Bridgetown, Barbados Credit Union Selects BIO-key's PortalGuard to Enhance Access to Shared Workstations Including Biometrics
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados and HOLMDEL, N.J., Feb. 06, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIO-key® International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI), an innovative provider of passwordless, phoneless, and token-less Identity and Access Management (IAM) Multifactor Authentication (MFA) solutions, announced that the City of Bridgetown Co-operative Credit Union Ltd. (COB) has selected BIO-key’s PortalGuard platform with Identity-Bound Biometrics (IBB), to transform its secure login methodologies for staff access to critical systems and data. COB has multiple locations supporting more than 60,000 members in Barbados.
By implementing BIO-key’s PortalGuard platform with Identity-Bound Biometric authentication, COB ensures a more robust and reliable defense against unauthorized access to the credit union’s systems. Project requirements included meeting or exceeding cybersecurity insurance mandates and providing improved access workflows to support staff productivity. COB also desired a complete solution that could support multiple authentication factors including one-time passwords, biometrics or tokens.
These security and productivity requirements were especially important for shared workstation environments utilized by credit union tellers. PortalGuard’s centralized biometrics excel at providing instant support across a multitude of devices without requiring a hardware authentication device such as a phone or token. PortalGuard sets itself apart as a unified IAM platform, providing cutting-edge solutions to a range of use cases and business initiatives with flexibility to support a wide variety of authentication options and factors within an organization.
"BIO-key’s PortalGuard nd IBB security solutions provide robust security and best-in-class support for shared workstations where other vendor solutions are limited and costly," said Mark Cochran, President of BIO-key’s PortalGuard division. "Credit Unions and other financial institutions are embracing BIO-key’s advanced biometric security measures because we can accommodate their unique authentication use cases with secure and cost-effective approaches that protect their systems and data. BIO-key is helping accelerate our customers’ ability to execute strategic security initiatives and meet their digital transformation and compliance goals."
