What Does the Future Hold for Passwordless Authentication and Zero Trust?
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, March 05, 2020 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
Enterprises of all types face a growing number of cyber threats today. Studies show that most data breaches begin with compromised passwords. Moreover, password management is expensive and not user-friendly. Enterprise workforce users are driving the consumerization of IT. They want the same kind of flexibility and ease-of-use from the authentication systems at work that they use at home; often, this means using mobile devices.
Organizations also must operate in environments where regulatory complexity is increasing globally. Regulations and directives such as GDPR, PSD2, and CCPA are mandating stronger IT security controls, particularly for user authentication. Where does "Zero Trust" fit into this picture?
Join this webinar and learn about:
- The background factors in more detail and consider the path forward
- The need for increased security and regulatory compliance
- Evaluating authentication solutions to see if they meet the challenges of today
- Considering the role of multi-factor authentication as an integral component of Zero Trust architecture.
KuppingerCole Lead Analyst John Tolbert will elaborate on the consumerization of IT and how it creates new flexibility requirements for authentication.
John MacInnis, Vertical Market Director Enterprise at HID Global, will show how the principle of Zero Trust can be used to increase convenience and security alike.

As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
