"We're really excited to see Microsoft launch this ground-breaking product and happy to see our industry-leading technology featured in it. We're delighted to support such a large and influential industry player, it's a testimonial of our products performance. This launch is a very interesting step for the rapidly moving PC industry", said Niklas Strid, Senior Vice President, Business Line PC and Embedded, at Fingerprint Cards.
