468: WWPass – How PassHub Is Protecting User Credentials
WWPass is a global cybersecurity company that provides identity, authentication, and access management (IAM) technology. The company battles data breaches and identity theft with advanced authentication and data storage technology to deliver a user experience as convenient as it is secure.
WWPass serves individuals, small and midsized businesses, as well as enterprises in higher education, e-commerce and other industries that need to provide their customers and employees with superior security and convenience. Given authentication is heating up with the popularity of biometrics I thought it was time to have a conversation with Perry Chaffee, VP of strategy at authentication company WWPass and makers of password manager PassHub.
“Usernames and passwords are obsolete, and still result in lost time, resources, data, revenue and other countless frustrations for companies and customers alike,” advises Perry Chaffee, VP of strategy for WWPass. “Since outdated logins are still widely exploited, we created PassHub as a way for people to safely organize their credentials until they are eventually replaced with passwordless sign-on like PassKey Lite or similar levels of authentication to meet the needs of today’s customers.”
In a previous life, Perry was in the Air Force and knows the ramifications of data breaches on personal information firsthand, having his files compromised in the widespread OPM hack. Perry considers himself a leader, project manager & technical marketer on a mission at Worldwide Pass to battle identify theft & data breaches by arming governments, companies & consumers with advanced authentication & data storage technology to deliver a user experience as convenient as it is secure.
On today’s show, Perry discusses how companies can get rid of usernames altogether, as well as recapture revenue instead of leaving it on the table with each customers’ “Forgot your password?” abandonment. We discuss the current flawed authentication process that companies have in place; and how to improve the systems for media/entertainment, e-commerce & retail, financial and other regulated organizations.
