Axiad is participating in Authenticate 2021 Conference, hosted by the FIDO Alliance as a space for the industry to discuss best practices for deploying modern authentication.

“We’re thrilled to join the FIDO Alliance, especially as FIDO2 becomes increasingly important for the future of passwordless authentication. What makes FIDO2 such an appealing authentication standard is not only its wide adoption in the enterprise ecosystem but also the fact it supports the use of strong embedded credentials in end-user computers and devices today,” said Yves Audebert, Co-founder and Co-CEO of Axiad.

“This bound credential option greatly improves the user experience while providing a great level of security and reducing the overall cost of deployment. Here at Axiad we look forward to partnering with the FIDO Alliance and its stakeholders to help simplify and accelerate the adoption of passwordless authentication for our customers,” Audebert added.
