Passwordless

Forget passwords, go passwordless

Passwords are becoming a relic of the past. The use of passwords leaves us increasingly more vulnerable as we become more predictable in generating them. Trying to combat this with requirements for stronger complexity and frequent updates makes it harder to be productive, drives up already-high costs in password maintenance and support, and still isn’t enough to keep up with current cybersecurity threats. People want a highly secure, convenient alternative.

Passwordless authentication is a form of multi-factor authentication (MFA) that replaces passwords with two or more verification factors secured and encrypted on a user’s device, such as a fingerprint, facial recognition, a device pin, or a cryptographic key. The credentials never leave the device, eliminating the risk of phishing. These alternatives are based on new industry standards developed by members of the Fast ID Online (FIDO) Alliance.

Features like multifactor authentication can help secure your organization, but users often get frustrated with the additional security layer on top of having to remember their passwords. Passwordless authentication methods are more convenient because there’s no password to remember, and they’re compatible across most devices and systems. Plus, they’re virtually impervious to phishing.

What will be provided with the passwordless implementation service?

baseVISION’s passwordless implementation service supports your organization with the implementation of Microsoft Entra (Azure AD) and Windows passwordless features to reduce the password surface while protecting your users and increasing the convenience for secure authentication. The service consists of the following deliverables:

  • Workshop: During the workshop, we provide you an overview of Microsoft Entra (Azure AD) and Windows passwordless features and help you to identify missing prerequisites to introduce passwordless features

  • Initial Setup and Configuration: We support you getting Windows Hello for Business, Temporary Access Pass, Microsoft Authenticator Phone sign-in and FIDO2 key sign-In up and running in your environment

  • Documentation: The documentation provides you with the most relevant information about passwordless features, their configuration and operational tasks

Scenarios

  • Windows Hello for Business Sign-In with biometrics (fingerprint, face recognition) or PIN

  • Phone Sign-In with Microsoft Authenticator

  • FIDO2 Key Sign-In for Windows and Azure AD

  • Bootstrap and recovery of MFA setup with temporary access pass
