Transmit Security, the Identity Experience™ company, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022.
“With or without additional factors, passwords can be a significant source of friction and frustration for users and administrators. They degrade user experience (UX) for both employees and customers, and create a significant volume of service desk or contact center calls. Thus, Gartner clients are increasingly seeking passwordless authentication methods.”
This year’s list honors businesses that are making the biggest impact on their industries and culture as a whole—ultimately thriving in today’s ever-changing world. These companies are creating the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century.
“This recognition further affirms our mission to provide simple and secure passwordless authentication for everyone,” said Mickey Boodaei, CEO and Co-Founder of Transmit Security. “Our flagship product BindID makes cyberthreats that target passwords irrelevant, closing a very common vector of fraud and account takeovers while eliminating friction for consumers. Being acknowledged as a top-ten innovator in security underscores how imminent and necessary passwordless authentication has become.”
As an industry leader in passwordless authentication, Transmit Security specializes in solving the complex problems associated with digital customer identities, like login friction and vulnerabilities to phishing, credential stuffing, and other forms of attack.
“Passwords remain ubiquitous in user authentication but are vulnerable to many attacks. Thus, they do little to bring account takeover (ATO) and other digital-identity risks within an organization’s risk tolerance. Compromised passwords account for more than 60% of breaches due to hacking,” reported Gartner®1. “With or without additional factors, passwords can be a significant source of friction and frustration for users and administrators. They degrade user experience (UX) for both employees and customers, and create a significant volume of service desk or contact center calls.
