HANOI, VIETNAM – Media OutReach – 8 December 2020
December 4, the VinCSS-FIDO2 product by VinCSS Cyber Security Services LLC (a
member of Vingroup) was included in the list of passwordless authenticators
recommended by Microsoft for use on Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) – one of
its key platforms. Vingroup became the
first Vietnamese enterprise to be included in this list alongside 12 other
leading security companies in the world.
and developed by VinCSS Cyber Security Services LLC (a member of Vingroup),
the VinCSS FIDO2 authenticator was officially recommended for use by Microsoft on Microsoft
Hybrid Azure Active Directory (Azure AD). As Microsoft’s cloud-based
identity and access management service, Azure Active Directory enhances the
security of logging in and accessing internal and external resources. Before
including VinCSS FIDO2 authenticator in this list, the Microsoft team assessed
and tested this product in addition to interviewing and learning about VinCSS’s
business and technology capabilities for nearly six months.
The VinCSS FIDO2 authenticator enables
users to securely log in to Microsoft Azure AD without a password. All users
need to do is to connect the VinCSS FIDO2 authenticator to their computer and
experience a seamless login with high security during the working process. This
also helps minimise the risk of information disclosure due to logging by
password and phishing attacks for account takeover.
As a strong authenticator, VinCSS FIDO2 also
supports passwordless authentication on many other Microsoft platforms such as
Windows 10, Office 365 and Windows Hello.
As of December 2020, only 13 out of hundreds of
authenticators including VinCSS FIDO2 can satisfy the parameters and strict
requirements for login process in Microsoft Azure AD.
