As organizations transition from traditional castle-and-moat to zero trust security strategies, they need to strengthen and enhance their authentication processes. Afterall, before you can trust someone, you need to ensure they are who they say they are.
However, traditional authentication presents a challenge: passwords are inherently insecure. Easy-to-remember passwords are weak and strong passwords are hard to remember, leading to account compromise via guessing, brute force attacks, password sharing, password reuse, and credential stuffing.
Multifactor authentication (MFA) is just a band aid. MFA still relies on passwords. Many MFA techniques are prone to social engineering attacks, including phishing and push bombing. And MFA introduces user friction.
For security professionals concerned about securing remote access to their apps and infrastructure in a zero trust world, join this panel to discover how Palo Alto Networks has partnered with Okta to provide passwordless authentication for Prisma Access zero trust network access.
