NEOWAVE launches contact smart card reader, Linkeo-Y

NEOWAVE, an authentication, and secure transactions specialist has launched Linkeo-Y, a new contact smart card reader that can be used in any office or remote environment requiring a high level of security.

The Linkeo-Y comes in two versions, the LinkeoA-Y suitable for USB-A ports, and LinkeoC-Y suitable for USB-C ports. The Linkeo is easy to implement and comes as a ‘plug and play’ solution with no software or drivers required to install. For added security, the Linkeo-Y is compatible with FIDO2 authentication-enabled cards, such as NEOWAVE’s Badgeo FIDO2.

Jason Kent, Director at Open Seas said, “the number of cyber-attacks are on the rise. Microsoft recently reported that bad actors are making almost 1,000 attempts every single second to break account passwords. A way to minimise the threat of cyber-attacks is to use strong authentication solutions with a physical element. This is where authentication solutions, such as the Linkeo come in.”

Thanks to its PC/SC CCID compatibility, the Linkeo-Y reader enables the use of smart card applications in complete security from home or via a smartphone (e.g.: online administrative procedures, health, transport). In the professional environment, it is ideal for organisations requiring a high level of security (e.g.: strong authentication, electronic signatures, management of logical access).

Bruno Bernard, President at NEOWAVE added, “it is estimated that there are already between 30-50 billion smart cards in circulation now. We expect this number to keep growing over the years but at the same time, we must keep innovating and producing solutions that are modern, easy-to-use, and, most importantly, secure. The LinkeoA-Y reader has already proven itself to our customers. Specifically, STM in Canada has successfully implemented the product and now its employees and customers are benefiting from a modern and secure solution.”
