Passwordless vs Passwordless MFA

MFA requires more than one factor to authenticate a user. First generation MFA typically uses a password and layers on a one-time password, push notification, or magic link. This leaves the password in place, which is the biggest cause of fraud and breaches. The additional factors are also insecure as they are phishable and easily bypassed at scale.

Passwordless authentication refers to any authentication method that does not involve a password. It is not necessarily multi-factor. For example, if a service authenticates with only a magic link sent to the user's associated email, that magic link is the only factor used.

Beyond Identity's passwordless authentication is multi-factor and only uses phishing-resistant factors. We can completely replace passwords with asymmetric key pairs and local device biometrics to authenticate users strongly. It is also an improved user experience since there's no typing, copying codes, clicking links, or second devices involved.

How does passwordless login work?

While there are a variety of passwordless authentication methods, they are not created equal in terms of usability or security. For Beyond Identity, instead of a password users are authenticated with a public-private key pair (Universal Passkey) and their local device biometric or PIN.

For workforce authentication, organizations delegate authentication to Beyond Identity from their SSO to enable passwordless authentication. For customer authentication, organizations can integrate with Beyond Identity SDKs and APIs to deliver passwordless authentication natively within their web and mobile applications.

Is passwordless MFA NIST compliant?

Beyond Identity is FIDO certified and compliant with NIST 800-63 AAL3 when deployed as a component within a AAL3 compliant ecosystem.

Beyond Identity's Universal Passkeys are device-bound credentials that provides security beyond a character requirement for password complexity and isn’t a “commonly used, expected, or compromised” value. No hints, security questions, nor password resets are needed as the credential is tied to the device and user, and logging in is as simple as a click.

Additionally, Beyond Identity's continuous risk-based authentication enables MFA that is compliant with zero trust initiatives to deliver the highest assurance of user identity and device security. Learn more.
