SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Trusona, the pioneering leader in passwordless multi-factor authentication solutions, today announced that it is the recipient of the prestigious Editor's Choice award from Cyber Defense Magazine for its innovative technology in passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA). This award was presented to Trusona by the magazine's 8th annual Cyber Defense InfoSec Awards program, where the industry's most innovative and valuable cyber defense companies from around the globe were recognized.
In a world where credential compromise is the most common attack vector, Trusona's passwordless MFA solutions offer a convenient, enterprise-wide alternative to usernames and passwords — effectively eliminating attack vectors including phishing, credential stuffing, keylogging, password reuse, SIM swapping and more. Trusona's patented anti-replay technology ensures each authentication session is unique and can never be hijacked or replicated.
"We are honored to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine," said Ori Eisen, Founder and CEO, Trusona. "This award is a testament to the bold journey our customers and us have jointly embarked on to rid the world of usernames and passwords that are the root cause of most breaches. Our company's official mission statement is 'to curb the funding of evil'. Money lost to breaches is being used for the most nefarious goals, and we have the opportunity to put a serious dent in that funding."
"Trusona embodies three major features the judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow's threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach," said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
The Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Award is yet another proof point that enterprises and consumers are starting to understand the importance of changing their approach to protecting themselves against cybercrime. Trusona is uniquely positioned to lead the transformation to the next step of authentication. In addition to this accolade, the company was recently named to CNBC's 2019 Upstart 100 list, recognizing up-and-coming companies breaking industry barriers.
