New authentication technologies can help boost online success

What authentication technologies make logging in both simple and secure, for customers and companies? This podcast explores authentication techniques that can boost sales and security.

A time-consuming or frustrating login process can undermine potential online sales, though a process that is easy but not secure will hurt companies' bottom line. Enterprises need to feel confident in customer payment credentials; customers need to be able to buy online with the least amount of frustration.

The entire customer password process too often turns out to be too frustrating and too insecure, and security pros are working now to replace the system. Tune in to this podcast to learn which new authentication technologies will make logging in both simple and secure.

So say goodbye to passwords and prepare yourself now for the coming (and we mean imminent) revolution in online authentication.
