The group chose Token because of its “unhackable” multifactor authentication (MFA) that stops ransomware while enhancing end-user convenience. The Token wearable biometric smart ring easily integrates with all IAM solutions to provide near-instant protection with minimal implementation effort.

“We are beyond stoked that our smart ring has already won three significant awards, the latest from The Channel Company, even though we are just starting production,” said Token CEO, John Gunn. “Organizations of all types are being victimized by ransomware making it the number one concern of CISOs everywhere. Current MFA solutions are simply not effective and we have a fix that provides complete protection.”

“We all know the password is dead and Token’s appearance at NexGen 2022 brought the future of biometric authentication to our fingers,” said Fort Point IT CEO, Travis Woods. “It’s about making advanced authentication easier for the user and the Token ring is a beautiful marriage of biometric authentication applied to security”

The Channel Company’s XChange NexGen Security Workshops provide attendees with ground-breaking technology insights, pioneering business resources and unique opportunities to connect with fellow IT professionals and MSP business leaders through peer-to-peer networking.
