If your company relies on passwords to prevent unauthorized computer access, or low-tech memory cards (e.g., swipe cards) for facility access, you have security on par with the average 1980s car. Smart credentials embedded in plastic smartcards, USB tokens or mobile devices offer companies advanced and versatile user authentication features.
