The Challenge

The Asset Management Firm recognized the role user experience played in security. The executive team and board members made it a corporate priority to improve both the firm's security and the user experience. After a failed deployment of a top passwordless vendor, the organization turned to 1Kosmos to meet its user experience and security requirements.

The Results

Deliver a Superior User Experience 
The organization set a corporate objective to improve the user experience for their employees when authenticating. 1Kosmos was selected to securely authenticate users into their VPN, Windows, and macOS devices because of our advanced user biometrics and user experience. Currently, 1Kosmos BlockID manages 20,000 weekly passwordless authentications.
Streamline Deployment
The organization required a solution to meet its global requirements to integrate with the current and future infrastructure and international demands. Integration into ADFS, VPN (ZScaler), Windows and MacOS desktops were critical first steps to the deployment. The 1Kosmos connectors and API framework enabled a seamless rollout. 
Replace Existing Authentication
The executive team and Board of Directors made passwordless access a top priority. As a result, they purchased a passwordless solution from a top provider, only to encounter a security incident and issues with the user experience. As a result, the organization reconsidered its relationship and selected 1Kosmos to fulfill its passwordless journey. The organization also identified the 1Kosmos platform as a viable solution to replace their legacy 2FA deployment
Support a Remote Workforce
The organization needed to ensure a secure passwordless experience. This was a key factor in why the organization selected 1Kosmos BlockID. 1Kosmos identity-based passwordless authentication ensured a preferred experience where only authorized users accessed data or applications regardless of where they are based. 
By implementing 1Kosmos BlockID as the IdP, the asset management firm unified its approach to access management by combining 2FA and passwordless access into one common platform.
