Biometric authentication has become the de facto standard for high performance security, enabling users to secure their laptops with fingerprint sensing. Second factor authentication, or U2F, delivers an even higher level of security with an open authentication standard that enables internet users to securely access any number of online services, with one single device, instantly and with no drivers, or client software needed.
“With Windows Hello, businesses now have enterprise-grade security that is also easy to use,” said Pavan Li, Sr. Product Manager of Windows Consumer Marketing. “Third party solutions such as Kensington’s VeriMark Fingerprint Key are ideal for companies that have not deployed laptops with built-in biometric capabilities, allowing them to enjoy the advantages of Windows Hello across the organization.”
“The risks associated with losing valuable as well as confidential data increases the importance of protecting individual laptops from theft, particularly for those in specific industries such as healthcare, financial and legal services where confidentiality is critical,” said Ada Yang, Senior Global Product Manager, Kensington.
