Dr. Rae Hayward, Certification Director, FIDO Alliance
From consumer brands to vendors to enterprises, FIDO has been embraced across the globe in 2019, and this is more evident than ever with the growth in our certification programs. Today organizations are requiring certification before deploying FIDO Authentication. The increase in certified FIDO products illustrates its value to the industry.
With that, we’re excited to announce our newest certifications today, which puts us over 688 certified products. Certifications across all specifications were strong this quarter, as tech providers look to provide solutions for those with cross-platform and mobile-first strategies.
It’s notable that we now have 107 authenticator certifications at L1 and L2 levels – big growth since this program was launched last year. This program addresses an increasingly critical market requirement for a more transparent view into the security of FIDO Certified authenticators. Certification gives enterprises and online services the ability to make better informed risk management decisions when registering credentials from FIDO-enabled devices. Today, we offer certifications at Levels 1, 2, 3 and 3+ and plan to introduce more levels in the future.
