Authentication technologies not only provide the best way for organizations to protect themselves from attacks, but also give the ability for organizations to seamlessly enable digital business. IT departments are now shifting their focus to mobile and cloud capabilities, and are expected to provide a secure and efficient ecosystem for partners, networks, and personnel to both rapidly and accurately authenticate the identities of users and their devices without sacrificing user experience. But using only a simple identifier such as a password is too vulnerable of an approach, and compromised credentials are one of the primary causes of serious and costly security breaches.
On the other end of complexity, traditional two-factor authentication (2FA) has a significant total cost of ownership (TCO) and is known to frustrate users. The myriad of applications, combined with remote and mobile workers who bring mobile devices (BYOD) is accelerating the authentication problem.
