FIDO Solutions for Government Services

PROTECT GOVERNMENT SERVICES WITH SIMPLER,
STRONGER AUTHENTICATION BASED ON OPEN AND SCALABLE STANDARDS.

Government services providers are evolving service delivery to online and mobile services, but
are constantly trading off fast and easy access with robust authentication security.

Online security based on FIDO Specifications turns that around and makes online security a simpler and better user experience
while providing stronger security and reducing costs for government services.
