Tired of entering your login information every time you wake up your PC? Kensington̵
With a small form factor and a 4-foot USB cable, the VeriMark fingerprint sensor should fit on any workstation, even if your PC isn’t at your desk. It supports up to 10 fingerprints, sports Windows Hello certification for Windows software and login, and exceeds the industry standard for false rejection and false acceptance rates for corporate biometric scanners. (More specifically, it has a 2% FRR and 0.001% FAR.)
The VeriMark fingerprint sensor also supports single-factor and multi-factor authentication. Multi-factor authentication allows business users and businesses to actually increase the security of their PCs by requiring a typed password and a fingerprint scan. Of course, multi-factor authentication is less convenient than the scan-and-go approach, and people are more likely to opt for one-factor authentication at home.
But this isn’t Kensington’s first enterprise-class fingerprint reader. The company also sells a VeriMark wireless fingerprint dongle for laptops. The smaller dongle costs half the price of Kensington’s new VeriMark scanner, and it works great with any desktop computer, although you may need a USB hub or extension cable to place it conveniently on your desk.
