Wave Virtual Smart Card 2.0 provides strong two-factor authentication, offering better security at less than half the cost. It can be used like a traditional smart card or USB security token – but because it uses hardware already embedded in the endpoint, the user doesn’t have to carry anything extra for secure authentication. Typical use cases are for secure VPN, web applications and other certificate-based applications, like 802.1x, remote desktop, or user login to a Windows tablet or laptop.
Wave Virtual Smart Card uses the TPM to provide solutions to frequently encountered authentication problems. Using pre-deployed hardware that is built to an industry security standard allows Wave Virtual Smart Card to introduce strong, two-factor authentication with a low total cost of ownership and ease of use not practical with traditional two-factor products like smart cards and USB tokens.
