About this talk

The ‘mobile first’ movement has resulted in most UX investments being focused on smartphones, tablets, smart home devices, etc. However, the faithful computer and laptop continues to be the workhorse of the masses and is where the most demanding and high-security tasks are performed. So why is it that there are no user-friendly and secure solutions for authenticating into computers and laptops? The insecurity of passwords is a UX problem, and shortcuts to make them easier lead to security risks, which lead to breaches. Most of the much-publicized mega-data breaches the past few years have been because of compromised or stolen passwords. According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Incident Report, faulty passwords were responsible for 63% of all confirmed data breaches between 2016 and 2017. Finally, the combination of sensor-rich smartphones and biometric authentication are making it possible to eliminate passwords entirely. Using Veridium’s solutions, the challenges of unlocking and logging into a workstation have been overcome. In this webinar, you will enter a world that has continuous seamless logins with little friction. That world is being made possible through Veridium’s disruptive approach to authentication. In this webinar you will learn how: - Enable secure passwordless logins online and offline - Advanced smartphone capabilities can be leveraged to improve access - To reduce the risk of large-scale data breaches by eliminating passwords
