“Armed with GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite, corporations have access to a scalable and affordable solution that works with their existing Microsoft infrastructure and gives them the ultimate peace of mind.” – Jim Miller, Chairman & CEO, ImageWare Systems
Today, ImageWare Systems announced its latest end-to-end biometric authentication solution: GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite. As the product’s name implies, this latest version of ImageWare’s flagship GoVerifyID technology is designed for authentication in the workplace – it’s a multimodal solution that takes less than 15 minutes to set up, and it is backwards compatible with Windows 7,8, and 10. Furthermore, GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite is “the first ever end-to-end biometric platform that seamlessly integrates with an enterprise’s existing Microsoft infrastructure,” according to a statement from the company.
GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite is offered via a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model in which businesses pay-per-identity. This service model allows the cloud-based authentication solution to easily scale to fit an enterprise’s needs. Scalability is also built into the platform on the security side too, the multi-factor and multimodal nature of ImageWare’s technology allows administrators to manage the permissions of an employee on their network so that a given authentication event is protected by as many biometrics as correlate to the associated transaction risk. If Touch ID is enough, then a fingerprint scan is all that’s needed. But if you want to scale up, face and voice are also readily available to be combined for live multi-factor verification.
As has been the proposition of all GoVerifyID products, the biometric solution is algorithm agnostic and future-proof, able to integrate any authentication modality a customer requires, even those that have not yet been invented. Authentication occurs on-server, where biometric templates are stored anonymously so that in the event of a data breach the stolen information is useless. And data breaches are of top-of-mind for enterprises in the current cyber security climate, that’s what necessitates exactly these kinds of solutions.
Jim Miller, ImageWare’s chairman and CEO spoke to this demand for enterprise security in an official statement, saying:
“Last year nearly 80 percent of businesses reported a data breach. As the digital workforce expands, with data extended to external stakeholders and across numerous types of devices and systems, the need for high-assurance, enterprise-wide protection has intensified. The traditional security perimeters have changed and executives are being held accountable for safeguarding data against potentially devastating breaches that can tarnish a brand’s reputation. Armed with GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite, corporations have access to a scalable and affordable solution that works with their existing Microsoft infrastructure and gives them the ultimate peace of mind.”
ImageWare’s GoVerifyID biometric platform has received a number of integrations in the past year. In august CA Technologies integrated the multimodal solution into its Single-Sign-On offerings, and in October Aurionpro announced that it will bring GoVerifyID to its Digital Branch DX – multi-service Kiosk. Now, with the GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite, that same level of customized, scalable biometric security is available to any enterprise working on the Windows ecosystem.
