CyberArk has recently introduced a new feature that supports passkeys for passwordless authentication. This added capability will allow Identity customers to speed up the adoption of passwordless authentication and minimize cyber threats by permitting the use of passkeys to securely access various applications and websites using robust authentication methods such as biometrics.
CyberArk’s Passkeys to Prevent Credential Abuse
Most data breaches begin with stealing or abusing credentials. Passkeys reduce attack surface and credential theft. Passkeys have been added to Identity, giving customers FIDO2-compliant credentials that are phishing-resistant. These credentials offer the strongest level of protection against identity theft and account takeover, and are NIST Authentical Assurance Level (AAL3) authentication methods. Passkeys can be utilized across user devices and even within physical proximity, improving user experience by simplifying and speeding up authentication flows.
CyberArk Identity Comes with Multiple SaaS Solutions
CyberArk Identity offers a range of SaaS solutions that aim to make enterprise identity and access management easy to handle, while ensuring a high level of security. As part of the CyberArk Identity Security Platform, CyberArk Identity helps modern businesses overcome challenges related to user authentication, authorization, and identity management that arise due to business transformation initiatives.
CyberArk Identity supports YubiKey One Time Passcode (OTP) for secure authentication. YubiKey is a widely recognized physical authentication device that complies with NIST 800-63B guidelines for Authentication Assurance Level 2 (AAL2). Users can securely authenticate to any application protected by CyberArk Identity using the OTP generated by their YubiKey.
Gil Rapaport, GM, Access, CyberArk, said, “Passwords are the weakest link in the security chain, and they are often the root cause of data breaches and cyberattacks. By introducing passkeys for passwordless authentication, we are further enabling our customers to eliminate passwords from their authentication workflows.”
