Passwords are the #1 security threat to enterprises today and are prime targets in cyberattacks. Passwords are also a source of friction for both your employees and customers. Passwordless is the way to reduce your security risk and increase user engagement and productivity.
Passwordless authentication protects the main target of hackers—your users—by providing quicker and easier ways to login and gain access.
Why Passwordless is Important Today
In our digital world, your customers' primary interaction with your brand is through your website or app. With more digital interactions than ever before, you need to make gaining access as seamless and secure as possible.

Stronger password policies and password managers are only band-aid solutions. Passwordless is the ultimate goal if you want to deliver frictionless and secure experiences.
