The Future of Enterprise Security: Is it Time to Go Passwordless?

The explosion of cloud identities due to the Covid-19 pandemic has set IT decision-makers on a quest to reconcile the speed of cloud with the security, compliance and scalability needs of the enterprise. Balancing access for remote workers and security can be accomplished with cloud access management and zero-trust security solutions that address the multi-faceted challenges of the new identity perimeter.

Passwords have been constant throughout the internet era. Moving from desktops to smartphones, from on-premises infrastructure to cloud services, everyone has relied on passwords to access and safeguard data and resources across applications. In the digital age, where data breaches are rampant, passwords are no longer good enough. Not only are they insecure but expensive and a poor user experience.

  • Is it time to go passwordless? What are the benefits and drawbacks of this move?
  • What alternative methods of identification are currently available?
  • How can companies improve user experience and scalability without compromising their security?
