IT Brew: Enterprises and developers play leading role in passwordless future

Many industry pros are increasingly channeling their inner Bill Gates in 2004 and predicting the decline of the password. The PW prognosticating demonstrates some confidence in the IT world that a passwordless infrastructure is now sufficiently in place. “The most notable shift over the past couple of years has been that every major platform vendor is now supporting open standards for passwordless authentication that are in their flagship operating systems. So, this means for the first time that virtually every modern computing device has the capability to support passwordless authentication,” said Andrew Shikiar, executive director and chief marketing officer at FIDO.
