NoPassword IAM and Multi-Factor Authentication delivers security and convenience while improving user privacy
Password Security Concerns
Over 85% of cyber-attacks are caused by stolen credentials, phishing, social engineering, and keyloggers – all of which, target passwords. Even the most complex and lengthy password is not immune to this wide range of attacks. Workforce commonly reuse passwords across personal accounts and enterprise resources, which results in higher security risks. This means that, due to an increasing number of compromised properties (e.g. Dropbox, LinkedIn, Yahoo, etc.), hackers already have a way into your company’s data through already compromised passwords.
Customers and workforce are suffering from password friction and fatigue as a result of a growing number of passwords and increasing requirements for password complexity. Given that most consumers have over 150 unique logins across large and small online properties, password managers become too complex and have meager penetration; therefore, most individuals rely on “forgot password” and abandon engagement, or resort to unsafe online practices. Web and mobile application customers and workforce users are anxiously waiting for an innovative solution that eliminates the effort and frustration associated with passwords, while preserving or even increasing security.
Conventional 2nd Factor Weaknesses
Conventional 2nd factor authentication solutions add an extra layer of security to passwords, but at the expense of more complexity and friction. Users disfavor the inconvenience of this added layer since it requires them to enter long SMS-based codes (e.g. One-time passwords or OTPs), which leads user to unsafe behavior, thereby making 2nd factors ineffective and insecure. Moreover, second factors still suffer from major security weaknesses that prove vulnerable to mobile banking malware (e.g. Spy.Agent, Acecard, and GM Bot) and complex attacks that compromise OTPs. Don’t settle for outdated conventional second-factor authentication solutions.
NoPassword – Security By Design
With NoPassword, attackers can no longer perform remote logins, social engineering, phishing, or keyloggers.
The NoPassword solution is uniquely secure against cyber attacks that other existing identity management and multi-factor authentication solutions – based on conventional credentials – are vulnerable to. With NoPassword, attackers can no longer perform remote logins or phishing. Because authentication requires the attacker to physically possess the intended target’s mobile device, it is reasonable to assume that compromising millions of users’ credentials is impossible. The NoPassword mobile application takes advantage of comprehensive data protection methods (e.g. complex encryption) that prevent hackers from intercepting and tampering with the attained information.
Security By Design
Personally Identifiable Information
NoPassword – Privacy By Design
Personally Identifiable Information (PII), such as biometrics and passwords, is NOT centrally concentrated or stored on the NoPassword servers. Instead, each user securely retains their PII on their mobile device, which means users are in full control of their private information. Neither the NoPassword team nor the enterprise system admins have access to users’ credentials and other PII.
NoPassword Enhances User Experience
NoPassword is designed for today’s digital and modern workspace. NoPassword substitutes users’ passwords and conventional 2 factors by leveraging human (biometrics) and hidden (frictionless) multi-factor authentication. NoPassword not only delivers a higher level of security but also enhances user experience. Our case study of enterprise workforce and customers using NoPassword solution demonstrates that NoPassword significantly decreases the time and inconvenience associated with authentication problems that are caused by passwords and 2 factors. Organizations, whose employees initially resisted implementing 2 factors, are now reporting that their employees are asking for NoPassword deployment for all of their resources. Enterprises that offer NoPassword to their customers realize dramatic drops in the number of password reset requests and increases in user logins and traffic.
No service interruption, no password to remember, no second factor token to enter, users quickly access their account using their biometrics.

NoPassword Reliability and Scalability
NoPassword multi-tier and fault-tolerant architecture provides for 99.999% of uptime with low Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and low Recovery Time Object (RTO), irrespective of hosting options (on-prem or SaaS). The NoPassword solution is designed for the cloud. It is based on trusted commercial infrastructure, which leverages elasticity to meet large and even gatecrash spikes in login activity. NoPassword on-prem deployments can be run from one or two data centers in either active-active or active-passive deployment architectures.
Pushing Security and Authentication Boundaries
NoPassword strong authentication solution is FIDO UAF certified. However, we believe, while FIDO is an important step in the right direction, it does not provide the ultimate security required for today’s world. This is why NoPassword goes beyond FIDO requirements, adding multi-layers of encryptions, state-of-the-art key management, and hidden multi-factor authentications on top of FIDO requirement.
