The growing popularity of mobile devices has given many IT managers concerns about security as they develop internal policies to accommodate 'bring your own device' (BYOD) users while protecting enterprise data. Smartphones and other mobile devices operate under different technology platforms, and are no less of a malware target than a desktop PC is.
Wave Systems has developed a password-free security solution that works with Windows 8-based tablets that allows users access and companies to protect their data and control access.
Users will no longer have to remember multiple passwords with Wave security installed. It follows Trusted Platform Module (TPM) specifications, which creates a complex hash key based on the device's hardware and software configuration. TPM also uses a special chip that has an RSA key burned into it.
