End users are increasingly frustrated with the number of passwords they’re asked to use, as well as the rules in place around their complexity. With the average person having as many as 100 to manage, users seek workarounds to get by – choosing passwords that are easier to remember or reusing the same password across multiple services.

Passwordless 360° provides a complete set of tools that let organizations use passwordless authentication across a wide range of applications - from secure access to personal and work devices, to legacy and modern web resources. This helps keep the costs of making the move to passwordless down by being able to use one system – as well as increasing the likelihood that employees, customers and suppliers will use it. By removing the need to use traditional passwords it also eliminates the associated security risks through theft and phishing. Passwordless 360° can also meet the individual risk management requirements an organization might have, adhering to NIST requirements no matter where the passkeys are stored.

Sitting alongside the existing Thales OneWelcome Identity Platform that serves as the foundation for passwordless policies, the Passwordless 360° concept includes:

  • Support for passkeys in the OneWelcome Identity Platform
  • Passwordless Windows Logon, a true passwordless user experience that replaces passwords with ways for users to identify themselves, offering convenience and security benefits.
  • SafeNet FIDO Key Manager, a way of helping users manage the several FIDO keys they might be using themselves, reducing administration costs for organizations.
  • FIDO Authenticator Lifecycle Management, developed in partnership with identity management software company Versasec. This tool lets organizations manage FIDO tokens and lets larger enterprises make the move to the modern FIDO standard at the scale needed.

The announcement comes as Thales has been named an Overall, Product, Innovation and Market Leader in KuppingerCole’s latest Leadership Compass on Passwordless Authentication for Consumers, with the platform praised for offering a versatile set of identity applications encompassing a wide range of authentication methods to meet organizations’ needs.

Alejandro Leal, Research Analyst at KuppingerColecommented:Overall, Thales offers a comprehensive solution that enables organizations to improve their identity management practices, adapt to evolving technologies, and effectively secure their systems and data. Organizations in highly regulated industries and security-conscious organizations in both the public and private sectors that require strong authentication options should consider the OneWelcome Identity Platform.”

Takeda Signs Option Agreement with Ascentage Pharma to Enter into Exclusive Global License for Olverembatinib, a Third-Generation BCR-ABL Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor (TKI)14.6.2024 14:00:00 CEST | Press release

Takeda (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced the signing of an option agreement with Ascentage Pharma to enter into an exclusive license agreement for olverembatinib, an oral, potentially best-in-class, third-generation BCR-ABL tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI), which is currently in development for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and other hematological cancers. If exercised, the option would allow Takeda to license global rights to develop and commercialize olverembatinib in all territories outside of mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and Russia. Despite the impact TKIs have had in the treatment of patients with CML, there remains significant unmet need for patients whose disease is resistant or refractory to these therapies or who develop hard-to-treat mutations following these treatments. “Takeda has a long history of driving important treatment advances for patients, particularly those with hematological cancers facing treatment gaps,” said Teresa Bitetti, president of the Globa
