Re: Password (User) Insecurity

I'm more interested in knowing why companies haven't deployed something already - at least for remote access. Is is cost? user push back? or is the threat not front and center?

I am interested in what the community is doing to protect user passwords,
and if there are any technologies that are currently deployable, that will
eliminate or reduce the need for passwords (biometrics, etc.)

Thanks,
