OneLogin Weekly News Round-up: November 15, 2019

November 15th, 2019   |     |  culture and news, security & compliance

This week we at OneLogin celebrated a headline that proved the power of our solution in the enterprise. “Tesco secures distributed workforce with OneLogin MFA solution” by Jen Philips in Intelligent CIO hit the news and showcased why Tesco chose OneLogin as their solution provider. Proof points in this powerful case study included quotes like:

“[Tesco] turned to OneLogin for a solution, won over by the ease of use and partnership approach the vendor was able to offer.

But the thing that really made [OneLogin] come through was user experience and that’s from two different angles.

“It was very important to us that if we were going to ask 450,000 people to use this thing – many of whom are not what we would describe as digital natives – we wanted it to be an easy experience for them and we wanted it to be intuitive.”

We love our customers, and with case studies like this, it’s no wonder why Customer-Focused is one of our most important values at OneLogin.

Now without further ado, here’s your Weekly News Roundup. See you next week!

Enterprises are otherwise defenceless against employees reusing passwords from personal applications across their corporate applications. When employees’ personal applications are breached, cybercriminals often use these compromised credentials against corporate accounts. Shield removes the friction of password management and security by making the low effort, high impact functionality available through the browser trusted by the vast majority of internet users: Google Chrome.

No Need To Introduce Yourself: Creating A Low-Friction Security Experience
Imagine how friends would feel if you asked them to prove who they were every time you saw them or when they called you or sent a simple text. Even though their relationships can span decades, many businesses treat customers like veritable strangers and ask for identification at every encounter. Instead of recognition, many businesses offer friction — especially in regard to how they manage their customers’ identities. Read more in Forbes.

The Password Reuse Problem Is a Ticking Time Bomb
Despite Bill Gates predicting the demise of passwords back in 2004, they are still very much in use. Passwords, like email, seem future proof; but they are also the source of many cybersecurity problems.
