UniFi Identity Enterprise is committed to rethinking IT and delivering the best solutions to meet your needs. Today, we are proud to announce a groundbreaking product that simplifies the way we sign in: Passwordless Sign-In.
Passwordless sign-in allows you to sign in to UniFi Identity Enterprise using Passkeys (i.e., Touch ID on Mac, Face ID on iPhone, Windows Hello, Android biometrics, and FIDO2 Security Keys) or UniFi Verify mobile app, without entering a password.
What Are Passkeys and Verify Mobile App?
Passkeys, a phishing-resistant alternative to passwords, are a cryptographic entity that provides a faster, easier, and more secure sign-in experience. Each passkey is unique to the specific website or app it is created for, thereby protecting against phishing, man-in-the-middle attacks, brute force attacks, credential stuffing, and other malicious activities.
Verify Mobile App
The Verify mobile app enables users to verify their accounts conveniently through their mobile devices. Its robust security measures make migration or cloning difficult. The app leverages the detailed sign-in context on push notifications and the Number Matching feature, requiring users to confirm their sign-in by tapping or entering the number displayed on the sign-in page. The Verify mobile app establishes a secure layer of protection for user accounts.
Why Is Going Passwordless Important?
Since the early 2000s, high-profile data breaches involving companies like Yahoo, eBay, and Adobe have brought password vulnerabilities to the forefront. It has become increasingly evident that passwords pose risks to authentication systems, increasing IT costs while negatively impacting the user experience and productivity.
Why Do You Need Passwordless Sign-In?
Passkeys and the Verify mobile app provide a more secure approach to account verification compared to passwords, which rely solely on the user's knowledge. They authenticate something the user owns (such as a mobile device) and something they are (such as biometric data), thus enhancing the overall security of the authentication process.
Minimize IT Cost
Passwords pose significant challenges for IT admins in managing repetitive tasks such as creating, rotating, and resetting passwords, as well as implementing password policies, educational training, and awareness initiatives.
Now you can say goodbye to these time-consuming tasks. With passwordless sign-in, the burden is lifted, and substantial savings can be achieved.
By removing the need for passwords, organizations can minimize the productivity losses caused by password-related issues, such as forgotten passwords or frequent resets. This alleviates interruptions for employees, enabling them to concentrate on their tasks and ultimately enhancing overall productivity.
Improve User Experience
No more the hassle of remembering and resetting passwords. Sign in effortlessly with passkeys and experience the sheer delight of swift account access in just two clicks. Experience streamlined authentication like never before.
