Toshiba Client Solutions Europe today announces a host of upgrades to three devices within its Satellite Pro and Tecra 15” series of laptops, including fingeprint sensors on some models.

The refreshed products launching today are the Satellite Pro R50-EC, Satellite Pro A50-EC and Tecra A50-EC.

Featuring multiple layers of security inside and out, such as HDD password and Advanced Encryption (TPM 2.0), users of the Satellite Pro A50-EC can now enjoy the option of SecurePad with Synaptics Natural ID fingerprint sensor, a new touchpad with a built-in fingerprint sensor.

In addition to including the optional SecurePad, the Tecra A50-EC also features an IR camera which enables optional facial authentication via Intel® Authenticate and Windows Hello face sign-in. The presence of these biometric features provides an added-layer of protection to the already highly-secure E-Generation series.

“These cutting-edge updates to devices in our business range demonstrate our goal to provide the fastest, most powerful, secure and functional laptops for professionals on the move,” said Damian Jaume, Managing Director, Toshiba Client Solutions Europe. “We understand that working patterns are evolving and we want to ensure that our technology moves in tandem with those shifts. These updates deliver the right mix of convenience, connectivity and robust security for the contemporary business user”.
