YubiKey Two-Factor Authentication Solution

1. The importance of passwordless authentication

The importance of passwordless authentication

Account information theft is becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex

Cyberattacks to steal passwords hijacking personal accounts cause billions of dollars in damage to businesses every year. According to a report by American multinational telecommunications company Verizon, 81% of data breaches occur due to weak, stolen, or reused passwords. The cause of the data breach leading to major losses could stem from employees using weak passwords.

Traditional authentication is no longer secure

Traditional authentication methods, which only rely on passwords and one-time authentication (OTP), are no longer strong enough to protect accounts against modern and sophisticated cyberattacks. In fact, this method has been bypassed in many ways in recent times, for example, hackers create fake websites to trick users into entering OTP, malware steals OTP on SMS or email.

The need for an optimal solution to current security problems

According to experts, the solution to combat account intrusion attacks is to use passwordless authentication for login. Passwordless authentication is now becoming the mainstream trend, adopted by many organizations around the world. Vietnam and other countries in the region are also in the process of transitioning from traditional authentication to passwordless authentication.
