  • Risks Posed By Legacy Authentication Recorded: Jan 18 2017 47 mins
    Garrett Bekker of 451 Research & Martin Gontovnikas of Auth0
    Username and password are not enough. So why do most companies still use them?

    There’s a Technology Basics White Paper first published in 2002 entitled “Username and Password – A Dying Security Model.” This paper documents the HIGH risk level associated with legacy authentication (using username and password) and predicted that secure access methods using Biometrics, Single Sign On (SSO), One Time Password Tokens and Multi-Factor Authentication would quickly replace the use of traditional passwords. Fast forward to a decade and a half later and the majority of companies are still using username and password authentication. We all agree that legacy authentication is not good enough, so why do most companies still use them?

    For many, the path to modern authentication seems difficult and expensive, while others worry about the impact on user experience. Join us for a webinar where we will explore this paradox and discuss practices for making secure, modern authentication fast and easy for developers and simple and frictionless for users.
