Six decades in, password use has tipped into the absurd, while two-factor authentication is showing its limits. We talk with Matt Salisbury of Honeybadger HQ, which is using AI and machine learning to re-imagine knowledge-based authentication.
Life After The Password
The username and password have defined security for more than half a century. In recent years, however, they’ve emerged as the Achilles Heel in almost every enterprise security program. How do we move beyond the password and what does security look like without them? We explore that question in this series of podcasts.
In this episode of the podcast (#199), sponsored by LastPass, we talk with Shareth Ben of Securonix about how massive layoffs that have resulted from the COVID pandemic put organizations at far greater risk of data theft. In our second segment, we’re joined by Barry McMahon, a Senior Global Product Marketing Manager at LogMeIn, to talk about data from that company that weighs the security impact of poor password policies and what a “passwordless” future might look like.
