Aircuve adds fingerprint biometric capabilities for 2FA plays
South Korean network security firm Aircuve has updated its two-factor authentication (2FA) with support for fingerprint biometrics.
The update addresses work-from-home (WFH) applications and is targeted at larger companies that are still adapting to security gaps that are more prevalent since the onset of Covid.
V-Front v7 was unveiled in November in the Philippines.
The update includes an improved management user interface (UI). And it supports passwordless two-factor authentication options including login tokens, fingerprint biometrics, YubiKeys, QR, push notifications and SMS/email/mobile one-time passwords.
Aircuve is getting into bank transactions, VPNs and customer web portals, said company Executive Vice President Gs Ahn. It also is expanding into the Americas, Japan, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Europe, Ahn said.
Company executives expect the firm to be a “major player in the authentication industry in 2023.”
The company’s offering also includes a WiFi access authentication platform called AirFront, designed to facilitate security management for wireless applications.
Another South Korean customer authentication player, Winning.I, was recently selected the government’s expansion accelerator, Born2Global.
