Intercede has launched a solution for Enterprise Managed FIDO Authentication, at Authenticate 2023 in California.

“We’re pleased to partner with Intercede on its new solution to make the log-on process more secure and streamlined, authentication. With the cyber threat landscape continuing to evolve rapidly, solutions that benefit from the use of FIDO credentials are more critical than ever,” said Derek Hanson, VP of Solutions Architecture and Alliances, Yubico. 

Intercede’s expertise providing solutions to federal and state organisations, as well as large enterprises across a wide range of sectors, partnered with Yubico’s YubiKey technology, offer an attainable and critical solution for further adoption of FIDO authentication. 

Allen Storey, Chief Product Officer, Intercede, stated, “Until now, this level of authentication was the preserve of the largest enterprises and public administrations who can afford to invest in complex PKI-based solutions. This new solution brings the benefits of secure and simple FIDO authentication to the Enterprise, regardless as to whether the organisation is using on-premise, desktop, cloud or different versions of Windows.”

Both Intercede and Yubico were sponsors of Authenticate 2023, which focussed on the FIDO standards-based approach. The event took place from October 16 – 18, in California.
