Utilising biometrics and multi-factor authentication for enhanced security

ThinC AUTH FIDO2 and AUTH BioPro (PIV) are hardware-bound passkeys, based on FIDO Alliance and W3C standards, and incorporates Fingerprints’ modern sensor, software, and algorithms for access control. At the time of this annoucement, 80% of computer hacks and cyber-crimes can be traced back to compromised passwords. Passkey technology offering multi-factor authentication (MFA) with biometrics is a key tool in the fight against phishing, man-in-the-middle and stolen credential attacks.

The biometric security key takes the form of a USB or USB-C token and is now available to consumers worldwide.

Officials from Fingerprint Cards said that hardware-bound passkeys with biometrics create stronger trust than alternative software or hardware in use today, ensuring robust security and a seamless user experience. Removing passwords and PINs as the default for online authentication will dramatically close primary threat vector.

Officials from Ensurity stated that they are focused on developing innovative solutions to tricky security issues. Passwords pose a significant threat to personal and organisational security. By combining Fingerprints’ proven biometric technology with their hardware token, they are addressing the threat that passwords pose, ensuring that authentication powers the digital economy, as opposed to hindering it.
