What is the difference between a Passkey and Haventec Silent MFA?
While a Passkey provides a security uplift to traditional username and password based authentication, the onus is on the customer to set it up which requires effort and some tech knowledge.
This is a key differentiator for Haventec Silent MFA where customers can be onboarded either silently, or by using a single-step secure onboarding process that works natively on any device.
For organisations, Silent MFA provides higher assurance by using rolling private and public keys that are never stored, as opposed to the static keys used by passkeys and stored on a customer’s device and in the cloud.
Finally, Haventec Silent MFA does not require any changes to an application or investment in infrastructure, while Passkeys require a WebAuthn server and enabling WebAuthn in an application.
