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.
