Which authentication methods should we use? This is one of the most common questions you'll need to address as you roll out multi-factor authentication (MFA) across your organization. It’s critical to build a holistic MFA strategy that utilizes the right methods in the right places.
While traditional MFA methods such as phone-based or hardware tokens sometimes make sense, all too often there are use cases where these just won’t cut it or trust needs to go beyond simply confirming a device or token. That’s where Identity-Bound Biometrics comes in -- providing a quick and secure authentication method that verifies the person, not just their device. With the advent of new techniques for capturing biometrics, such as mobile apps, companies are incorporating biometrics into their employee- and customer-facing MFA strategies in ways that previously weren’t possible.
This session will help you decide where in your business to prioritize biometrics-based authentication by demonstrating some of the most sensible industry uses cases for the technology.
