- March 4, 2019
-- FEITIAN Technologies, a world leader in biometric authentication, advanced combined technology smartcards, and payment related systems, announced today that they have extended their FIDO and FIDO2 certifications to cover 18 different security products. The approval, which is issued by the FIDO Alliance, is designed to drive and enable passwordless multi-factor authentication across multiple platforms, operating systems, and applications. FEITIAN Technologies will be at RSA Conference 2019 (Booth #2127) in San Francisco March 4–8 demonstrating their extensive line of security products and technologies.
"Traditional username-password scheme protection, and two-factor authentication, are no longer enough for today's enterprise security needs. As a result, biometric authentication is expected to grow significantly in the coming years as the fingerprint replaces the PIN," said FEITIAN Technologies Vice President and General Manager of International Business Tibi Zhang. "We have worked closely with the FIDO Alliance by strictly adhering to their industry-established technology standards for strong, phishing-resistant authentication on the web that promises better security and a better user experience with our broader choice of Authenticators for everyone."
The FEITIAN certified family of security products are purpose-built with specifications for FIDO U2F and FIDO2 for truly strong authentication. The FEITIAN BioPass passwordless authentication for use with USB-A (K27) and USB-C (K26) have already received their FIDO2 certifications. The recently certified K33 gives users the freedom to obtain passwordless authentication through BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and NFC (Near Field Communications)
. The USB-A compatible Combo ePass (K12) security key delivers the added benefit of having both FIDO and FIDO2 certifications. Finally, the FEITIAN Universal Server received FIDO and FIDO2 certification as well.
These added security capabilities were developed in conjunction with Microsoft, for their Windows Hello and Azure Active Directory, and Google Advanced Protection products. The FEITIAN security keys offers many advantages over passwords including lower IT management costs, better productivity, improved security, and unprecedented privacy for both employees and employers at enterprise businesses, educational campuses, healthcare facilities, and government applications.
