Where is passwordless MFA for Windows?
Passwordless is a noisy buzzword in the modern world of authentication, with various approaches finding their place mostly in web-based products (think passkeys). Unfortunately, Windows domain environments haven't had native support for true MFA, if you don't count Azure-based MFA and Windows Hello for Business, so most third-party vendors offer MFA support for Windows in conjunction with a password-based approach.

There are only very few solutions on the market that provide real passwordless MFA for Microsoft Active Directory on premises, and SystoLOCK is the only one that is fully autonomous, self-hosted, does not rely on any cloud services, and supports all common usage scenarios, from system logon, through impersonation and network share access, to RDP and VPN access.
