About the FEITIAN Release of the AllInPass
The AllinPass K33 security key provides users with a strong, user-friendly, passwordless logon experience. The Bluetooth® Certified BLE module embedded in the AllinPass FIDO2 Security Key ensures seamless communication with most mainstream mobile devices and PCs. The NFC communication is fully compliant with the ISO 14443 standard and will work with all compliant smart card readers. This is in addition to the existing FEITIAN FIDO and FIDO2 certifications that cover 18 different security products. The AllinPass (SKU: K33), which is certified by the FIDO Alliance, is designed to drive and enable passwordless multi-factor authentication across multiple platforms, operating systems, and applications.
“Traditional username-password scheme protection, and two-factor authentication, are no longer enough for today’s enterprise security needs. As a result, biometric authentication is expected to grow significantly in the coming years as the fingerprint replaces the PIN,” said FEITIAN Technologies Vice President and General Manager of International Business Tibi Zhang. “We have worked closely with the FIDO Alliance by strictly adhering to their industry-established technology standards for strong, phishing-resistant authentication on the web that promises better security and a better user experience with our broader choice of Authenticators for everyone.”
The FEITIAN certified family of security products are purpose-built with specifications for FIDO U2F and FIDO2 for truly strong authentication. The FEITIAN BioPass passwordless authentication for use with USB-A (K27) and USB-C (K26) have already received their FIDO2 certifications. The USB-A compatible ePass FIDO (K12) security key delivers the added benefit of having both FIDO U2F and FIDO2 certifications. The FEITIAN Security Keys can also deliver PIV, OTP, and GIDS with options for multiple interfaces, price points, and fingerprint biometrics as needed.
FEITIAN is working with Microsoft to ensure these keys work with Windows and Azure Active Directory and the company is also co-developing Google Advanced Protection products. The FEITIAN security keys offers many advantages over passwords including lower IT management costs, better productivity, improved security, and unprecedented privacy for both employees and employers at enterprise businesses, educational campuses, healthcare facilities, and government applications.
“FEITIAN has long demonstrated its strong commitment to the FIDO Alliance, both in terms of its investments in certified product development and its inputs as a board member company,” said Andrew Shikiar, executive director and chief marketing officer of the FIDO Alliance. “We are pleased to see FEITIAN introducing this FIDO2 certified security key, added to the strong ecosystem of options for enterprises and consumers looking to adopt simpler, stronger FIDO authentication.”
