The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) has announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with the FIDO (Fast Identity Online) Alliance to promote the need for a standards approach to authentication when tackling the needs of large-scale cloud services.

“The last 12 months has seen a shift in the cloud authentication landscape as more and more providers are looking to add additional layers of protection,” said Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance, “The security and usability challenges this creates means that a standards-based approach is the only practical direction. We are pleased to work together with the FIDO Alliance to encourage greater understanding of the requirements of modern authentication systems and to help our respective members to reduce the burden on their customers.”

“FIDO shares many of the same aims as the Cloud Security Alliance,” said Michael Barrett, president of the FIDO Alliance. “As we have been working on a common, industry standard for strong authentication, we have found ourselves engaged with cloud service providers who have clear requirements to deliver simple, strong authentication to meet their customers’ needs. By working together, the CSA and the FIDO Alliance will be able to ensure that these emerging standards meet these needs.”
