It's no secret that passwords have historically been one of the largest causes of cyberattacks. Weak passwords are easily compromised through attacks like brute force, social engineering, password spray, and more. Strong passwords increase complexity by being long and random, which leads to them being forgotten and still leaving them susceptible to attacks such as phishing. On the other hand, passwordless user authentication not only eliminates passwords, it includes features like proximity detection, which eliminates threats like remote-based attacks while also improving the user experience.

Here's how it works

There are no servers to manage or software to deploy. You simply use our cloud-based service to establish your policies and monitor activity on your networks.

Step One

Install a smart credential on an employee’s mobile device to create a secure digital workforce identity.

Step Two

The worker unlocks the device with biometric authentication, such as fingerprint or facial recognition, to verify his or her identity.

Step Three

Once the worker is authenticated, Bluetooth® connectivity to his or her Mac or PC computer delivers passwordless single sign-on to all apps – cloud-based and on-premises – while in close proximity.

Step Four

When the worker walks away from their computer, he or she is logged out, or their workstation is locked, depending on the policy set by the worker’s organization.
