The modern solution to the modern threat
Digital identity is a question of who — who is logging in? So why, for so long, have we been focused on the question of what — what is being typed in?
Yes, passwords are a pain for everyone — for users that have to remember them, for IT Help Desks that have to reset them. Plus, they’re vulnerable. According to the 2019 Verizon Breach Investigations Report, compromised credentials are responsible for more than 80% of all breaches. Remove the password, problem solved, right? Well, no. Adding extra layers to traditional MFA is only making the whole login experience more cumbersome in our professional and our personal lives.
Trusona isn’t simply in the business of removing passwords from the authentication process. We created a new login experience, based on the way people work and live, that helps enterprises move beyond the vulnerabilities of the password and traditional MFA to deliver on the core promise of digital identity authentication: know who’s on the other end. Gartner used to call it “phone as a token”; now it’s “Mobile MFA”. Others in the industry hopped on the “passwordless” train. Trusona thinks about the problem a little differently. We call it Passwordless Identity Authentication.
Let's break this down
Easy to forget, easy to hack. It’s a wonder we still use a static-credential system to access our most sensitive environments. By removing passwords from users, Trusona takes the biggest vulnerability out of the hands of the most vulnerable users. This instantly mitigates eight of the most common attack vectors, like SIM swapping, keylogging, credential replay and credential stuffing, all of which are password dependent. You won’t miss the user ID and password. Say G00dby3! to the complex passwords your employees hate and your customers can’t remember. Still, want passwords for your backend systems? No problem. Keep 256 character, auto-rotated passwords for your cyber-savvy privileged users.
That’s ultimately what we’re trying to verify with passwords, right? The legacy login experience we use today is supposed to be built upon user trust, but it often falls short. That’s why Trusona designed an identity proofing solution that verifies a user’s identity based on the factors you trust. Trust your customers even before they’re your customers with identity proofing based on documents like government-issued identification, U.S. driver’s licenses and employer-issued IDs. Know your customers are who they say they are, and save customers the headaches of frustrating form fills and clunky account creation.
Is that you? Or is that your old college roommate logging into your Netflix account with the same old password you’ve been using for years. Don’t take your users’ words for your security, verify their identity with an authentication process so seamless you may not even notice it happened. We focus on who’s on the other end, not what’s being typed, so you can trust digital identity in authentication and identity proofing, whether for your employees, your customers, or any users across your value chain.
