MFA, Zero Trust, Passwordless and More - Blogs YOU Loved in 2019
Our top five blogs of 2019 included topics on MFA, Zero Trust, going Passwordless, SIM swaps and more.
Here at Idaptive, we are hard at work on loads of exciting updates and products for you to secure access everywhere in 2020. But in the midst of creating the “new”, we thought we’d pause to see what resonated most with blog readers in 2019, our first full year in business after spinning out from Centrify.
Not surprisingly, MFA-related blogs were the most popular, followed by a couple of blogs covering extremely hot topics: SIM swapping, and the FIDO2 standard, the latest in a set of standards that are making it possible for us to finally emancipate ourselves from the pesky password!
We hope you enjoy this recap of our top five blog posts of 2019, and we look forward to delivering more analysis, insight and guidance in 2020 that helps you in your own IAM journey.
