Advances in biometrics and possession factors reduce end-user friction when granted access to information and devices
Passwords are the most dangerous contributing factor in cyberattacks: the ability to misuse passwords have been the center of many egregious security compromises and data breaches. They are also expensive, burdening IT help desks and, once compromised, unlocking doors for attackers to infiltrate systems. In a new Impact Report, Passwordless Authentication: Shush, Don’t Tell, research and advisory firm Aite-Novarica Group explores the key trends within the passwordless authentication market and introduces organizations to vendors of passwordless authentication solutions.
“The passwordless authentication market is rapidly growing,” said Tari Schreider, Strategic Advisor at Aite-Novarica Group. “The move toward remote work has strained current password management and older tech two-factor solutions for the workforce. Attempts to cobble together multi-step authentication methods have created poor user experiences for customers and employees.”
