Leading innovator of secure SD and microSD cards GOTrust has partnered with the FIDO alliance to offer the FIDO microSD.
This is the first piece of FIDO certified hardware. It is compatible with Windows PCs and Android smartphones and tablets. The card will allow any compatible device to work on any website requiring FIDO authentication.
Below is the official press release from GOTrust and FIDO:
GOTrust, a FIDO Alliance member, announces FIDO microSD, among the first certified FIDO Ready™ products in the marketplace. FIDO microSD will work with 99 percent of existing laptops and personal computers, and the one billion Android devices in the marketplace today. FIDO microSD supports FIDO login and includes 8GB memory capacity for user storage.
“For the hundreds of millions of users and systems integrators who want to adapt existing devices to become FIDO Ready™, there is FIDO microSD,” said Darren Lee, CEO of GO-Trust. “GO-Trust makes it simple, fast and affordable for developers and providers of personal computers, mobile devices and phones already in the marketplace to be enabled with universal strong authentication that can replace password authentication with easier to use, more secure and private authentication.”
