5 Reasons to Transition your Business to Passwordless Authentication
No matter what industry you’re in, you’ve got to be prepared to grow and evolve over time. What worked five or ten years ago isn’t necessarily what’s best for your company now, and it’s always smart to look ahead—especially when technology is involved, and definitely if data protection is an issue.
Password-based technology worked reasonably well for a long time, but hackers have made passwords vulnerable in a way that can seriously harm your business and your customers. Fortunately, there’s a better way to protect data with BlokSec. Here are five reasons to transition your business to phishing resistant passwordless authentication right now.
To avoid fraud
When data is compromised, identity theft is a significant threat to everyone involved. In addition to potential financial loss due to fraud, hackers can gain access to sensitive personal information including contact information, health records, and more. There was a 773% increase in peer-to-peer payment fraud between 2016 and 2019, and 81% of organizations report being a target to fraud attempts. Those figures are astounding and businesses need to implement serious preventative strategies. Going passwordless with BlokSec is an effective, user-friendly way to protect data and avoid fraud. After all, when there are no passwords involved, hackers are stopped before they can get started.
To save money
Your business could lose money as a result of a data breach but perhaps more commonly, businesses lose money due to lost productivity related to password-based account access. IT departments spend an average of 2.5 months per year dealing with lost or forgotten passwords. Employees spend hours on end dealing with similar issues while on the clock. By eliminating passwords, that time loss is eliminated. Better productivity results in better profits, and your business can thrive.
To be more efficient
Even when passwords aren’t lost or compromised, using them slows down workers and customers alike. It is exponentially more efficient to tap your finger on a sensor or look at a facial scanner instead of typing in a combination of letters, numbers and special characters. The future of business is faster than ever, and it doesn’t involve passwords.
To create a better user experience
Eliminating passwords gets rid of all of the pain points associated with identity and data protection. It’s intuitive, efficient and incredibly secure, so employees, business partners and customers alike are delighted by the experience. There is truly no downside to going passwordless—just a long list of benefits.
To keep up with the pace of innovation
According to research by Gartner, 60% of large and global businesses and 90% of medium-sized businesses will implement passwordless methods in more than 50% of use cases by 2022. That percentage has shot up in the past three years and will only continue to grow. The implication is huge.
Passwordless authentication isn’t a passing trend. In the years to come, it will be the predominant way individuals authenticate their identity online. Passwordless organizations today benefit from increased security, reduced operating costs and an improved user interface. It’s time to join them or fall behind — there really is nothing in between.

In an era dominated by digital interactions, ensuring the security of our online identities has never been more critical. Phishing attacks, a prevalent form of cybercrime, trick individuals into revealing sensitive information. In this blog post, we explore the concept of phishing-resistant authentication, its methods, benefits, and how it’s reshaping the landscape of online security.
Passwords are a weak link in the security chain and can easily be compromised through phishing attempts. By removing the need for passwords altogether, higher education institutions can benefit from improved security, increased convenience, and reduced IT costs.
The acceleration of digital transformation has fueled the adoption of mobile and cloud technologies and we can no longer have a network perimeter-centric view of security. Instead, we need to securely enable access for various users – employees, partners, contractors, etc. – regardless of their location, device or network. We review how Passwordless authentication lays the foundation for a Zero Trust Architecture by providing the highest level security and a frictionless user experience.
