The Argument for a Better Authenticator

Cybersecurity has become front of mind for every company and every consumer. Securing online assets, protecting privacy and securing identity are paramount in order to build a sustainable future.

While passwords have traditionally provided the gateway to the web, they now provide open access to hackers and breachers, enabling them to wreak havoc on IT departments and security infrastructures.

Cards, PINs, Tokens and Challenge Response Questions were introduced to add an additional layer of security, but even these time-tested solutions have shown their inherent vulnerabilities.

The objective of this white paper is to provide a deep dive look at different methods of authentication, including to highlight biometrics as a technology that has been around for decades yet is emerging as the most secure and convenient way to address today’s cybersecurity challenges.
