TrustKey, an affiliate of the South Korean fabless semiconductor company eWBM, signed a partnership with a US enterprise identity protection company Semperis, and a data security solutions company Strongkey. TrustKey uses eWBM's MS500 applied with the world's best fingerprint recognition algorithm and security solutions.
In addition to the existing G310 and G320, the company introduced T110 and T120. The G series is fingerprint security key and the T series is applied with touch recognition technique. Both the G and the T series are highly praised to have made online in and out without passwords more convenient than ever and also to be safe to use.
"It is encouraging that the public institutions are adopting our security solutions and if things go smoothly we might be able to provide our advanced passwordless security solutions to individuals free of charge" say an official of eWBM. "Government organizations have delicate information of the people. And in and out of that information online with passwords have been very risky as hackers are constantly trying to get into it by breaking the passwords. The government's move to our innovative TrustKey online security solutions prove that it is better and safer than the existing system" explains Stephen Oh, CEO of eWBM.
Hacking issues aside, changing the passwords on a regular basis have been a pain in the neck for many individuals as they must normally be 8 to 12 characters long including special characters and numbers. TrustKey's FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) cryptographic login credentials, on the other hand, are unique across every websites, biometrics or other secrets like passwords never leave the user's key and are never stored on a server.
"Using a FIDO2 security key providers protection against phishing, account takeover, man-in-the-middle attacks, as well as other online hacking attacks. Thus users can securely and conveniently login to the FIDO enabled websites" explains an official of eWBM.
"The fingerprint technique-driven G series, for example, encodes the fingerprint in the security storage so the data is never released outside during the registeration or after the recognition" adds CEO Oh.
Semperis is a partner of Microsoft and TrustKey's TrustKey Login solution leveled up login security and convenience for the companies that use the Microsoft's Active Directory. In other words, companies in South Korea that use the Active Directory also can be benefited from innovative TrustKey Login solution.
Joining hands with Strongkey, on the other hand, is pushing forward TrustKey Login's 'plug-and-play' solution where users receive a package, unbox it and install it to use just in a day.
