"Traditional authentication methods like passwords are vulnerable to data breaches as well as being difficult to remember and manage. But although tokens and physical smart cards provide better protection they're expensive to implement and maintain.

It works by assigning virtual smart cards to users' devices from a central management server, using the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chip, built into most modern business PCs, as the security foundation for each virtual card."
