There are now 250 FIDO Certified products on the market, FIDO has announced. The new milestone reflects more than 200 percent growth over the past year.

250 Products Are Now FIDO CertifiedThe marker was passed with the announcement of a new batch of products from major companies including Bank of America and Aware, Inc. The number of FIDO Certified products passed the 200-mark only in June, suggesting that the program is picking up momentum.

Accordingly, in a statement announcing the latest milestone, FIDO Alliance Technical Director Adam Powers asserts that the demand from organizations seeking FIDO Certification “has expanded tremendously”, which tracks with Yubico’s recent observation that FIDO’s U2F standard is catching on among companies that aren’t even FIDO members or stakeholders. That’s why FIDO has now extended its certification program to offer On-Demand Testing for companies that can’t attend its interoperability events.

The growth is good news for the authentication industry, since as FIDO’s standards become more widely accepted they will be better able to foster innovation. And it’s good news for the companies and users relying on FIDO standards to keep their data secure.
