BIO-key Launches Mobile Authenticator with Server-Secured and On-Device Multi-Biometric Methods to be Showcased at 2022 Gartner IAM Summit
LAS VEGAS and WALL, N.J., Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIO-key International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI), an innovative provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Identity-Bound Biometric (IBB) solutions, will showcase new innovations at the Gartner Identity and Access Management (IAM) Summit (Booth 232) at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, August 22-24th. BIO-key will highlight new authentication methods, as additions to the current PalmPositiveTM palm scanning method, for its BIO-key MobileAuthTM mobile app, including FacePositiveTM for server-secured facial recognition, device-based biometrics for Android and iOS, and new push token support. They will also highlight a new admin user experience for its award-winning PortalGuard® Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) platform.
The Gartner Summit gathers some of the most influential industry leaders and enterprise organizations in the IAM business. This year’s theme focuses on the adoption of new IAM approaches amidst a great digital transformation and reliance on remote business being experienced by organizations of all sizes. The shift in how businesses engage with employees, customers, and suppliers makes connecting identity management with the requirements of the business even more urgent for safeguarding critical information. For Enterprises who are dealing with remote workforces and consumers, MobileAuth with its Identity-Bound Biometric (IBB) methods allows them to use highly secure credentials that cannot be phished, SIM-swapped, handed over, or used for Account Takeover (ATO). MobileAuth dramatically reduces the cost of deploying strong authentication compared with cost of mainstream multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions, for example the provisioning of multiple hardware tokens per user.
“Shifting paradigms in authentication have made one thing clear – the status quo is not enough for today’s challenges and certainly not for tomorrow’s,” said Michael DePasquale, Chairman and CEO of BIO-key. “We plan to disrupt the status quo with our cutting-edge security solutions, like Identity-Bound Biometrics and our one-of-a-kind multi-factor authentication (MFA) app, MobileAuth, which put people back at the center of IAM. We expect global enterprises and industry leaders to take note of how we’re re-establishing the role of trust in security by providing authentication that verifies the person.”
Attendees are invited to stop by booth 232 to discuss their cybersecurity priorities and see live demonstrations of BIO-key’s IAM solutions. Demonstrations will include support for Zero Trust environments, securing remote access, meeting cyber insurance requirements for MFA, implementing passwordless workflows, and providing Customer IAM (CIAM) capabilities for streamlined enrollment and secure customer access. Visitors to BIO-key’s booth during the summit can register to win $500, or a donation to a charity of their choice in that amount, by scanning their palm using MobileAuth.
BIO-key will showcase its latest innovations that reimagine authentication for companies, their employees, and their customers:
