Take 3 Steps Toward Passwordless Authentication

“Eliminating login passwords can improve both UX and security, but passwordless authentication is not a discrete technology or a distinct market. SRM leaders responsible for IAM must carefully identify their objectives and options to prioritize time to value along the path to a passwordless future.”

ID G00745034

Passwordless authentication is a method of user authentication that eliminates the need for a password. Instead, it uses alternative methods such as biometrics, single-use codes sent via SMS or email, or security keys to authenticate the user. The goal is to provide a more secure and convenient way of accessing accounts without the need to remember complex passwords.

Gartner, a company that delivers actionable, objective insight to its executive and their teams, demonstrates 3 steps to take towards passwordless authentication:

  • Craft a flexible roadmap
  • Minimize time to value
  • Prepare for universal adoption
