HYPR launches Velocity Partner Program to encourage spread of passwordless authentication

HYPR has announced the Velocity Partner Program, a new channel-based network aimed at the adoption of passwordless, decentralized authentication solutions.

The Program will enable HYPR’s cybersecurity partners to deliver the company’s True Passwordless Authentication Platform directly to their enterprise and government customers.

The new network counts 30 industry partners, including Blacklake Security, ForgeRock, Acuant, and the Consortium Networks, among others.

“True Passwordless authentication has become essential, as more and more organizations realize the risk and cost associated with passwords, especially during this time with remote working,” commented Larry Pfeifer, founder of Consortium Networks.

The list of companies in the Velocity Partner Program includes experts in a variety of security-adjacent fields, including solution resellers, system integrators, and technology partners.

“As a partner of the new Velocity Partner Program, we are showing up to accelerate passwordless authentication while driving innovation and evolving how businesses protect their networks from the inside-out,” Pfeifer added.

According to the Consortium Networks founder, passwordless authentication would be the best way of making multi-factor authentication (MFA) truly secure.

“With HYPR, businesses are finally able to solve the desktop MFA gap, eliminate customer passwords, and deliver lightning-fast login experiences their users have come to expect.”

HYPR is far from the only company in the security industry pushing towards passwordless authentication. In July, biometrics authentication expert Nok Nok Labs brought passwordless FIDO biometrics and hardware authentication to ForgeRock. A month later, passwordless authentication pioneer Trusona announced a substantial update to its suite of products, introducing compatibility with Windows 10 machines. More recently, wearable solutions firm Nymi released a version of its Nymi Band integrating biometric passwordless access control.

The full list of companies in the Velocity Partner Program and more information about the new initiative is available from the HYPR Velocity Partner Program page.
