The eWBM spinoff TrustKey Solutions is expanding its portfolio with the launch of the new T120 security key. The T120 is a USB-C device that meets the latest FIDO2 and U2F standards, and arrives approximately two months after the T110, which was the first major product to appear under the TrustKey umbrella after the spinoff was announced.
Like other security keys, the T120 is designed to support passwordless authentication protocols. The device is fully integrated with Microsoft Azure Active Directory, allowing customers to use the security key to log into a connected Windows device without a password. It is also compatible with any WebAuth web browser, and with popular online services like Google, Dropbox, Twitter, GitHub, and 1Password.
Azure AD logins are available even when the device is in airplane mode. Trustkey’s overall support for the platform garnered an invitation to join the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association.
“Microsoft has been on a mission to eliminate passwords and help people protect their corporate identities,” said Microsoft Identity Division Program Experience Partner Director Sue Bohn. “T120 supports our four steps to password freedom with a password replacement offering.”
One T120 can support as many as 150 user accounts and 50 OTP accounts, with the former feature being delivered through the use of secure Resident Keys. The OTP utility, on the other hand, offers a degree of future-proofing, since organizations that currently have a two-factor authentication setup will be able to use the T120 right now and after they transition to a fully passwordless security framework.
The T120 is built with the same platform as TrustKey’s G-Series, which has L2 certification from the FIDO Alliance. The G-Series includes the G310 and the new G320, which debuted in February while TrustKey was still under the eWBM banner. The G320 is one of a handful of biometric security keys, and comes with a built-in fingerprint sensor for authentication.
