Deploying Passwordless Authentication for Employees at IBM
Digital transformation at large enterprises has resulted in the complete dissolution of the traditional corporate intranet and the cumbersome defense-in-depth safety measures that provided. Employees now routinely login to enterprise applications and systems via the open internet, meaning that the attack surfaces for corporate espionage are broad and always available. Identity has become the new perimeter, and authentication systems are the new firewall. Mitigating password-based attack vectors such as credential stuffing is mandatory, and bringing a better user-experience at the same time an added bonus. In this presentation learn how IBM has transformed authentication systems of engagement for employees, permitting fast, secure and ubiquitous login across a wide variety of enterprise systems utilising FIDO2 technology. By learning from our experience we hope you can fast-track your way to success in your own organization.
