Addressing the threat of data breaches in a vulnerable landscape

With data breaches on the rise and remote work the new normal, the need for robust and user-friendly workforce authentication is more critical. According to Gartner, ‘By 2025, more than 50% of the workforce and more than 20% of customer authentication transactions will be passwordless, up from less than 10% now.’ Moreover, the current state of data security is concerning, with 74% of all data breaches including a human element, with people being involved either via error, privilege misuse, use of stolen credentials, or social engineering, costing an average of USD 4.5 million globally.'

Fostering a passwordless future

DIGIPASS FX1 BIO revolutionises authentication, rendering it faster, more secure, and user-friendly while reducing authentication friction. It provides a cost-efficient, adaptable, and future-proof solution that overcomes traditional multi-factor authentication limitations. With DIGIPASS FX1 BIO, organisations can safeguard employees, partners, and corporate resources while enabling a flexible 'work from anywhere, anytime, on any device' policy without compromising security.
