FIDO2 frees enterprises from password management and risk

FIDO2 offers passwordless authentication without boundaries—across credential types, devices and platforms. This rapidly growing industry standard is supported by Microsoft, Google, Apple, and all leading web services and browsers.

FIDO2 supports login to devices, websites and applications using contactless credentials, biometrics, mobile devices and security keys. It eliminates the need for centrally stored passwords that can be hacked, as well as the risk of password theft, phishing and other user-directed attacks.

rf IDEAS enables FIDO2 on today’s security infrastructure

Through the rf IDEAS® Universal SDK, WAVE ID® readers work with nearly every proximity and contactless smart card in use worldwide. These readers also optionally support the card chip interface device protocol (CCID), providing plug-and-play functionality with most computing platforms and operating systems.

Any logical access application that supports WAVE ID readers can add the ability to use NFC FIDO2 security keys and cards with no disruption—while maintaining full backward-compatibility. Using FIDO2, enterprises can easily eliminate passwords to harden their single-factor security infrastructure. With multi-factor authentication becoming the new security standard, FIDO2 is ideal for supporting seamless access to all enterprise devices and data.

WAVE ID® readers with FIDO2: a more productive and secure future, today

“rf IDEAS has been a passwordless champion since its inception, providing convenient tap-and-go authentication without compromising security,” said Gourgen Oganessyan, Product Marketing Manager at rf IDEAS and the company’s representative at the FIDO Alliance. “With the addition of FIDO2 NFC functionality to our WAVE ID readers, users of rf IDEAS technology can benefit from the industry’s strongest, most secure passwordless authentication standard.”

Anterra Capital: Pandemic and Food Price Inflation Fuel Investor Interest to Accelerate Transformation of the Food and Ag Sector18.5.2022 07:00:00 CEST | Press release

A crushing pandemic and, more recently, the Ukraine war have convinced investors more than ever that the world needs to radically change how it produces, distributes and consumes food, says Adam Anders, managing partner of the international food and agriculture specialist venture capital firm Anterra Capital (“Anterra”).

Post our final closing, the devastating impact of the Ukraine War on the global food supply has increased the awareness among investors even further. This, plus our focus on deploying proven biotech and digital solutions to shake up the lagging Food and Ag-sector, go a long way in explaining the higher than expected interest in our second fund.” Anterra is proud to announce the closing of
