Solid Security Management for Protected Computing
ASUS protected computing starts with fingerprint authentication that grants strict access only to the designated owner. With one swipe, t he electronic imaging mechanism reads the fingerprint pattern from the live layer of skin , bypassing any common skin surface conditions that can impair the accuracy of the reading.
With ASUS Security Protect Manager, users can choose to setup multi-factor authentication requirements for data access of different security level. Both passwords and fingerprints can be used as the method of verification. Passwords are encrypted and stored in the hardware-based Trusted Platform Module (TPM) ensuring end-to-end security and avoid attacks by hackers looking to capture passwords and encryption keys for sensitive data.
