What is Passwordless Authentication?

Cybersecurity threats are constantly evolving and increasing in complexity, making it challenging for organisations to keep their systems secure. Traditional password-based authentication methods are no longer enough to protect against the most common cyber attacks, such as phishing, account takeover, and brute-forcing. This is where Cipherise comes in as a new way to tackle age-old authentication problems.

Cipherise is a security product that provides both passwordless authentication and mutual authentication on a per-session basis. It eliminates the need for passwords, which are often the weakest link in security systems, by enabling secure, encrypted communication between users and their service providers.

Implementing Cipherise is the quickest and easiest way for companies to bolster their security posture and mitigate many of the common threats facing most organisations. With passwordless authentication, phishing threats, account takeover, and brute-forcing attacks become things of the past. By eliminating passwords, hackers have nothing to steal or phish, and the risk of password reuse and weak passwords is eliminated.

Moreover, Cipherise’s mutual authentication provides an additional layer of security, ensuring that both parties must authenticate each other before access is granted. This helps prevent attackers from impersonating users, gaining access to sensitive data, or performing malicious actions within a system.

Implementing Cipherise is quick and painless, making it an ideal solution for companies that want to improve their security posture quickly. The process involves integrating Cipherise’s libraries into an organisation’s application, which takes minimal time and effort. Cipherise uses your existing identity store and security profiles, and accepts all SAML apps and radius servers, including PAM modules for Unix.

By going passwordless with Cipherise, CISOs can become the day’s heroes. They can deliver a solution that increases security and helps to protect against a wide range of cyber threats. This protects the company and its data and enhances the user experience by streamlining the login process and reducing the need for memorising passwords.

Cipherise is a powerful authentication solution that all companies should embrace, as a component of their cybersecurity strategy. Passwordless eliminates many common cybersecurity threats, such as phishing and account takeover, and importantly, limits compromise to one user, one system, even if the attacker somehow gets in. Companies ensure both parties are verified using mutual authentication, providing an extra layer of protection. Embrace this new authentication and identity management paradigm, and go passwordless today.
