The end of passwords

Adopt modern authentication technologies to provide ease of use without the risk of passwords.

Improve security

Reduce the risk of phishing and password spray and replay attacks by switching to a passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution.

Give your users an easy, convenient way to sign in and access data from anywhere.

Manage at scale

Use an identity and access management solution to enable single sign-in, manage MFA options, and apply conditional access policies for all your users.

What people are saying

“Windows Hello for Business is personal, simple, and provides a brilliant user experience with high security. Our people love logging on with their fingerprint or face.”

“Security devices fit nicely with our current scenarios. They are simple to deploy and easy to use. We see value in rolling FIDO2-enabled badges to all our staff in the future.”

Emirates IT

“Today, biometric technology is providing two-thirds of Microsoft employees with a simple authentication method (backed up with a PIN) that is always with them. No more eight-character long, letters, numbers, symbols, forgettable passwords!”

"I think one of the fears that people have is that new technology is just going to be more complicated, and not realize that we’ve pushed to make it simpler and better."
