Synaptics, AMD Collaborate on Enterprise-Grade Biometric PC Security for Next-Generation Microsoft Operating System

• Hardened Encryption, Unmatched Security for Business and Consumer PCs on AMD Platforms

Synaptics Incorporated, the leading developer of human interface solutions, together with AMD, recently announced a joint initiative centered on delivering a new industry benchmark in highly-secure biometric fingerprint authentication for enterprise/commercial and consumer notebook PCs based on next-generation AMD Ryzen Mobile platform and Microsoft’s next-generation operating system. The collaboration brings a new level of security for AMD-based laptops by leveraging Synaptics’ unique FS7600 Match-in-Sensor fingerprint sensor technology with powerful AMD Ryzen Mobile processors, and Microsoft’s forthcoming biometric security OS including Windows Hello.

Synaptics’ Match-in-Sensor  technology is the industry’s first fully hardware encapsulated fingerprint sensor and matching solution. Hardened authentication is literally “off the grid”, isolating fingerprint image enrollment, pattern storage and biometric matching within the fingerprint sensor to provide best-in-class protection against on-device threats. Match-in-Sensor fingerprint authentication is a System-on-Chip (SoC) architecture in which a single device performs both input/output functions with an in-sensor microprocessor executing firmware. By performing security sensitive functions completely inside the SoC, Match-in-Sensor adds a new level of security due to total isolation from the host operating system.

Saeid Moshkelani, Corporate  Vice  President &  General  Manager, Client Compute Business Unit, AMD said, “At AMD, security is a top priority. As part of our ongoing commitment, hardened biometric security is a critical requirement for our next-generation Ryzen Mobile platforms. We are excited to be working with Synaptics and Microsoft in a collaborative effort to develop and deliver one of the most secure Ryzen Mobile platform to date.”

Godfrey Cheng, Corporate  Vice President, PC Division and Corporate Marketing, Synaptics said,  “With the growing adoption of fingerprint sensors on notebook PCs across both business and consumer platforms, there has never been a more critical time to broadly implement very strong biometric authentication to protect enterprises and enable secure consumer mobile payments against deviant black hat hackers. Synaptics’ FS7600 Match-in-Sensor SoC is the industry’s most secure fingerprint solution to protect against these threats.”

Synaptics’ fingerprint sensors are available with the Sentry Point  security suite of powerful tools to protect user identity. This includes Quantum Matcher  for adaptive fingerprint template matching and authentication; Secure Link  which combines support for TLS protocol with ECC authentication and AES encryption; and Pure Print  anti-spoof technology to help distinguish between fake or spoofed fingerprints and real fingers. Pure Print  drivers are regularly updated to combat new spoofing techniques and materials.
