relevancy of Axiad ID Cloud in addressing the specific and varied identity assurance needs of each organization’s user population.
The Axiad ID Cloud is a secure extension of an organization’s corporate network. A Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is dedicated to each organization’s data. There is no co-mingling of data, which provides extra layers of security protection. This is of great value to our customers and a big differentiator for Axiad IDS in the industry.
We are constantly making investments in Axiad ID Cloud as well as its innovative high assurance and high security solutions to ensure it has the flexibility required to meet the needs of a range of users.
Our modular identity solution platform, Axiad ID Cloud, helps organizations cost-effectively implement and manage a mix of user credentials with a range of assurance and authentication levels to meet unique needs and provide trusted identities. Think of Axiad ID Cloud as being at the intersection of an organization’s user experience and risk/threat profile.
Tell us about the advantage and uniqueness that Axiad IDS brings in to the Cybersecurity space along with your offerings.
Deployment of a typical security solution requires manual set-up and processes which are prone to human error. Axiad IDS’ automated cloud reduces this error and increases flexibility and overall efficiency by eliminating the manual set-up.
By removing the need to be IT security experts, organizations are freed to focus on their core business. This also mitigates hiring and staffing costs for complex on-premise systems which ultimately lowers risk and reduces investment costs. And because Axiad IDS’ experts are managing the set-up and life-cycle management, a system can be operational in just a few days—versus weeks or months.
