Authentication is a foundational element of every cybersecurity program. For a long time, threat actors have been maturing and becoming more sophisticated. The response to that has to be a principled cybersecurity response framework. The problem is that most organizations focus on responding to threats by putting up reactive barriers such as VPN or unwieldy, legacy MFA – even while ignoring the most significant security vulnerability: the password. Authentication is a proactive model – if we can centralize most of our security insights at the auth event and make trust transactional, then protection, detection, and response become simplified. Join cybersecurity experts from the Beyond Identity team and Cybersecurity Insiders as they discuss why passwordless authentication should be a foundational element of your IAM and security portfolio.
