Axiad delivers organization-wide passwordless orchestration to connect users and machines to data and applications from anywhere, helping organizations optimize their cybersecurity posture while navigating underlying IT complexity. Axiad Cloud, the company’s comprehensive, secure, and efficient SaaS authentication platform, helps organizations systematically authenticate across multiple authentication methods, identity types, use cases, and existing IAM systems. Unlike many authentication approaches that result in silos, Axiad Cloud provides a holistic solution, allowing customers to move to a passwordless future without the friction and risk of fragmented solutions.

Axiad Cloud supports the widest range of credentials in the market, including FIDO, Windows Hello for Business, YubiKeys, smart cards, mobile MFA, TPM and biometrics, and more. It also supports heterogeneous IT environments – e.g., organizations operating Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems or with multiple existing IAM systems in place – allowing organizations to remove gaps and inconsistencies in how they authenticate across complex ecosystems, and to become more programmatic in their overall cybersecurity practices.

Axiad Cloud offers a full suite of modular, passwordless authentication capabilities, including passwordless Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Phishing-Resistant Authentication, Certificate-Based Authentication for IAM, and Passwordless Orchestration.

Axiad’s fully integrated approach to passwordless helps organizations become more phishing resistant, prevent ransomware attacks/account takeovers, and take a critical step forward to implementing Zero Trust. It offers an important balance between protection and usability – empowering end users to easily access what they need/when they need it, without compromising security.

Axiad Cloud is trusted by government agencies and Fortune 500 companies across highly regulated industries such as financial services and healthcare, as well as aerospace & defense, oil & energy, retail, manufacturing and more, with deployments as large as 140,000 users. It is currently listed as the #1 provider of Passwordless Authentication solutions – as determined by customer reviews – on PeerSpot.

How we are different

Holistic: Axiad uniquely allows customers to move from a fragmented to an integrated approach to authentication – breaking down authentication silos created by internal IT complexity and enabling systematic authentication and protection across people (end users and admins), machines, and interactions in a single cloud-based solution.

No-Password Passwordless: Most passwordless solutions actually require a password or other shared secret. These solutions typically hide the secret from the end user to deliver a passwordless experience. But behind the scenes, the shared secret is still there and can still be exploited. In contrast to a passwordless experience, Axiad delivers a “no password” passwordless environment where there are no shared secrets.

Phishing Resistant: With guidance from the White House OMB. NIST, and CISA all pointing toward the importance of being phishing resistant, this capability is critical for any passwordless strategy. Axiad delivers a more secure, phishing-resistant form of passwordless MFA across its portfolio.
