NEOWAVE awarded Cybersecurity Made in Europe

USB-C security key with smart card component

Credential generation, management and storage inside the smart card

Easy to use and to deploy

(no software installation on the client workstation)

Anti-Phishing protection

(in order to replace vulnerable solutions based on one-time passwords or OTP)

The FIDO2 and FIDO U2F standards rely on architectures based on asymmetric cryptography and electronical certificates. The FIDO2 standard allows you to authenticate yourself without a password in complete security. Winkeo-C FIDO2 easily replaces your Windows 10 / 11 password. You have just to insert the USB key, enter your PIN and you are connected (natively integrated into Microsoft Azure Active Directory / Azure AD and Windows 10 / 11). The FIDO U2F standard enables double authentication to online accounts: social networks, webmails, e-commerce sites, online banks…

Moreover, the security key contains a smart card component certified Common Criteria EAL5+. The implementation of the FIDO standard as well as the integration of a highly secure smart card component thus guarantee a very high level of security.

The Winkeo-C security key was proven and recognized as reliable by ANSSI (the French National Cybersecurity Agency ) and received the Security visa in 2022 (Certificate ANSSI-CSPN-06/2022). In addition, NEOWAVE is a Microsoft partner for its passwordless authentication solutions (FIDO2).
