State of Passwordless Security


Get Fresh Insight into Top IAM Attack Vectors, Security Gaps and How Passwordless Authentication Fits In

The 2023 State of Passwordless Security report investigates conventional and passwordless authentication risks, impacts, threats and adoption trends. The report is based on  independent research from interviews with 1,000 IT security professionals at organizations across multiple geographies and sectors.


1,000 IT security professionals from organizations around the globe were surveyed


increase in push attacks (MFA bombing) from the previous year


of organizations reported authentication-related breaches over the last 12 months


of organizations kept their insecure authentication even after a breach


indicate a passwordless approach would increase productivity


spent per organization on breaches caused by weak authentication


spent on password-related help desk issues


The study findings show that the consequences of that inaction are becoming impossible to ignore, both in terms of security risks and business impacts...Change won’t happen overnight but I believe when we look back at this period, we will mark it as the beginning.
