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 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, 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.
Primed for productivity
Despite its aggressively streamlined design, the ThinkPad X280 packs even more punch than previous models. From cutting-edge processors to fast PCIe SSD storage, from RapidCharge to its innovative security options, the X280 gives you the resources to drive your business forward.
Down with dongles
Connecting on the road - or even in one of your own conference rooms - can be a hassle. That's why the X280 is packed with a robust selection of connectors - including Thunderbolt, USB Type-C, HDMI, and more.
Prepare to be thunderstruck
The ThinkPad X280 includes Intel Thunderbolt 3 - the technology that brings lightning-fast Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device, and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power.
