81 percent of data breaches last year involved weak, default or stolen passwords, and phishing attacks have grown 65 percent year-on-year. Protecting online privacy, identity and all types of data is more important than ever – requiring more robust security practices. Lenovo and Intel today announced the first PC-ready built-in authentication measures to support users’ online browsing, working and shopping. Using Intel Online Connect on 7th and 8th Gen Intel Core processors, Lenovo’s latest PCs including the Yoga™ 920, ThinkPad™ X1 Tablet (2nd generation), ThinkPad X1 Carbon (5th generation) and IdeaPad™ 720S integrate FIDO-certified authenticators directly into the core of the PCs, bringing simpler and safer online authentication when logging into popular websites like PayPal, Google, Dropbox and Facebook.
