Password paradox

Passwords are the most common form of user authentication, and yet they should be taken with a grain of salt because, while easy to create, they offer weak security, and a poor user experience. By definition, a password is a shared secret. The secret is known by the user and the service, is often stored across various computing devices, and may even be shared in messages or on a sticky note. Each service, device, or user with knowledge of that secret can be the target of a cyber attack. And with over 80% of hacking-related breaches using stolen credentials, passwords can prove costly to the organization in reputational and financial losses.

Modern MFA and secure passwordless

With modern multi-factor authentication, and a move to secure passwordless login with strong phishing defense, organizations and their users can greatly enhance security while ensuring high productivity, all with fewer costly calls to the helpdesk. Passwordless is a journey, not an overnight transition. Learn about best practices that offer the bridge to passwordless, so that you can start on the journey, no matter where you are.
