Kensington’s USB fingerprint reader now available

 

Kensington, the technology division of ACCO Brands, announced the general availability of its VeriMark USB fingerprint reader.

According to a company statement, the Kensington VeriMark Fingerprint Key, which supports both Windows Hello and FIDO universal second factor authentication, integrates the smallest size touch sensor available in a compact design and combines 360-degree readability with anti-spoofing technology and fingerprint activated collaboration capabilities.

“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,” explained Pavan Li, senior product manager of Windows Consumer Marketing.

In a January blog post, Microsoft noted that there are as many as 100 Windows devices and accessories across all platforms starting from laptops, all-in-ones, 2-in-1s, tablets, phones to peripheral devices to use with Windows Hello.
