How should organisations handle password policies? Should they consider ditching passwords for biometrics? Will passwords ever disappear? This report provides an insightful view on identity and access management.

Read this report, "The Problem with P4$$WORDS!," and explore how passwords provide a sense of security that can be highly misleading. Security professionals agree that although authentication by password alone is used the vast majority of the time across the Internet and in enterprises, more robust authentication systems provide better protection.
