Identiv has released government-grade FIDO2 security keys to provide a remote workforce with secure passwordless access to sensitive data, the company announced.

Made in the U.S., the uTrust FIDO2 NFC Security Keys ensure a strong authentication standard and eliminate traditional passwords, prevent phishing attacks and secure user credentials.

Identiv’s logical access solutions have been rolled out by the U.S. federal government, Department of Defense (DoD), armed forces, as well as banks, hospitals, and commercial users.

“Standards-based FIDO authentication ends the reliance on passwords, and is applicable across our customer base, including small-to-enterprise organizations, financial services, mobile, healthcare, and government agencies,” Manfred Mueller, Identiv COO and GM, said in a prepared statement. “uTrust FIDO2 demonstrates what’s next in authentication technology — and the security keys are made in America, eliminating the man-in-the-middle risk of foreign government origin while also investing back into the U.S. job market. We’re reinforcing our commitment to simpler, stronger authentication standards in the fluid pandemic-era working environment.”

Conforming to the needs of an increasing remote workforce, uTrust FIDO2 secures critical data kept on devices outside the work environment.

The security keys are compatible with multiple devices and support all services such as Gmail, Facebook, Salesforce, LinkedIn. They support both contact (USB A/C) and contactless near field communication (NFC) use cases, provide multi-protocol FIDO U2F, FIDO2, smart card, and OTP support, are compatible with Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, and iOS.
