"The password is officially dead...they just don't meet the challenge for anything you really want to secure."
Bill Gates, 2004
The most successful hacks go after passwords and people. There are many solutions, but moving away from usernames and passwords as your primary authentication will stop even the most clever attacks.
AN ATTEMPT TO DISGUISE AN EMAIL OR WEBSITE AS A TRUSTWORTHY ENTITY, TRICKING USERS INTO GIVING UP INFORMATION.
A common email scheme targets company email accounts in attempts to either disrupt the network or steal valuable data. With an open rate of 30%, this is the most successful method of stealing login info.
Guessing will eventually work: Passwords like '123456' and 'password' barely require any snooping. Beyond that, programs called password crackers systematically try all possibilities. Both styles of intrusion are why passwords without strong additional factors of authentication have to go.
ROGUE INTERCEPTION OF USERNAMES AND PASSWORDS THROUGH SCAM OR IDENTITY THEFT.
Hackers have developed multiple effective strategies to steal user information. Whether they impersonate users or a company rep, a well-run scam will eventually. Email and text messages can also get intercepted through various schemes, allowing password extraction through the communication.
ATTACKERS GAIN ACCESS TO STORED COPIES OF USER PASSWORDS ON SERVERS.
These intrusions often go unnoticed, meaning your password on a major company's website will never be truly safe. Password-less login with an asymmetrical authentication system means you never have to worry about server-side breaches.
81% of confirmed data breaches are from weak/default/stolen passwords.
71% of people use the same passwords across multiple accounts.
40% of people suffer some form of security breach each year.
Encryption, Fragmentation, Dispersion.
Usernames and passwords are fundamentally flawed, so adding two-factor or multiple factors of authentication is a quick fix at best. WWPass doesn't just offer industry-proven encryption in a segmented data structure; we actively utilize the correct factors of authentication. Without relying on exploitable and simple character strings to log you in, you're sealing the biggest cracks in your security foundation.
