“Data breaches are costing C-suite executives their jobs. Protection of important company assets secured by networks has to go beyond traditional methodologies,” says Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO, ImageWare Systems. In the modern world, there is a requisite for stronger biometric authentication as compromised credentials are enabling hackers to breach 2FA. Addressing the challenges, ImageWare Systems (OTCQB: IWSY) aims to mitigate unauthorized authentications by embedding state-of-the-art biometric technologies in their solutions.
ImageWare Systems embarked on its journey in 1997 to implementing security perimeters for numerous law enforcement and government agencies; amassing extensive experience and knowledge over time. The company has ventured into the private sector, including consumer, commercial, and enterprise, amalgamating its exposure to cyber security. From retail to law enforcement and financial services to identity management, ImageWare covers a wide section of industry verticals with cutting-edge turnkey and tailored security solutions.
The company’s flagship product, GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite, a scalable, enterprise-ready application–provides end-to-end biometric authentication tightly integrated with Microsoft Active Directory to work seamlessly with the entire Microsoft ecosystem. The application is Microsoft Windows Server certified and is compatible with all Microsoft supported versions of Windows.This crucial multi-factor biometric authentication validates identity while accessing sensitive information and transactions.
ImageWareSystems has carefully separated biographic and biometric data in the cloud; thus, in case of a data breach, would be worthless to would-be hackers
Offered as ‘pay as you go’ and ‘scale as you use’, the product fits into existing infrastructure across devices, reducing additional overhead costs. GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite secures enterprise resources and supports multi-modal biometric authentication systems, including face, voice, and fingerprint recognition. “Speedy authentication is critical in commercial markets. Our patented purpose-built database authenticates biometrics in real-time,”exclaims Miller.
Learning from the previous data breaches in the country, ImageWare Systems has carefully separated biographic and biometric data in the cloud; thus, in case of a data breach, compromised biometric information would be worthless to would-be hackers, without the relevant biographic data. Anonymous matching, together with multi-modal biometrics are part of ImageWare’s extensive patents in the biometrics field.
GoVerifyID has been deployed across multiple sectors and one of the major financial services firm avails the benefits to confirm secure transactions. In another instance, Extenua–a secure storage solutions provider– has integrated GoVerifyID into their solutions making it impossible to read data without biometric authentication.
ImageWare Systems has built an extensive partner ecosystem to deliver this solution. Strategic partners include Fujitsu, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Lockheed Martin, SAP, CA Technologies, and Amazon Web Services. The company has integrated with CA technologies’ Single Sign-On product adding multi-modal biometric user authentication. With the success of GoVerifyID products on Windows platforms, Jim Miller is looking forward to a promising future of expanding the product to covering other major operating systems, including Linux and Mac OS platforms. “The company is constantly looking at best-of-breed biometric technologies and provides native products offering turnkey solutions". “We continue to make the world’s best biometric authentication product, which is our primary job every single day,” concludes Miller.
