We Need to Talk About Passwords – Urgently!

Presented by

Paul Fisher and Wolfgang Goerlich

About this talk

Passwords have been used for authentication for decades and continue to proliferate. Yet we know they create friction for users, slow down business productivity, and are a weak form of user authentication. Users are always forgetting them or use weak passwords that are easily cracked by hackers. Many organizations would love to lessen reliance on passwords but many passwordless solutions only provide a partial solution and do not solve the inherent weakness of passwords. Modern enterprises cannot cover the myriad of access use cases today with a passwordless solution alone. Pairing passwordless technology with strong Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a practical way to provide the broadest security coverage today. With MFA in place, you can reduce your reliance on passwords and modify password policies to require less frequent resets, alleviating help desk burden and reducing user frustration. Join this webinar to see how your passwordless strategy needs to be carefully considered and integrated into existing architecture. You will learn: The additional business challenges to consider such as digital, cloud and Hybrid IT environments The need to support both legacy and cloud apps with a consistent, simplified user experience Administrative and management costs: passwordless tech may require costly security hardware and device management Companies should not tie their policies to passwords to meet compliance
