Ensurity Technologies adds FIDO2 biometric authentication to encrypted storage device
 

Ensurity Technologies has upgraded its encrypted storage solution with FIDO2 authentication to provide users with convenient and secure passwordless device access, the company announced.

“We are happy to Integrate the strong FIDO2 and FIDO U2F authentication with our encrypted storage solutions in line with customer requirements and will continue to do so with our market offerings on security thereby creating a strong value proposition,” said Amit Mathur, COO, Ensurity Technologies in a press release.

The initial ThinC-AUTH release had already been upgraded to support Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) sign-ins.

The new ThinC AUTH+ is the company’s second FIDO2 product. It delivers passwordless access to Azure AD accounts and Windows 10 systems and supports up to 256GB encrypted storage, which users can leverage for customized secure partitions for storing and sharing the data. Users have access to a software tool to manage fingerprints, user groups, partitions and PIN to partitions.

The newly upgraded version also uses one-touch biometric authentication for users to sign-in to Microsoft accounts and Azure Active Directory accounts on Windows 10, including Microsoft 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Azure. Biometric details are stored on the device and authentication is secured by FIDO2 protocols.

After they are registered, users can insert the device in a USB port and use their stored fingerprints for authentication. ThinC AUTH+ enables one-touch access to unlock digital resources on cloud and on-premises. The encrypted partition can be secured with a PIN.

Users signing in to Azure Active Directory can use a FIDO2 security key or the Microsoft Authenticator app.

“Passwords are no longer an effective security mechanism. It’s clear we need to provide our customers with authentication options that are secure and easy to use. This is where passwordless authentication comes in,” said Sue Bohn, Partner Director of Program Management, Microsoft Identity Division, Microsoft Corp, in a prepared statement. “We are pleased to see companies like Ensurity support our passwordless journey by integrating their solutions with Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Account (Outlook, Hotmail), and Windows 10.”
