HYPR rolls out passwordless employee access solution for MacOS
HYPR today announced the launch of its Employee Access solution for MacOS. With this roll out, HYPR becomes the first FIDO certified provider to enable mobile-initiated passwordless authentication for both MacOS and Windows platforms.
According to the announcement, the addition of MacOS marks a major milestone in expanding enterprise wide coverage of HYPR’s Decentralized Authentication Platform. With existing support for Windows 7, 8 and 10, the launch of MacOS rounds off the HYPR Employee Access offering.
HYPR moves user authentication keys to their personal mobile devices and secures them against hackers. Decentralized authentication eliminates the centralized password store and forces attackers to focus on each device individually, diffusing the mass credential breach.
“Bringing HYPR to the Mac is critical to our mission of deploying true password-less security across the enterprise,” explains George Avetisov, HYPR Corp. CEO. “It is well-known throughout the industry that complex passwords are costing business millions of dollars a year, with employees at large companies wasting thousands of hours on typing in passwords. When factoring in the large-scale breaches caused by credential stuffing, phishing and password reuse attacks – it is clear that eliminating passwords is a huge win for the C-Suite and IT teams.”
HYPR recently published a white paper co-authored with Alan Goode of Goode Intelligence to help enterprises distinguish between passwordless systems that improve security from those intended for convenience.
