DigiCert Advances Passwordless Authentication with Support for Windows Hello for Business

DigiCert, Inc., the world’s leading provider of TLS/SSL, IoT and other PKI solutions, today unveiled a key advancement in passwordless authentication with industry-first automated workflows and certificate issuance for Windows Hello for Business (WHfB). 

Passwordless authentication is a growing trend as companies seek to improve security at the point of access, while simplifying the user sign-in experience. This need is becoming more pronounced as companies adopt zero-trust network access security models, which require authentication for each access point. With passwordless authentication, end users no longer need to create or remember passwords and instead employ more secure methods for verifying identity, such as passwordless logins, PIN identity credentials and biometric authentication. 

Brian Trzupek, Senior Vice President of Product at DigiCert, said “As our customers increasingly adopt zero-trust network access security models that require verification of each access request, certificate-based access security with automated workflows is becoming more critical for protecting against attacks,” “DigiCert plays a leading role in enterprise PKI management, supporting more than 30 certificate types in its solutions. As the first publicly trusted CA to support WHfB integration with its managed enterprise PKI platform, DigiCert provides automated workflows and centralized certificate lifecycle management for identity and access verification.”  

DigiCert PKI platform’s automated support for the WHfB certificate trust model on Azure AD hybrid deployments simplifies identity and access management across large enterprises with hundreds of thousands of workers and connection points.
