Still using passwords? Here’s why you won’t be next year.
By Microsoft Azure
We are living in amazing times. The old security paradigms no longer fly. We need to transform our approach to security always. The only people in the world who love passwords are hackers.

That will cut your exposure by 99.99%. That being said, the response for MFA has no been great as it’s not user friendly enough. We are shifting from a world where usernames & passwords are the standard to a world where Passwordless Authentication is the standard.Read More
