Survey says many companies want to phase out passwords
Don’t be surprised if your company decides to do away with password logins. A new survey has found that most organizations are leaning toward phasing out password authentication.
The results comes from Wakefield Research, which surveyed 200 IT decision makers in the U.S. last month. Sixty-nine percent of the respondents said they will probably do away with passwords completely in the next five years.
Password login systems, though commonplace, are too vulnerable to hacking, according to SecureAuth, the company that commissioned the study. Not surprisingly, SecureAuth sells alternatives to password-based logins.
