Valmido, a French startup offering a multi-app device to authenticate mobile and web services, has launched its first biometric access card, ProFIDO Bio.

The smart card is a FIDO2 hardware authenticator and is now equipped with a biometric fingerprint sensor. It enables secure logical access, with typical use cases including secure, passwordless and hassle-free Windows login and website authentication.

“Thanks to a partnership with Fingerprints, Valmido enables getting rid of passwords with the highest security level and yet superior user experience. With our multi-purpose device based on biometrics and 21st century connectivity, citizens and corporations stay in control of their digital credentials. Phishing-resistant authentication based on FIDO passwordless solution, is making password- and PIN-related problems history,” says Marc Muller, CTO of Valmido.

Michel Roig, the President of Payment and Access at Fingerprints, added: “Security should not be a burden for employees, nor present additional worries for employers. Moving to passwordless authentication to control access provides additional, robust protection that a modern-day business now requires, especially those with hybrid workforces. Collaborating with Valmido to provide smart biometric capabilities means we’re able to help leaders future-proof their organisations with hassle-free and highly secure solutions.”
