Why You Need AES (Advance Encryption Standard)

In today’s mobile world, wireless technology is everywhere. We use it to get online on the go, connect mobile accessories to our PCs, listen to music from our phone—and the list goes on. Because wireless technology is so common, we often assume it’s safe. Many of us use it to enter passwords, send personal data, and share confidential work information. The reality is that every point in a wireless communication system is a potential vulnerability, and without the proper security measures in place, your private information could be at risk.

At Microsoft, we have created a line of wireless keyboards that help protect your communications using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). AES encrypts your keystrokes before transmitting them to your PC or other device.

This FAQ can help you understand what AES is, why you need it, and the additional measures Microsoft has taken to keep your sensitive information safe.
