The authentication challenge
Breaches, phishing & billions of stolen
The internet was designed for sharing information, not security. As it has advanced and scaled to be a critical part of our everyday lives—so have the fraudsters. Today, 18 million login credentials are being compromised every day.
Passwords are growing in number and complexity
When we are forced to remember multiple, complex passwords, we inevitably forget them. Or we cut corners on security by simplifying them or using them over and over again.
Mobile authenticators do not stop phishing
To step up security we have been told to use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) such as mobile authenticators and text message (SMS). Only to find out that they are slow and do not prevent modern phishing attacks hijacking your logins.
