The Advanced Zero Trust Authentication Solution will be resold to WWT's customers after Beyond Identity Password less MFA is deployed internally

FREMONT, CA: The world is going passwordless and were delighted that WWT selected Beyond Identity to take their company there today, said Bill Hogan, CRO of Beyond Identity. Their entire go-to-market team can now personally vouch our unmatched user experience and with Beyond Identity available in WWTs Advanced Technology Center, their team can showcase important integrations with zero trust leaders like CrowdStrike and Zscaler.

 Global IT services and consulting firm World Wide Technology has partnered with Beyond Identity to provide phishing-resistant and passwordless multi-factor authentication. By engaging with Beyond Identity, WWT can leverage the authentication platform internally while acting as a global channel partner. Beyond Identity's passwordless, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is already being rolled out internally at WWT to its 8,000 employees.

Besides meeting phishing-resistant requirements, Beyond Identity's advanced solution also addresses zero-trust requirements. By using a combination of device biometrics and strong cryptographic passkeys, the solution eliminates the need for passwords and weak multi-factor authentication factors such as push notifications, one-time codes, and magic links. Through strong user authentication and an advanced policy engine, the solution provides zero trust and integrates additional risk signals from MDM, EDR, XDR, and ZTNA solutions as part of the authentication transaction and continuously afterward.

Modern cyber attacks have unfortunately surpassed traditional MFA technology, leaving organisations widely exposed, said Thomas Jermoluk, CEO of Beyond Identity. If theres a password, or other weak factors, theres an easily exploited attack vector for threat actors. Beyond Identity enables organisations to modernise their infrastructure and stay ahead of hackers. 

After evaluating a strategic partnership with Beyond Identity, it was clear that they could provide value to our company beyond just an industry relationship, said Jim Kavanaugh, CEO of WWT. We were blown away by Beyond Identitys advanced MFA, and the awesome user experience also played a large part in our decision making. Beyond Identity shares our passion and vision for advanced technology that moves the needle for businesses, and a brighter and more secure digital future.
