E10 – On The Horizon:
FIDO2 Support and Login Risk Score are now available in VMware Workspace ONE Access
Today, we are excited to announce the availability of two important new features in VMware Workspace ONE Access: Support for FIDO2 passwordless authentication and Login Risk Score.
We first announced these features just a few short months ago at VMworld 2020, and they join our recently released support for multifactor authentication integrated directly into Intelligent Hub.
Together, all of these features are part of our comprehensive set of conditional access capabilities, which also includes device compliance.
We all know just how important access and authentication are. According to the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, stolen or brute forced credentials are involved in more than 80% of breaches classified as hacking. This threat has become much more common and dangerous with the rise of work from home and the increased time that employees are spending at their computers. Clearly, the time is right to implement stronger authentication and access control features.
