732: Secret Double Octopus Plan to Eliminate Passwords
By 2022, Gartner’s latest report predicts 60% of large and global enterprises, and 90% of midsize enterprises (MSEs), will implement passwordless methods in more than 50% of use cases. In its December 2018 Market Guide for User Authentication, Gartner included Secret Double Octopus as a Representative Vendor in the user authentication category, and for good reason, as they are pioneering the passwordless workplace.
Secret Double Octopus is pioneering the password-free workplace. Its high-assurance authentication solutions are built on provably unbreakable cryptography that is highly resistant to attacks and provides a superior user experience. The technology behind the company is based on secret sharing algorithms originally developed to protect nuclear launch codes, the app initiates a multi-layered authentication process for users in order to verify or reject the login attempt, payment, or transaction.
The company was also featured by Business Insider as a ‘Startup that will boom in 2018’, PwC game-changer for Global Financial Services Innovation, and recipient of the Frost and Sullivan ‘Technology Innovation Award’. Its customer-base includes US, European and Asian companies.
Secret Double Octopus prides itself in being the only solution offering a high assurance password-free authentication with access to both legacy and cloud applications. They also provide high-frequency auto rotation for active directory passwords and multi-factor authentication using quantum-safe algorithms.
