ID Control's USB Token is a portable end-user authentication token that can replace user name and password for workstation, website, VPN, file, email, network, file and/or disk access security. ID Control USB Token plugs into any standard USB port and can even run without any software.
Since authentication products come in various form factors, the user selection process is based on ease of use and flexibility, especially when in remote locations. Smart cards and biometric solutions require special readers that are not readily available anywhere, anytime. The USB Form has become more attractive over time since today’s PC’s have USB ports installed at the front or back-end of the computer, thus reducing the hassle of the connection process. Concluding chief advantage USB Tokens offer over smart-card-based and biometric authentication systems based on physical characteristics is the lack of need for a card reader and the next unique selling point of USB Tokens is their low cost and ease of use. You plug in your key, go to the secured website, network, email, file, computer or application, and enter your PIN or password, giving the same user experience as with a username and password. This requires no training of the staff and creates higher security awareness at the same time!
