HID Global added FIDO2 authentication to its Crescendo smart cards, enabling them to support the FIDO Alliance industry initiative focused on standards-based “password-less” sign-in. HID Global partnered with Microsoft on this effort. The company also expanded its Crescendo family with the Crescendo key series that brings the same FIDO2 authentication capabilities and other features of its advanced smart cards to workstations, laptops, tablets and ultra-books without requiring additional reader and driver software. The Crescendo C2300 Series smart cards and Crescendo Key Series use a common HID authentication platform that supports all major industry standards and regulatory guidelines. They create a consistent, all-in-one access and authentication experience for users, and a simplified administrator experience for deploying high-assurance authentication so they can eliminate weak passwords.
