Secret Double Octopus Enables Phishing-Resistant Passwordless MFA for Password-centric Environments

Platform meets federal mandates and stringent cyber insurance criteria for all workforce applications

MENLO PARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Secret Double Octopus (SDO) today announced the release of new phishing-resistant passwordless MFA capabilities for customers with password-centric directory infrastructure. Organizations using SDO’s Octopus Platform can achieve Presidential Executive Order M-22-09’s phishing-resistant MFA mandates and meet stringent cyber insurance criteria with new capabilities available to adopters of the company’s Octopus Authentication Platform.

The release comes as attackers have expanded phishing attacks against enterprises, leveraging man-in-the-middle (MiTM) tooling and push fatigue strategies to bypass traditional MFA. Despite this, enterprises have been slow to respond to this growing threat, given the view that phishing resistance requires PKI-enabled authentication, such as through X.509 certificates or FIDO tokens, and requisite PKI infrastructure dedicated to endpoint clients. This time-consuming and expensive view was partially suggested by the Presidential Executive Order M-22-09 and later amplified by CISA and other organizations.
