ASUS Unleashes Secure Laptops & Tablet

ASUSTeK Computer (ASUS) has today officially launched the R1 tablet PC, V1 and F2 laptop series which offer a smart balance of mobility and performance with comprehensive security features that protect with both software as well as hardware solutions, providing a secure and convenient computing experience for business professionals on the go.

ASUS protected computing starts with fingerprint authentication that grants strict access only to the designated owner. With one swipe, the 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, you 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.

The R1F (317x232x35mm, 1.98kg) offers a wide aspect visual enjoyment while remaining compact for high mobility. The 180-degrees convertible LCD screen allows easy presentation and data sharing during meetings or at gatherings. Increase productivity and efficiency with handwritten input capability.
