Member Sponsorship and Co-marketing

The FIDO Alliance is working to change the nature of authentication with open standards that provide strong authentication experiences more secure than passwords and SMS OTPs, simpler for consumers to use, and easier for service providers to deploy and manage. As the world moves to FIDO standards for user authentication, the Alliance is dedicated to fostering and promoting a vibrant, global ecosystem by providing a variety of sponsorship opportunities and supportive marketing programs for its members.
