On January 26, VinCSS LLC (a member of Vingroup) introduced VinCSS FIDO2 Cloud as a passwordless powerful authentication cloud service following the announcement of a series of FIDO2-certified products and services with powerful authentication in compliance with international standards. This is the first powerful authentication cloud service in Viet Nam that helps customers integrate and apply powerful passwordless authentication into their digital ecosystem quickly and easily at the most reasonable cost.
Passwordless authentication is an inevitable trend supported and promoted by all major technology firms in the world under the leadership of the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance. This offers powerful passwordless authentication in businesses and organisations, platforms and services that are compatible with international technology standards and deployed in a variety of forms at a reasonable cost.
VinCSS FIDO2 Cloud service is an authentication-as-a-service platform that simultaneously supports FIDO2 standards and system-based authentication standards (OAuth2, SAML2 and OpenID Connect), single sign-on user experience service in addition to Federated Identity management capabilities across the business digital ecosystem with much higher security than previously.
For businesses with a large number of internal users and applications and providing products and services to the outside (such as banks, e-commerce exchange and super apps), it takes a lot of time and is difficult to deploy and integrate a strong authentication service. VinCSS FIDO2 Cloud service will be provided to a group of customers in the form of a private cloud service or inside an on-premise software, significantly shortening the deployment time, simplifying administration and reducing costs.
For small and medium businesses, start-ups or freelance groups, where it is very difficult for programmers to access the service, a public cloud service will be provided at a very low cost to benefit from powerful passwordless authentication technology.
Do Ngoc Duy Trac, General Director of VinCSS LLC (Vingroup) said: “VinCSS FIDO2 Cloud service is the last piece of the VinCSS FIDO2 Ecosystem. We are proud to present to the world this service as a completely 'Make In Vietnam' technology platform that is developed in compliance with international standards and can fully solve the application of powerful passwordless authentication for our customers. In 2021, we will co-ordinate with our partners and distributors to introduce this technology to domestic and foreign customers.”
VinCSS and Yubico, the world-leading provider of passwordless authentication security keys, are currently two firms in the world with authentication products recommended by Microsoft and chosen as Microsoft 2020 Identity Partners in Passwordless Authentication.
Regarding VinCSS active approach to the booming authentication market, Biometrics Research Group evaluated that: “Microsoft’s recent acknowledgement following VinCSS FIDO2 certification earlier this year presents another boost for Viet Nam’s international tech presence and prestige. Being chosen by tech giant Microsoft signals global confidence in VinCSS’s ability to satisfy the most difficult clients and markets.”
Previously, Vingroup announced VinCSS FIDO2 Ecosystem including different key types (hard key/soft key), authentication servers/services, and different types of cloud services (public/private/on-premise), programming and utility libraries, consulting, integration and support services and FIDO2 technology integrated products (phones, smart cars, and internet of things). VinCSS FIDO2 has achieved four international FIDO2 certificates and has one product recommended by Microsoft for use on its Azure AD platform.
