AuthenTrend to showcase password-less security at CES 2020

Microsoft's Azure AD already uses this technology.

Passwords have always been the cornerstone of protection that people use to safeguard their online accounts. However, they have also been the target of many hackers to break into accounts of people, stealing personal information including banking data.

Now, a team of Taiwanese startups led by AuthenTrend have created a new solution to help individuals protect their online accounts more efficiently.

AuthenTrend has developed fingerprint-enabled security key solutions, replacing traditional multi-character passwords with biometrics.

The technology is now adopted by Microsoft's Azure AD identity management solution. Microsoft even has a dedicated online page that promotes going password-less. Microsoft said passwords are a thing of the past, are costly for IT to support and are hard to remember.

Citing data from Verizon, AuthenTrend said 81% of company data breaches are due to weak or stolen passwords.

"Our vision and goal is to replace passwords with biometrics… assword-less authentication has been widely adopted in Microsoft's Azure AD identity management solution. Google also announced the launch of its hardware security keys in 2017 to protect its 85000 employees from hacks and phishing. We can thus foresee a future without passwords,” AuthenTrend Vice President Zake Huang said in a statement.

AuthenTrend added that it will offer fingerprint cards and USB keys in compact sizes with the fastest recognition speed and extremely low power consumption. This way, users will be able to register their fingerprints directly on the cards or the USB keys without the need to download an app. The cards will be manufactured by Egis Technology.

CES attendees can learn more about AuthenTrend's new password management solution during the annual trade show.

The CES 2020 is coming up in less than a week from now, so make sure to catch the latest updates on the biggest consumer electronics trade show at I4U News’ dedicated CES 2020 News Hub.
