Ensurity Announces New FIDO2 Biometric Security Key

Hyderabad-based Ensurity Technologies has announced its latest FIDO2 compliant offering, the ThinC AUTH+ biometric security key.

Ensurity’s previously released ThinC-AUTH key was already optimized to work with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) sign-ins. The new ThinC AUTH+ adds FIDO2 biometric authentication and encrypted storage to provide users with better security and storage up to 256GB.

“We are happy to Integrate the strong FIDO2 & 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.

Providing passwordless access to Azure AD accounts and devices running on Windows 10, the new ThinC AUTH+ is also designed on the USB 3.0 interface and allows users to create customized secure partitions for the storing and sharing of their sensitive data.

“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.

“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,” she added.

Ensurity also provides users with software to manage their biometric sign-in data (fingerprints), as well as for the management of user groups for the key.

The ThinC AUTH+ features the ability to lock the device to a specific PC or Network, providing further protection for lost or stolen keys and the data contained within them; and it works with Microsoft and Azure AD accounts on Windows 10 — including Microsoft 365 — giving users the security of biometric authentication.
