Hardened security that doesn’t hinder productivity
Not only is it impossible for employees to forget the unique ridges of their fingerprints or distinguishable facial peaks, but biometric-based factors are also harder for hackers to impersonate. Bluetooth phone proximity or new devices themselves can also confirm an identity based on logical location when Intel® Active Management Technology (Intel® AMT) is activated with the Intel® Authenticate Solution.
With new devices, authentication can now verify the fingerprints and facial features that make every employee unique, and the physical devices that have become an extension of them. Using these types of passive, personalized factors keeps the authentication process easy for users, allowing them to log in quickly and having little to no effect on their productivity.
“Combining one interactive, active factor with one or more of the passive factors makes it super convenient for the user,” said Rasheed. “It’s actually a lot more convenient than using a password.”
