The iShield Key Pro is a new hardware security key for secure passwordless, phishing-resistant authentication and protection of online accounts. It provides the best possible protection for online accounts and enables secure access to websites, applications, services and corporate networks. In addition to FIDO2, the Security Key also supports the HOTP (Hash-based One Time Password) and PIV (Personal Identity Verification) security standards and can therefore also be used for offline scenarios or the implementation of customer-specific security solutions.
iShield Key Pro: All-in-one security key for enterprises to protect physical access, login to systems and web servicesWith the iShield Key Pro, Swissbit is expanding its range of hardware security keys with more than simply another FIDO stick. Thanks to the addition of further security standards and features, the new security key provides even more flexibility for secure password-free, phishing-resistant authentication and protection of online accounts.
Alongside FIDO2, the stick also supports HOTP (Hash-Based-One-Time-Password) to enable automatic fallback to a compliant authentication method with a seamless user experience. This allows the stick to be used in offline and remote access circumstances where FIDO2 is not available.
In addition, PIV (Personal Identity Verification) technology ensures secure personal credential storage. iShield Key Pro features an NFC interface on top of USB Type-A, and is packaged in a robust, waterproof, industrial-grade plastic shell. With its latest security key, Swissbit specifically addresses enterprise IT applications as well as security extensions of existing web-based services and opens up new application opportunities with its extended range of functions.
