OctatcO expands into the global market as a global leading company in the field of biometric recognition by FIDO.
PASCON 2021, the largest information security and privacy conference in the second half of the year, was held safely in the situation of With Corona on the 11th.
PASCON 2021 was hosted by the Media Daily Security, which specializes in information security, and sponsored by the Personal Information Protection Committee, the Korea Internet & Security Agency, and the Korea Information Protection Industry Association. A large number of people in charge of information security and personal information protection in various sectors of public, financial and corporate sectors attended the event.
At the meeting, Lee Jae-hyung, CEO of OctatcO, drew attention by giving a lecture on the current, future, and application cases of security certification from telecommuting to customer growth marketing.
On May 12, 2021, the U.S. Biden administration ordered all federal, federal and state governments to strengthen national cybersecurity through executive orders. Among them, what is noteworthy in the field of security certification is the mandatory MFA multiple authentication, the establishment of a security system based on the Zero Trust model, and standardized risk response reporting.
It also plans to actively cooperate with technologies in the private sector to cope with the overall cyber security threat of the country. The BOB LORD, a former CSO of the U.S. Democratic Party’s National Security Council, said it plans to further expand the FIDO certification technology, which is currently drawing attention as a next-generation certification, under the Biden administration to strengthen security certification.
At this PASCON 2021, OctatcO presented actual application examples of how security certification is currently being used from telecommuting to marketing, what future developments and how new authentication methods can be introduced at real sites.
The plan is to share trend information on security certification around the world, introduce user data related to security certification recently investigated, and share the latest security certification-related trends with participants.
It also plans to provide information to security managers attending PASCON 2021 on cases where next-generation FIDO-based authentication has been applied and how it is actually applied, providing informative information to those who are making efforts to enhance security at the actual site.
◇Global leading companies in OctatcO and FIDO biometric recognition
OctatcO is a global leading company in the field of FIDO biometric recognition that obtained both FIDO2 and FIDO U2F certification by commercializing FIDO fingerprint security keys that applied quantum random numbers for the first time in the world in 2021.
OctatcO’s FIDO-based biometric security key and integrated authentication platform EzAuth allow organizations and users to choose a variety of authentication methods, such as smartphone fingerprints, PIN, OTP, PC-mounted fingerprints, USB-type fingerprint security keys, and easily link organizations’s MS OFFICE 365, Azure Cloud, ERP, and groupware to dramatically enhance organizational authentication speed and reset.
OctatcO (CEO Yoo Mi-young and Lee Jae-sun) specializes in biometric authentication solutions that provide next-generation biometric security keys that replace passwords. It supports Microsoft’s next-generation certification Windows Hello and FIDO Security Keys to provide the safest and most convenient fingerprint authentication security keys in Azure cloud environments and Microsoft 365 working environments.
It is a biometric security key provider that can implement unlimited authentication with a single authentication device by supporting various OS environments such as MS Windows, Android, Mac, and other platforms such as Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari.
In the global B2B/B2G market, Azure Cloud, Microsoft 365 and FIDO2 authentication can be most safely and conveniently certified and neutralizes hacking attacks such as phishing attacks. The world’s first Windows Hello & FIDO2 certified product provides the safest and most convenient way to authenticate PC logins, groupware logins, and Internet web service logins without passwords.
With the belief that ending the era of weak and uncomfortable passwords and strong user-centered authentication with next-generation biometrics can make digital life safer and more convenient, OctatcO has focused on authentication technology for the past five years.
It is a ‘biometric card key’ that combines quantum security technology and biometric authentication technology to support NFC services as well as company work and Internet security. OctatcO, which released the world’s first fingerprint recognition security key “EzQuant” that is applied with quantum random number generation technology, has released a product that combines quantum random number generation technology with card-type fingerprint security keys based on FIDO, which allows online authentication through Easy Quant. Due to release of Easy Quant, areas that are applied to quantum security technologies have greatly expanded. It can be linked to all certifications needed for work such as PC login and in-house groupware that were previously performed with biometric authentication.
In addition, the company has recently launched an integrated authentication solution, iGius, to further expand its market. It features fingerprint security keys, mobile fingerprint and face recognition as well as FIDO-based various forms of authentication, including OTP and Izius apps.
Since Izies offers a variety of authentication means, users simply choose their preferred authentication means. It thus greatly helps to support a password-free business environment and protect digital assets from cyber attacks. Izius is easily integrated with the company’s in-house applications and has the scalability to meet the company’s diverse and robust security needs.
In the meantime, we have focused on various security companies at home and abroad, and from this year, we are focusing on expanding the market for strong biometric authentication targeting the markets of government agencies, public institutions and the United States and Singapore.
