Passkeys: The Future of Secure Business Logins

As a business owner, safeguarding your company's data is paramount. Passkeys, a new authentication method, offer a significant leap forward in cybersecurity compared to traditional passwords. Let's explore passkeys' benefits and how they can enhance your business's security posture.

What are Passkeys?

Passkeys are a passwordless authentication system that utilizes public key cryptography. Unlike passwords, which are vulnerable to phishing and brute-force attacks, passkeys eliminate the need to store or transmit a password itself.

Here's how it works:

  • During account creation, a unique key pair is generated on the user's device (computer, phone) and the server of the website or application.
  • The private key remains securely stored on the user's device, while the public key is shared with the server.
  • To log in, the user verifies their identity with a fingerprint, facial recognition, or PIN. The device then signs a challenge using the private key, proving they possess the correct credentials.
Benefits of Passkeys for Businesses
  • Enhanced Security: Phishing attacks become obsolete as there's no password to steal. Additionally, passkeys are resistant to brute-force attacks.
  • Improved User Experience: Employees can log in faster and more conveniently using biometrics or PINs they already utilize for device unlocking.
  • Reduced IT Costs: Eliminating password resets and managing complex password policies saves valuable IT resources.
  • Universal Compatibility: Passkeys are standardized across platforms and browsers, offering flexibility for your workforce.
