7) How is LoginRadius helping its consumers and business owners prepare for a password-less future?
An authentication method is called password-less when no password is being stored. Instead, the companies’ customers access their site or application through an access code or link that they send to their phone or email. One of the most well-known passwords-less strategies being used today is One Time Password (OTP). A no-password solution means better security and no-bother sign-ins. In a previous couple of years, biometric authentication has become quite prevalent and incorporates Fingerprint, Facial Recognition, Voice Authentication, and Gesture Biometrics.
CIAM programming enables companies to connect their application or site to a 3rd party supplier that their customer uses. Along these lines, customers can also sign-in to their application or site utilizing their current accreditations as opposed to making another password — Eg-Sign In with Apple. Any individual who uses Apple will never need to recall a password when connecting to the integrated 3rd-party apps.
8) What are the challenges of username/password authentication?
Passwords are extremely vulnerable. Some of the common reasons are as follows-
- Password complexity is weak- Due to password dictionaries; passwords may meet complexity yet be considered weak.
- Passwords aren’t unique- People often reuse passwords, and newly leaked dictionaries contain previously leaked passwords.
- Passwords follow patterns- In most cases; the top 100 patterns will crack the majority of passwords in an organization.
- Password cracking is easy- With the available hardware sources, it only takes seconds to crack open most passwords.
9) What is your roadmap for 2019?
We have an exceptionally aggressive objective for the Indian market, and we’re going to double headcount in a couple of years. At present, we have 70-80 individuals in India, but by the end of 2020, this number will probably be 250-300. We’re likewise looking at expanding our client base in India since we have seen gigantic development in the market where organizations, as well as the government, are going digital. The most important challenge is to build a good team that has a superior understanding of cybersecurity and a decent specialized methodology in this field, whether it is development, sales or marketing.
