Lenovo ThinkPad X280
Our agility enables yours
The thin and ultralight ThinkPad X280 optimizes your journey to success. All-day battery life with RapidCharge ensures uninterrupted inspiration on the go. And whether you’re in the office, at the corner cafe, or at 30,000 feet, you can rest assured your ideas stay yours with enhanced security features.
An IT administrator’s dream
Quickly log in with ease — just the touch of your finger or the view of your face if you opt for the IR camera and use Windows Hello. What’s more, the fingerprint reader thwarts biometric hacking with anti-spoofing technology — that means the fingerprint image is saved inside the chip, and as such, it’s not sent out for login authentication when you sign in.
Your data is protected too, with the discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM), which encrypts your information.
And if that’s not enough to make IT administrators love the new X280, then the FIDO authentication capabilities that ThinkPad is enabled with is sure to have them drooling. Fast Identity Online—or FIDO—enables hardened authentication that wraps your access info in three layers of security. FIDO authentication pertains to your online credentials, when you sign in to websites like Facebook or Google, or make payments via PayPal, Visa, etc. This global solution creates better security for online services, reduces costs for organizations, and is simpler and safer for users.
