Validity collaborates with Microsoft on fingerprint sensors for Windows 8.1


Microsoft is demonstrating Validity fingerprint sensors in products running Windows 8.1 this week at Microsoft TechEd Europe 2013 and Build 2013.

According to the company, Windows 8.1, which will be available later this year, natively supports fingerprint based biometrics and provides an end-to-end user experience for enrollment and authentication.

“Fingerprint biometrics are integral to the 8.1 user experience,” Dustin Ingalls, Partner Group Program Manager for Windows Security & Identity at Microsoft said. “Validity’s Natural ID products provide the performance and design flexibility required by our notebook, tablet, handset, and desktop all-in-one customers, and our joint collaboration assures a seamless integration for products that work perfectly right out of the box.”

Reported previously, Validity recently launched a new Mobile natural ID platform, which it says enables customized sensors in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colores based on its own patented architecture.

“Validity is engaged with every major PC company in the world and fully supports Microsoft’s biometric authentication initiatives with a complete system solution,” Michael Maia, vice president of sales and marketing at Validity said. “With over 40 million units shipped into Microsoft Windows platforms, we are pleased to be partnering closely with Microsoft to ensure that our customers continue to receive products with the highest levels of security and usability with our next-generation sensors.”
