Leading Multi-factor Authentication And Single Sign-on Provider
Cipherise eradicates the most significant business security risk for the executive. Reputational damage through account compromise.
Cipherise eliminates usernames and passwords for your staff, clients, customers, and partners, increasing productivity and security.
What is Passwordless Authentication?
As the name suggests, passwordless authentication allows users to log into their digital accounts without inputting their passwords.
Instead of traditional passwords, this type of authentication relies on the use of biometric data and hardware tokens to verify user identity. Some examples of passwordless authentication include:
- Facial recognition
- Fingerprint scanning
- Smart cards
- USB keys
- One-time generated codes
These verification methods are more secure than traditional passwords, which are prone to hacking and phishing attempts.
On the user’s end, passwordless authentication is extremely convenient — passwords can be notoriously difficult to remember. Furthermore, using different passwords across multiple sites can lead users to create weak passwords that can easily be guessed.
Many users rely on the same (or similar) passwords for their accounts, making passwords one of the weakest links in a company’s security system.
Passwordless authentication minimises the possibility of human error. Instead of writing down passwords in order to remember them all, users can simply rely on their biometric data or hardware tokens to log into their accounts.
Businesses looking to improve operational security and efficiency must invest in passwordless authentication solutions. With many businesses looking to move operations into digital spaces, it is likely that passwordless authentication will soon become the norm.
For those that manage security, there is no storage of credentials for an attacker to steal or use. The attack is limited to one user on one system, not the entire organisation.  20,000 enterprise users and counting.
No log in
Cipherise removes usernames and passwords and replaces the traditional log in with a secure QR code.
By eradicating the password from the process, productivity lapses are no longer caused by forgotten passwords and insecure password reset processes.
For example, if you needed to access Office 365? Scan, approve, and you are in within seconds. Nothing to remember.
This typical attack used to steal credentials is now a thing of the past as you no longer hand credentials out. Cipherise replaces the public use of credentials with secure cryptography.
This large risk item is where someone uses a valid credential to access every system. Cipherise works on a zero-trust model where every individual system account is uniquely secured. If one user experiences a breach, it is limited to only that one user on that system.
Brute Force Attacks
Traditional tools fail this type of attack because there is no login process.
Implementing Passwordless Authentication
While passwordless authentication can make businesses more secure in the long run, it is still important to carefully consider the implementation process to ensure that the transition to passwordless authentication is as smooth as possible.
As a multi-factor authentication and single sign-on provider, we work closely with internal IT teams to ensure passwordless authentication is integrated seamlessly into the existing login processes.
After the initial setup, passwordless authentication solutions are then tested for any remaining vulnerabilities. User acceptance testing is also conducted to ensure the authentication methods still provide a user-friendly experience.
Training sessions are a critical component for shifting to passwordless authentication. Whether through training sessions or hands-on demonstrations, users need to understand how each new authentication method works.
Finally, passwordless authentication solutions need to be continuously monitored and evaluated to keep security breaches at bay. Opting to work with a multi-factor authentication provider means that you won’t have to worry about conducting these updates on your own.
