Axiad Automated Passwordless Authentication Platform Delivers Phishing-Resistant MFA for Microsoft Entra ID Users

Santa Clara, CA, Mar. 23, 2022 — Axiad today announced it has joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated their solutions to better defend against a world of increasing threats.

Axiad Cloud automates the provisioning of MFA credentials with Microsoft Entra ID, allowing organizations to use Windows Hello for Business and additional authentication methods such as OTP, PKI and FIDO to address every authentication need without requiring any on-premises dependencies. The solution is a match for organizations that are looking to deploy Entra ID along with MFA credentials on YubiKeys, TPM, Smart Cards or mobile devices. The integration manages and extends the scope of Windows Hello for Business credentials (Cert-Trust and Key-Trust), to support all workforce authentication use cases from a single platform.

“At Axiad, our goal is to remove passwords for everyone and everything, while providing the most secure and simple authentication. We’re proud to partner with Microsoft to help Microsoft Entra ID customers modernize their workforce authentication. With this integration and partnership, we bring passwordless, phishing resistant MFA to the entire Microsoft Entra ID community,” said Eric Tocatlian, Chief Revenue Officer, Axiad.

“Microsoft has been on a mission to eliminate passwords and help people protect their corporate identities,” said Alex Simons, Corporate Vice President of Program Management, Microsoft Identity Division. “We are pleased to see companies like Axiad support that goal by integrating their solutions through the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association.”

Axiad Cloud is a dedicated turnkey platform that includes PKI-as-a Service, Authentication services and unified credential management, which fully integrates with Microsoft Entra ID. The integration uses SAML/OAuth for SSO and SCIM for automated provisioning/deprovisioning. This allows organizations to seamlessly manage various authenticators from one location, all tied to their Entra ID account. Similarly, IT administrators benefit from using a single pane of glass to manage authentication across every user, use case and authentication method.
