TRUSONA INTEGRATES INTO MINDSPACE’S FATHOM LEARNING PLATFORM TO PROVIDE SECURE TRAINING WITHOUT INSECURE CREDENTIALS
Users Can Now Log Into Mindspace’s Fathom Learning Platform without Usernames and Passwords, Eliminating Major Attack Vectors
June 24, 2019 - Scottsdale, AZ --- Trusona, the pioneer and leader in passwordless authentication, and Mindspace, The Creative Learning Agency, today announce the successful integration of Trusona’s solution into the Mindspace Fathom learning platform. Fathom already powers digital learning programs for some of the world’s most recognizable organizations. This integration will make modern learning and training more secure by eliminating the need for usernames and passwords.
Fathom is an innovative, SaaS-based learning and training platform that renders the legacy learning management system (LMS) obsolete. Fathom makes it easy for L&D leaders to solve complex training problems and engage modern learners through microlearning and gamification. Through the intuitive management interface, Fathom administrators can manage xAPI and legacy SCORM content, as well as other digital files like PDFs and videos, to create unique learning paths. With its rich API interface, Fathom also makes it easy to connect to existing systems.
“Innovation in corporate training technology has been disappointing for decades,” says Chad Bellin, Director of Products and Strategy for Mindspace. “The strength of Fathom is our ability to adapt the platform into diverse organizations and connect it to other systems. Integrating with Trusona gives our customers even stronger security and identity options when deploying their programs.”
Trusona pioneered passwordless authentication for enterprise and customer-facing systems, removing the decades-old reliance on usernames and passwords. Stolen or weak credentials are the riskiest attack vector, with over 80% of all breaches being attributed to it. By eliminating usernames and passwords from the authentication process, Trusona empowers organizations to reduce the risk attached with social engineering, phishing attacks, credential stuffing, keylogging and more.
“Trusona is committed to providing Mindspace’s Fathom Learning Platform with the highest levels of authentication security,” said Simon Berman, Chief Product Officer of Trusona. “By alleviating the high risk and heavy burden of static credentials, this integration creates a safer authentication experience while reducing the costs organizations incur with password reset calls. Together, digital learning is now simpler and more secure.”
Trusona is the pioneer and leader in passwordless two-factor authentication. Stolen or weak passwords are responsible for over 80% of breaches, and Trusona’s mission is to thwart cybercrime by eliminating them from the user experience. Over 200 organizations, including some of the world’s largest financial services and health care companies, rely on Trusona’s solutions. Trusona was founded in 2015 by cybersecurity expert Ori Eisen, who has spent the last two decades building technology to fight online crime.
