The idea of removing passwords as the primary form of authentication has been around for several years. Often, it is talked about as a “future” consideration that organizations should begin planning for. However, should you be thinking of passwordless authentication as a future consideration or something you can begin doing today?
Passwords as a primary authentication factor continue to be the number one cause of data breaches in enterprise environments. According to the annual Verizon Data Breach Investigations report, 37% of data breaches in 2020 were due to stolen credentials, i.e., passwords. And despite years of following password guidance around complexity, length, and rotation, breaches continue to occur.
This evidence shows that it is time to eliminate passwords. Existing technologies and recently emerging and maturing standards such as FIDO2 and WebAuthn have made it possible to adopt a password-less strategy.
In this webinar recording, learn how you can begin taking practical steps using technology already deployed or available for deployment in your environment to begin your path to a passwordless state. Principal Architect Frank Urena discusses:
- Strategies for reducing dependence on passwords
- Managing service accounts in Windows environments
- How FIDO2 fits into your passwordless ecosystem
- Enabling Windows Hello for Business for cloud native and hybrid environments
