Swissbit, a manufacturer of storage, security and embedded internet of things (IoT) solutions, announces its first participation in the prestigious RSA Conference taking place from May 6 to May 9, 2024, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. This marks a significant milestone for Swissbit as it introduces its cutting-edge iShield Key product series to the RSA community, emphasizing the importance of robust hardware authentication in today’s digital age.

Swissbit’s showcase will be centered around the iShield Key Pro, a cornerstone of the iShield Key series, which was designed to fortify online accounts with unparalleled hardware authentication capabilities. The iShield Key Pro distinguishes itself as more than just another FIDO security stick by supporting a wide array of security standards, including FIDO2, HOTP, TOTP and PIV. Its unique capability to double as a physical access control tool sets it apart in the market, especially with the impending adoption of FIPS 140-3 standards, ensuring the highest level of cryptographic security.
