Benefits of Using FIDO Authentication


In Episode S2E22, we examine Fast ID Online (FIDO) standards-based authentication that ends reliance on passwords, protects user credentials, and resists phishing attacks. FIDO supports the remote pandemic-era workforce by ensuring critical data residing on home-based systems and mobile devices remains secure and uncompromised.


Our guest, Steven Humphreys, CEO of Identiv, answers questions such as:

  • Why are home networks so much more vulnerable to malicious attacks than corporate networks?
  • Why is the use of passwords no longer advisable?
  • What devices are FIDO2 security keys compatible with?

Join us for a fascinating conversation that may change how you authenticate online.
