Responsible for countless hours of lost productivity and some of the biggest security breaches on record, passwords have long been a headache for everyone. According to Okta’s Passwordless Future Report, when employees forget passwords, 37 percent cannot access critical information needed to perform their jobs. This type of poor password hygiene creates multiple issues for employees and businesses alike. Eliminating login friction and increasing user security remains an ongoing challenge for enterprises in a world of complex application, device, and operating system ecosystems. IT and security teams need intelligent access management solutions that offer standardization and ease of use.
“IT teams are tasked with operating vast technology ecosystems made up of a diverse set of applications, operating systems, and devices, all focused on providing choice and flexibility to their workforces,” said Diya Jolly, Chief Product Officer, Okta. “Going passwordless not only makes employees happy, but it can make them more secure by relying on stronger factors like biometrics. Okta FastPass eliminates the need for a password regardless of an employee’s device choice, and highlights how Okta’s independent identity platform can deliver a truly differentiated experience for our customers. This is made possible through a significant upgrade to the Okta Identity Cloud, marrying user identity to device identity for the first time, and opening the door for incredible usability and security possibilities.”
