Top Asset Management Firm
1Kosmos delivers a passwordless authentication experience to improve employee experience and reduce reliance on legacy authentication platforms.
The asset management firm recognized that user experience held a major role in securing the organization and its assets. The executive team and the board members made it a corporate priority to improve both security and user experience. After a failed deployment of a top passwordless vendor, they turned to 1Kosmos to meet its user experience and security requirements.
Deliver a Superior User Experience
The asset management firm set a corporate objective in 2021 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 biometrics and user experience. Currently, 1Kosmos BlockID manages 20,000 weekly passwordless authentications.
Replace Existing Authentication
The executive team and Board of Directors made passwordless access a top priority in 2021. 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 firm reconsidered its relationship and selected 1Kosmos to fulfill its passwordless journey and to replace its legacy 2FA solution.
The organization required a solution to meet its global requirements to integrate with the current and future infrastructure and international demands. Integrations 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.
Support for Remote Workforce
The asset management firm needed to ensure a secure passwordless experience. This was a key factor in why the organization selected the 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.
