Microsoft’s blog post explores Accenture’s journey as they adopted passwordless authentication.

With cyber-attacks on the rise, phishing has become the primary method used by attackers to compromise user data. Now, even though multifactor authentication (MFA) defeats over 90% of password breaches, it isn’t immune to phishing. Microsoft’s vision for a passwordless world emphasizes FIDO 2.0-powered inherently phish-resistant credentials like Windows Hello for Business and FIDO 2.0 External Security Keys. Accenture’s implantation includes over 500,000 users primarily using Windows Hello For Business, 200,000 Phone Sign in users, over 10,000 FIDO2 key users, and an 80% drop in day-to-day usage of passwords across the enterprise.
