Intercede to Launch Enterprise Managed FIDO Authentication with YubiKeys at Authenticate 2023

Passwordless and Phishing Resistant Authentication for Microsoft Windows Logon, Legacy Applications and Cloud  

Intercede, the global leader in digital identities, today announced that it will launch a solution for Enterprise Managed FIDO Authentication, at Authenticate 2023 in California. Passwords, PKI and Windows Hello for Business can all be replaced with highly secure and phishing-resistant FIDO authentication, using Intercede’s enterprise multi-factor authentication (MFA) software and the award-winning YubiKey hardware authentication security key, from its FIDO technology partner – Yubico.

Last year it was reported that Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems were installed on approximately 1.4 billion active devices, a large percentage of which will be used for work purposes. Within a single enterprise, a plethora of different mechanisms are being used to login to Windows with varying degrees of security, convenience and cost. By launching Enterprise Managed FIDO with YubiKeys, Intercede is enabling organisations to centralise and standardise the entire process of logging on and accessing applications (whether the user is operating online or offline) in a way that meets the FIDO Alliance aim for ‘Simpler, Stronger Authentication.’

“We’re pleased to partner with Intercede on its new solution to make the log-on process more secure and streamlined,” said Derek Hanson, VP of Solutions Architecture and Alliances . “With the cyber threat landscape continuing to evolve rapidly, solutions that benefit from the use of FIDO credentials are more critical than ever.”

Intercede’s expertise providing solutions to federal and state organisations, as well as large enterprises across a wide range of sectors, partnered with Yubico’s YubiKey technology, offer an attainable and critical solution for further adoption of FIDO authentication.

Chief Product Officer at Intercede, Allen Storey, states: “Until now, this level of authentication was the preserve of the largest enterprises and public administrations who can afford to invest in complex PKI-based solutions. This new solution brings the benefits of secure and simple FIDO authentication to the Enterprise, regardless as to whether the organisation is using on-premise, desktop, cloud or different versions of Windows.”

Intercede and Yubico are both sponsors of Authenticate 2023, a conference dedicated to the who, what, why and how of user authentication – with a focus on the FIDO standards-based approach. The event will take place from October 16 – 18, at the Omni La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, California. Registration for Authenticate 2023 is open now, with virtual attendance options available.
