With its conference and exhibition, this important industry event marks a significant milestone for Swissbit as it introduces to the community its cutting-edge iShield Key product series, thereby emphasizing the importance of robust hardware-based authentication in today’s digital age.

Swissbit’s showcase will focus especially on its iShield Key Pro, a cornerstone of the company’s iShield Key series, which was designed to fortify online accounts with unparalleled hardware authentication capabilities.Source: SwissbitSource: Swissbit The iShield Key Pro is much more than just another FIDO security stick because it supports a wide array of security standards, including FIDO2, HOTP, TOTP and PIV. And its capability to double as a physical access control tool makes it unique in the market, especially with the impending adoption of FIPS 140-3 standards, thus ensuring the highest level of cryptographic security.

New iShield Key Pro with USB-C interface

Just in time for the Identiverse event, Swissbit is also excited to unveil the latest addition to its hardware token portfolio: the new iShield Key Pro with USB-C interface. It maintains the versatility and robust security features of its predecessors while offering the convenience of state-of-the-art USB-C connectivity. The iShield Key FIDO2, another variant in the lineup, is limited to the FIDO2/WebAuthn and U2F predecessor standard, making it a cost-efficient option to securely log into websites and services. The iShield Key FIDO2 will also be available with USB-C and USB-A interfaces.

As Kai Imgenberg, director of sales, embedded IoT solutions Americas at Swissbit, stated, “Swissbit is at the forefront of a digital transformation where securing digital identities and transactions has never been more critical. Our presence at the Identiverse event signifies Swissbit’s commitment to FIDO2-based authentication solutions in North America. By empowering our customers to seamlessly implement zero-trust security principles and phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication, we are not just participating in the industry’s evolution – we are leading it. We are confident that this event will be a catalyst for Swissbit in setting new benchmarks and delivering pioneering solutions to our customers. Swissbit will lead the Fido market by being the first to introduce FIPS 140-3 and as well as the only FIDO2 security dongle for logical and physical access control to the market.”

At the forefront in FIDO2 authentication for North America

Swissbit’s desire to become the premier provider of FIDO2 solutions in North America is well in line with the growing demand for flexible yet secure authentication methods that can keep pace with rapid advances in technology and cyber threats. By introducing innovative products like the iShield Key Pro, Swissbit is making significant advances that enable businesses to adopt stronger, phishing-resistant authentication mechanisms, thereby enhancing the overall security of organizations across the continent.

Swissbit invites attendees at the Identiverse event to visit Booth #2432 on the exhibition floor to explore the future of hardware authentication and see for themselves how Swissbit can help them to implement robust security frameworks within their respective organizations.
