PDS integrates aPersona’s Adaptive Security Manager for InfoSec Compliance & Credential Security

RALEIGH, NC., November 13, 2017 – PDS, a leading provider of recruiting, human resource, payroll, benefits and time and attendance software throughout the U.S. and Canada, has integrated aPersona’s Adaptive Security Manager (ASM) to provide invisible adaptive multi-factor authentication to Vista, their flagship Human Capital Management solution.


PDS has always held security as a top priority for their Human Capital Management solutions. Heightened risks from massive global credential breaches coupled with  increasing credential reuse has left nearly all on-line services openly exposed to  fraudulent logins. In light of this increased global threat, PDS wanted to effectively protect the valuable HR data managed by PDS Vista® from credential theft and at the same time provide valuable risk analytic data for audit and compliance requirements.


“We wanted a solution that was powerful, easy to setup, invisible to the end-user and rich in risk analytic reporting”, said Steve Fitzgerald, VP of Services at PDS. “Given the wide spread risks of credential fraud, we knew our customers would require additional layers of security. We spent a great deal of time vetting solutions and aPersona’s Adaptive Security Manager was exactly what we had been looking for with the perfect balance of flexibility and affordability for our customers. We are pleased to make aPersona a fully integrated security solution embedded into Vista. Our customers love it!”


“We have been working closely with PDS and their users to provide fully adaptive authentication into Vista that is instantly available with a simple click”, commented Kelly Sparks, CEO of aPersona. “PDS wanted industry-leading ‘financial services and banking’ intelligent security in Vista, and we are pleased to be partnering with them to deliver it with flexible and tunable multi-factor risk policies. We are pleased to offer and support PDS as a partner with aPersona. The integration of aPersona’s Adaptive Security ManagerTM with Vista lets PDS customers enable our invisible layer of login security for every Vista user with the click of a button. Our invisible registration, invisible monitoring, invisible learning and invisible risk evaluations of transactions are revolutionary to the Human Capital Management industry, and we highly value our partnership with PDS.”
