SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/KOREA IT TIMES -- eWBM Co., Ltd., a fabless System-on-Chip (SoC) company providing one of the world's first biometrics-based FIDO2 L2 hardware authenticators, announces membership into the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association to help defend organizations from sophisticated and complex security threats. eWBM also announces two new additions to eWBM Goldengate Series: G310 (USB-A type) and G320 (USB-C type).
Goldengate Series security keys are USB hardware tokens made for FIDO authentication using eWBM MS500, a powerful microprocessor with extensive security features, and a fingerprint sensor and a world-leading fingerprint recognition algorithm. Certified with the new FIDO2 standard, G310 and G320 provide the benefit of fast login and strong protection against phishing, account takeover as well as many other online attacks. Simply plug G310 or G320 into a USB port according to the login procedure then touch the fingerprint sensor on the key to complete login and access the account. Moreover, G310 and G320 are compatible with all major web browsers with WebAuthn capability and works seamlessly with Microsoft Azure Active Directory. Azure Active Directory is part of the Microsoft cloud services, including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Dynamics 365.
Passwords are the root cause of over 80% of data breaches and an open door for hackers to harm user accounts, but with Azure AD services and Goldengate keys, users realize the benefit of secure, simple and seamless passwordless login with Single Sign-On (SSO) to Azure AD-connected apps and services. Stephen Oh, CEO of eWBM, said, "We are glad to become a part of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association as we can provide our FIDO2 L2 security keys for the passwordless environment. It is meaningful to us that we have developed the keys ground up using our own secure micro-controller."
Alex Simons, Corporate Vice President of Program Management, Microsoft Identity Division, Microsoft Corp. said, "Microsoft has been on a mission to eliminate passwords and help people protect their corporate identities. We welcome companies like eWBM that support a goal to increase online security and protect identity online through the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association."
