New ASUS notebooks with biometric fingerprint sensors
AuthenTec announced that its AES1610 fingerprint sensors are standard in more than a dozen new 2007 Windows Vista-model ASUS notebooks. Bundled with the Trusted Platform Module, the exclusive ASPM allows ASUS notebooks to run applications securely and to make transactions and communications more trustworthy. ASPM improves system security and productivity by consolidating user passwords and network accounts within a single data unit called User Identity. Users can choose to setup multi-factor authentication requirements for different security levels while benefiting from the Single Sign On (SSO) one-time login convenience without compromising security integrity.
AuthenTec’s fingerprint authentication is a key component of end-to-end security for ASPM by delivering highly accurate fingerprint reading – a scan that reads from the live layer of the skin and is thus less affected by common skin surface conditions. AuthenTec’s fingerprint sensors are integrated into more than 150 PC products today.
