Keyless named in Gartner’s 2023 Digital Identity Hype Cycle

2 August 2023

We’re excited to announce we have been mentioned for the third year in a row in Gartner’s Digital Identity Hype Cycle as a biometric authentication sample vendor, which according to Gartner analysts, are now entering the “Slope of Enlightenment" phase, meaning the benefits of how these technologies are becoming more widely understood.

The Hype Cycle methodology gives decision makers a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing insights into how to manage its deployment within the context of their specific business goals.

Drivers for Adoption

Growing interest in device-native biometrics, control over biometric modalities, and the demand for passwordless authentication have accelerated the adoption of biometric solutions. Additionally, identity verification and account recovery scenarios have contributed to the technology's widespread appeal.

Using biometrics provides advantages over other credential-based approaches, potentially freeing the person from having to remember a password or carry a token, thus optimizing user experience (UX) and providing greater accountability, – Gartner

Business Impact 

As a biometric authentication vendor offering privacy-enhancing multi-factor authentication, our passwordless solutions offer numerous benefits, including improved user experience, heightened trust, and support for built-in multi-factor authentication.

Addressing concerns related to privacy is crucial for wider acceptance of biometrics. By adopting innovative solutions, organizations can build trust with their users and remain compliant with evolving data protection regulations, Andrea Carmignani, Keyless co-founder and CEO

Keyless offers numerous benefits compared to device-native biometrics, which are now widely used for authentication. These benefits include true multi-factor authentication, strong identity assurance and improved interoperability across devices and operating systems. As a third party vendor, our novel use of privacy-enhancing cryptography also enhances trust and compliance, enabling organizations to integrate biometrics without risk.

As biometrics continue to shape the future of digital identity, we remain committed to empowering organizations to enhance security, privacy and user experience with robust and seamless authentication,  Carmignani
