Passwordless login capabilities provide a secure and convenient way for companies to authenticate users and can play an important role in your security stack by minimizing the human risk-factor.

One of the main benefits of passwordless authentication is that it eliminates the need for users to remember and manage multiple passwords.  With users no longer needing to recall their passwords—and also then unable to share their passwords—the risk of password-related security breaches, such as phishing and brute force attacks, plus password reuse is significantly reduced.

Another key benefit of passwordless login is that it provides a more seamless and user-friendly experience.  With passwordless login, users can authenticate themselves with a variety of methods such as biometric authentication, one-time passcodes sent via SMS, or a security key.  This facilitates user adoption and reduces the risk of users circumventing security measures.

Passwordless login also provides a way to secure remote transactions, as users can authenticate themselves without the need to be physically present at a location.  This is particularly useful in today’s digital world where remote work and online transactions are becoming more and more prevalent.

Moreover, passwordless login capabilities can also be integrated with multi-factor authentication (MFA) to provide an additional layer of security.  MFA can help to protect against identity theft and other cyber threats by requiring users to provide multiple forms of authentication—critically important for companies that handle sensitive data or operate in regulated industries.

By incorporating passwordless login capabilities into your security stack, you can improve your security posture and reduce costs.  Passwordless authentication:

  • Eliminates the need for users to remember and manage multiple passwords,
  • Provides a more seamless and user-friendly experience,
  • Secures remote transactions, and
  • Can be integrated with multi-factor authentication.

Organizations that adopt passwordless login capabilities better secure your digital assets, improve user adoption, and reduce the risk of security breaches.
