IDmelon Technologies Inc. is happy to announce that IDmelon along with the other leading cyber-security players partnering with Microsoft has been on the short list for its Microsoft-compatible FIDO2 security keys.
No matter how strong passwords can be by making them to be long, a combination of different character types, unguessable, random, regularly changed, not reused, still stolen passwords are one of the most commonplace causes of data breaches. According to Gartner, 20% to 50% of all IT help desk calls are for password resets, which cost organizations time and resources. So, password resets only replace the problem with another problem.
FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) protocol which is the strongest standards-based authentication available is the best alternative. With FIDO, in addition to guaranteed security, users can have a convenient passwordless login experience. This standard uses security keys for passwordless authentication and is widely supported by all browsers, operation systems, and leading companies' products and services, including Microsoft, Google and Apple.
With the use of public key cryptography techniques, FIDO2 security keys can replace weak credentials with strong credentials that can't be reused, replayed, or shared across services to provide simpler, stronger authentication. Security keys enable you to safely authenticate to an Azure Active Directory joined Windows 10 device that’s part of your organization.
IDmelon, as a Microsoft partner, empowers you to have a secure digital life with offering innovative FIDO2 security keys and modern solutions and ensures that your security on Windows, the Microsoft Edge browser, and all Microsoft products and services is fully guaranteed.
