Passwords are becoming obsolete
Multi-factor authentication (mfa) and 2-factor authentication (2fa) is increasingly becoming the standard because it really protects your it-infrastructure. however, it is a hassle for your employees to remember personal passwords and possibly implement additional security measures. this is where password-less authentication methods come into play, which simply replaces the password. they follow the principle: something the user has, plus something the user knows.
A number of internationally recognized companies rely on the advantages of FIDO and certify their products for use with FIDO Passkeys.
Here you will find a growing list of companies, that adhere to using PASSKEYS.

Secure fingerprint access to the municipal network
In addition to flexible and well-organized employees, an IT security system is essential for smooth collaboration and easy switching between the office and home office. Therefore, it is important to have secure hardware and software available. We can help you implement two-factor authentication by using hardware tokens (OTP tokens) or biometric fingerprint-secured FIDO2 security keys, as recommended by the German Federal Office for Information Security, Microsoft and the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce, for example. FIDO stands for Fast Identity Online.
FIDO passkeys and OTP tokens enable secure, password-less multi-factor authentication that can be tailored to many identities, profiles, policies, devices, applications, programs, and firewalls.
Why are FIDO keys or OTP tokens more secure than passwords?
- No one wants to remember more and more passwords!
- Users tend to use the same passwords for multiple systems.
- Many employees use insecure applications on the same devices they use privately in order to access sensitive areas of corporate infrastructure from their home office.
- assword/username combinations are intentionally compromised through phishing, malware attacks or by hacking the servers themselves.
- Passwords are the cause of data breaches 81% of the time!
FIDO Keys and OTP tokens enable secure, password-less multi-factor authentication that can be customized for many identities, profiles, devices, applications, programs, and firewalls.
