Trusona has provided on update on the deployment of its passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution for Windows 10, which will enable enterprises to provide enhanced security and usability to their customers while eliminating the need for passwords from the sign-in process.
Due to the ongoing challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and the various restrictions put in place that have forced a growing number of people to work remotely, enterprises all over the world have had to adapt to a changing security and authentication landscape. Experts have pointed to outmoded authentication methods like PIN/password as a target point for hackers, while MFA has emerged as a popular alternative as passwordless solutions gain popularity.
It’s no wonder, then, that Trusona is now collecting some very positive feedback from some of the first of its customers to take advantage of its updated platform.
“As passwords are consistently identified as the biggest risk to enterprise security, we knew it was important to remove this threat vector from our desktop login process,” said Steve Harrison, Managing Partner at Exeter Financial, a wealth management firm specializing in the areas of investing, estate and tax planning. “Trusona helps us protect our sensitive financial assets and provides us with the confidence to do our work securely and from any location.”
Aside from being a weak point that can be exploited by hackers, as more and more of our lives are lived online, passwords are also increasingly seen as a nuisance, and avoiding having to remember them has been another reason for the rise in passwordless options like biometrics and MFA.
“To us, removing passwords from the Windows login process just made sense and we love being able to sign in to our computers and devices without the unnecessary friction of typing in static credentials,” said Alexei Toropov, CTO at ZynRg, a provider of cost-effective, customer-centric CRM solutions. “By doing so, productivity has increased and frustration reduced as our employees can no longer lock themselves out due to forgotten passwords. The perpetual maintenance of a strict password policy can now be consigned to history.”
