FIDO Biometric Smart Card
Discover a new authentication experience
with a biometric and NFC card
Access security threats like stolen credentials, phishing attacks, and human error are top of mind for organizations moving to the cloud. Many are grappling with low user adoption of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), which is often cited as cumbersome. According to Gartner, poor user experience during authentication is one of the main pitfalls to avoid when deploying MFA. Thales is committed to helping organizations rise to this challenge with the help of innovative, highly secure and user-friendly solutions like the SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Bio Smart Card.
The Verizon 2023 Data Breach Investigations Report indicates that attackers most often gain access to data by leveraging compromised or stolen credentials (49%) and phishing attacks (16%).
Combining biometrics and NFC, the innovative SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Bio Smart Card allows end users to authenticate from multiple types of devices securely and easily, with just a fingerprint instead of a password.
FIDO2 protects against Phishing and Man-In-The-Middle attacks.
End users authenticate faster and easier by tapping the card on the device and putting their fingerprint on the card.
Reach MFA deployment goals by reducing friction for end users.
The biometrics of the user never leaves the smart card.
Contact and contactless (NFC) modes permit usage on multiple types of devices.
It only takes a few minutes for your end users to enroll the FIDO Biometric smart card, register, and authenticate to a new web service – as you’ll see in this demo with Gregory Vigroux, Thales IAM PKI/FIDO Product line Manager
If the following statements apply to your business, the SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Bio Smart Card is likely to be a good fit.

SafeNet IDPrime FIDO Bio Smart Card is not suitable for:
FIDO authentication has gained traction as a modern form of MFA because of its considerable benefits in easing the log in experience for users. It also overcomes the inherent vulnerabilities of text-based passwords.
Organizations expanding their digital transformation are moving applications and data to the cloud to enable accessibility from anywhere and decrease operating costs. As users log in to an increasing number of cloud-based applications, weak passwords are emerging as the primary cause of identity theft and security breaches.
In this Webcast, Matthew Isbell @ Microsoft and Gregory Vigroux @ Thales discussed about new regulations for strong and phishing-resistant authentication and how to meet them by combining Azure AD CBA and authentication strengths capabilities with Thales PKI/FIDO authenticators.
