Ensurity Technologies joins the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association

HYDERABD,
INDIA - Media OutReach -
17 October 2019 - Ensurity Technologies, Hyderabad, India-based
cybersecurity company, is pleased to announce that it has joined the Microsoft
Intelligent Security Association, a group of technology providers who have
integrated their solutions with Microsoft products to provide customers better
protection, detection, and response. Ensurity has been working with Microsoft
over the last couple of years to integrate its ThinC brand of FIDO/FIDO2
certified biometric USB authenticators for passwordless access with Microsoft
Azure Active Directory -- which are now available.  

With the public
preview release of the FIDO2 security keys support in Azure Active Directory, all
Azure Active Directory users can sign in password-free using a FIDO2 security
key, the Microsoft Authenticator app, or Windows Hello. Additionally, admin
users can use a new Authentication methods blade in the Azure Active Directory
admin portal that allows admins to assign passwordless credentials using FIDO2
security keys and passwordless sign-in with Authenticator to users and groups.

ThinC-AUTH is one of the security keys that works with
Microsoft account and Azure Active Directory to access Microsoft cloud services,
including Microsoft 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and Microsoft Azure with one
touch biometric authentication. User biometrics are securely stored within the
device, while FIDO2 standard protocol is used to further authenticate the
device to the server apps. ThinC-AUTH can be used for one-touch access to
unlock digital resources both on cloud and on-prem.

"I am delighted
that Ensurity is now part of MISA," said Amit Mathur, COO
of Ensurity Technologies, "Joining MISA gives Ensurity the
opportunity to strengthen its integrations with a wide range of
Microsoft solutions and address the diverse security needs of customers
globally."

 

Alex Simons, Corporate VP of Program Management at Microsoft,
Microsoft Corp. said, "Passwordless
login represents a shift in how customers will securely log in to their Windows
10 devices and authenticate to Microsoft Azure Active Directory-based
applications and services."
