In this series, Microsoft identity team members share their reasons for loving passwordless authentication (and why you should too!). Today, Tarek Dawoud, principal program manager, continues this series.
Since we announced our Public Preview of passwordless credential management, we have met with hundreds of customers to discuss the passwordless promise and how to get there. If there’s one consistent theme we’ve heard from customers over the past two years, it’s been that going passwordless makes sense. That's what I love about passwordless. They absolutely believe in the promise, the technology, and the standards backing it. They see that it’s the right investment to truly rely on enterprise security for user accounts and credentials.
The other theme we’ve also heard is that customers need guidance and help on how to plan their passwordless journey. Since passwords have been around since the inception of computing, this is a new undertaking for most customers and with the passwordless journey being closely tied to the cloud journey, many customers are seeking a blueprint or roadmap.
I am here to share more about the journeys that some of our most successful passwordless customers, including Microsoft ourselves, have taken, and what we have learned from them. The first step on the journey is to understand and start planning for the “Passwordless Funnel” as illustrated in the image below:
So, as you start your passwordless journey… What can you do today? What can you start in a month? And what do you have to start working on this year? This journey map (shown below) is built based on our deployment journey at Microsoft as well as hundreds of passwordless deployments with our customers, we hope you will find it valuable.
