Comment from Jason Goode, managing director EMEA Ping Identity on why passwords are simply no longer fit for purpose and how authentication that centres on user identity, is the way forward.
Jason Goode, managing director EMEA, Ping Identity
Yet again, we are increasingly seeing how passwords are simply no longer fit for purpose in the age of the mass hack. The safest place to store a password is in our heads, but this simply isn’t practical when we have to juggle multiple passwords for multiple websites. It is no wonder that many suffer from password amnesia. The future for secure and seamless authentication must be multi-factored and tailored to the user. Two-factor authentication that centres on a user’s identity is the key to bolstering online security- the industry is already making strides in harnessing this technology, whether its logging onto your smart phone or tablet with fingerprints, heartbeat sensors- even emojis. The key is remembering that identity must be at the heart of the login process to ensure the safety and security of personal and indeed corporate data.
