Moving to strong passwordless authentication.
How one German Federal Agency has killed the password and improved security and user experience.
A German Federal Agency recognized the need to evolve its workforce authentication. The organization had identified its password-based approach as a low-security solution that was delivering a poor user experience for its employees. A strong multi-factor authentication solution was required as the organization looked to ensure its employees could access government systems simply and securely.
CRYPTAS Deutschland GmbH was the chosen organization to deliver the 2FA solution. The CRYPTAS solution offered a combination of smart cards for employees to use crypto-backed authentication into IT resources and a feature-rich credential management software solution in Intercede’s MyID for issuing and managing digital identities across the agency’s employees. MyID also presented a user-friendly solution for the organization’s IT teams to manage the 2FA deployment and self-service options for employees to self-manage their smart cards.
