Get better security at less than half the cost
Passwords are weak. Tokens are expensive. Don’t compromise on security or price.
Wave Virtual Smart Card does anything your physical smart cards and tokens do, but it starts with hardware you already have: the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a hardware security chip built into the motherboard of most business-class PCs. You may not even know you have it, but once you do, the TPM can be used in a myriad of ways. Wave turns it into a smart card, embedded directly into your laptop.
What can it be used for?
What do you use your smart card for today? With the exception of keying open the door at work, Wave Virtual Smart Card can perform any of the services or applications you rely on your smart card for today. Secure VPN, WiFi, remote desktop, cloud applications – it can all be done with a virtual smart card.
One helpdesk call you'll never get: "I lost my virtual smart card again..."
There are so many ways to lose a token – couch cushions, street drains, curious toddlers. In fact, up to 30% of all tokens are eventually lost. It’s much harder to lose a laptop, and you notice a lot faster when you do.
The user experience with a virtual smart card is simple: he or she logs in with a PIN (authentication factor number one). The TPM (authentication factor number two) then transparently identifies the device to the network and connects the user to all the approved services. It’s one less thing for users to carry around.
What will you do with >50% TCO savings?*
Tokens and smart cards require an additional hardware purchase, plus the time and money to ship to remote users. Use something that’s already in the users’ hands (the TPM), and your acquisition and deployment costs are lower.
Then consider the management savings in not having to replace lost and stolen tokens. That means fewer helpdesk calls, less interruption of user productivity, and fewer acquisition and shipping costs.
When we say “secure”…
…we mean it. Our solution starts with a proven hardware root-of-trust. Multi-factor authentication is an established best-practice for strong authentication: the TPM-based virtual smart card is one factor (something you have) and the user PIN is a second factor (something you know).
