Passkey Login for Desktop MFA: Advancing Security and User Experience

Nearly half (46%) of IT, security, and cybersecurity leaders say they still store passwords in shared office documents (2022 Hitachi ID Survey Report), which can be used to enable and elevate attacks. The often overlooked attack vector is our first login of the day — the desktop.

Still, organizations are asking, why alter the user’s login, and why now?

Bojan Simic, CEO at HYPR, and Ryan Rowcliffe, Field CTO at HYPR, aim to tackle these questions and discuss the future of desktop MFA with the modern user and evolving passkey use cases.
