Secret Double Octopus release addresses phishing with passwordless MFA

Secret Double Octopus release addresses phishing with passwordless MFA
 

Secret Double Octopus (SDO) has released new features described as phishing-resistant passwordless MFA (multi-factor authentication) with biometrics support for customers relying on password-centric directories.

The new capabilities enable companies using SDO’s Octopus platform to comply with a United States government executive order pushing entities to be more phishing resistant through MFA mandates and meet its cyber insurance criteria.

According to Shimrit Tzur-David, CSO of SDO, enterprises can leverage the company’s new phishing-resistant features without having to redesign applications or identity directories.

The update aims to replace passwords with biometric mobile push, FIDO2 and legacy smart card certificates to access password directories.

“Directory infrastructure changes can be disruptive,” Tzur-David says. ” Our first step is to decouple the user from passwords so IT can increase agility and control on the path to modernizing the identity infrastructure.”

As a result of the new features, Tzur-David said, enterprise applications and services work as they have while meeting passwordless and phishing requirements.

Secret Double Octopus will discuss the new capabilities and, more generally, how MFA can stop modern phishing attacks in a marketing webinar February 1st. Registration is now open.

The company has also recently partnered with consulting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers in India to help businesses meet regulations for MFA.
