The Problem With Passwords
Passwords are the keys to unlock your online profiles and applications you use on a daily basis and, innately, a weak form of user authentication. Stolen, lost or forgotten passwords represent a huge security risk and a substantial productivity drain to organizations.
High Maintenance Costs
- 67% of IT help desk calls/tickets are related to password resets.
- U.S.-based organizations allocate over $1 million to password-related support costs.
Downgrade User Experiences
- The average business user needs to remember as many as 190 passwords.
- Users find it hard to remember multiple passwords for different applications they use at work and/or home.
Get Compromised Easily
- 81% of breaches involve stolen or weak credentials.
- 29% of all breaches involve use of stolen credentials.
Why Authentication without Passwords?
Passwords are becoming an artifact of the past. Passwords can be hacked and 81% of hacking-related breaches happen due to lost or stolen passwords. Passwords are predictable and are not enough to keep up with current cybersecurity threats.
The modern-day Passwordless Authentication combats account takeover attacks, brute force attacks, phishing attacks and other cyberthreats. Passwordless is the future ecosystem of authentication that meets the enterprise needs of high security, privacy and interoperability among various authentication devices.
Passwords are hacked the most with 81% success of breaches, leading to account takeover attacks, brute force attacks, credential stuffing and password spraying. Passwordless Authentication protects users from such attacks.
Major Savings on Help Desk Costs
On average, an IT help desk receives 67% of calls related to password resets monthly. This drains productivity and increases password reset costs for an organization. Eliminating passwords will allow users to recover their own accounts using factors they have enrolled in.
More IT Control and Visibility
Going passwordless lets IT reclaim its purpose of having complete visibility over identity and access management. IT can control the security of their organization and gain a better visibility into specific factors used by users.
Enhanced User Experience
Authenticating users through factors that they already possess, such as their mobile device (mobile authenticator apps, biometrics, SMS OTP) or laptop (Email OTP, Fingerprint, Face Recognition) enhance end user experiences with no lengthy passwords to remember.
Passwordless Authentication Factors
Replace static passwords, reduce risk and secure organizational assets with biometric authentication factors such as FaceID or TouchID.
Authenticate users with a mobile device. Get a push notification on QuickLaunch Authenticator app or Google Authenticator app and verify identity with a PIN or biometric.
Send time-based one-time tokens (passwords) through SMS or email, enabling users to verify their identity using soft tokens that expire in a few minutes.
Hard Token Authentication
Protect your digital world and stop account takeover attacks by authenticating end users using a physical device such as YubiKey by Yubico.
