So what does this mean for the future of enterprise networking?

Still Using Passwords? Forget That Sh*t

The constant barrage of breaches over the last decade has made it clear that usernames and passwords - invented back in 1964 - are simply no longer secure enough. According to the 2019 Verizon Breach Investigations Report, compromised credentials are responsible for over 80% of all breaches. 

Despite attempts to make static credentials more secure by adopting two-factor authentication utilizing SMS, OTPs or hardware tokens, these added layers still leave organizations vulnerable to phishing attacks, keylogging, malware and more. 

By removing the past reliance on usernames and passwords, you can enhance your organization's security by significantly reducing your overall attack surface and virtually eliminating the risk of compromised credentials. 

Takeaways: 

1. Learn how usernames and passwords are leaving your organization at risk. 

2. See how how passwordless authentication removes major threat vectors. 

3. Provide users a fast, simple and consistent authentication experience across any channel
