Passwordless authentication has gained interest due to its benefits in simplifying the login experience for users
Thales launches its first Fast IDentity Online 2.0 (FIDO2) and Microsoft Azure AD tested authentication devices. FIDO 2 enables passwordless access to cloud apps, network domains along with all Azure AD-connected apps and services.
Due to the integration, organizations will be able to move to the cloud safely. Along with that, it will allow them to apply for secure access via an integrated access authentication offering.
The FIDO Alliance aimed to help reduce the world’s over-reliance on passwords. FIDO claims that other authentication methods that replace the password, increase the levels of assurance and convenience.
The data revealed that passwordless authorization surmounts the inherent vulnerabilities of text-based passwords, enabling a higher level of security.
Along with that, the technology is compatible with the existing PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) authentication practices, meaning that organizations can adopt it without replacing their existing infrastructure. It simplifies organizations’ transition to the cloud.
