Key Considerations for Passwordless Implementation
Password-based authentication is no longer fit for purpose. Passwords are costly and difficult to manage, they result in poor user experiences, and they are easily compromised. This has been widely recognized for some time, but going passwordless is also challenging and continues to be elusive for many organizations.
Join experts from KuppingerCole Analysts and Duo Security for a discussion about shifting to passwordless authentication, how it could be an enabler of digital transformation within your business, why it’s about more than just authentication methods, and how to address the challenges enterprises face in implementing a single passwordless solution to cover all access use cases in hybrid environments.
Paul Simmonds, Fellow Analyst at KuppingerCole, Global Identity Foundation CEO, and former CISO, will examine the benefits as well as the challenges of shifting to passwordless authentication. He will also explain what is achievable today, and outline a phased approach to enabling a fully passwordless future.
Josh Green, Duo Technical Marketing Engineer, will discuss what organizations need to think about when considering transitioning to passwordless access and share technical insights. He will also cover Duo’s recent passwordless research findings, how to evaluate passwordless authentication methods, and how to ensure that passwordless becomes a broader initiative to help enhance security.
