Security & Usability for the Digital Transformation

To achieve transformative business objectives, stay competitive and meet user expectations, enterprises are undergoing a digital transformation, also known as Passwordless modernization.

Enterprises are migrating from legacy systems to the cloud, resulting in hybrid environments. Consumer markets are driving the push toward usable, mobile technology and always-on, always-available cloud, web-based applications. This move to the cloud includes both customers and all types of enterprise users – including employees, contractors, vendors, partners, etc.

This shift to a decentralized, identity-centric and Passwordless operational model has placed increased importance on ensuring secure access for users. The future of authentication demands both a secure and usable method of authorizing users to both cloud and on-premises systems.

The origin of the password arrived in the mid-1960s at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with the development of the Compatible Time-Sharing System (CTSS), according to Computer History and Wired. It allowed hundreds of users to share the computer with a common mainframe. The password was developed as an accounting tool to allow users access to their specific resources for a certain amount of time.
