Windows Hello To Support Touch ID, Nymi Band, YubiKey and More
You can now use an iPhone to log into a Windows 10 PC, Microsoft says

We are excited to let you know that the Early Access Program (EAP) for the Nymi Band’s commercial release is now live. We have discontinued the Nymi Band Developer Kit, and the Nymi Band EAP includes our new hardware, supports new use cases and applications, and includes a brand new, fully featured SDK for Windows and Mac.

New Hardware

Based on over two years of field testing our developer kits across a variety of use cases, the Nymi Band hardware includes the following enhancements:

Biometrics are FinTech’s BFF. But Karl Martin, Nymi founder and CTO, says that the only truly reliable biometric is the heartbeat, since, among other things, it says that the consumer is alive. In this issue of the Digital Identity Tracker, Martin makes his case about how authentication is only a heartbeat away. That and the latest rankings of more than 65 players in the digital identity space awai
"People are having to jump through more and more hoops to create a secure authentication," says Karl Martin, founder of Nymi, a Toronto-based startup that created a wristband that can identify its wearer based on their electrocardiogram, or the electrical activity of their heart.

Most enterprises know that moving to multi-factor authentication (MFA) is a great way to increase their organization's security posture. Moving to MFA, however, presents challenges, including the difficulty of replacing passwords and the additional friction that may be experienced by the user. Nymi proposes a wireless, multi-factor solution in the upcoming Nymi Band: a Secure, Persistent Authenticator.

As we finish off the first half of the 2016 calendar year, we’re excited to share with you some updates, including new device unlock capabilities of the Nymi Band, and a recap of the Cloud Identity Summit (CIS).

Windows Hello and The Nymi band

Forget typing long and complicated passwords, Microsoft wants to make it easier and quicker for you to log in to your PC. And soon, you'll be able to do it from your wrist.

We’re excited to announce that Nymi will be exhibiting at this year’s Cloud Identity Summit (CIS), to be held in New Orleans from June 6th to June 9th. CIS is one of the leading events in the identity industry, and brings together organizations and experts to share ideas and insights on security trends and solutions.
