Facial recognition technology for user authentication
DigitalPersona announced the latest release of its enterprise software which builds upon its existing support for a wide variety of user authentication methods by including facial recognition technology.
DigitalPersona Pro Enterprise also delivers expanded browser support, improved multi-credential support and support for kiosk shared accounts. These enhancements address the need for user authentication and access control in healthcare, financial services and government installations.
The software solution supports a wide range of authentication methods, including passwords, PINs, fingerprint biometrics, proximity cards, smart cards, OATH tokens and now facial recognition.
Customers can use their existing Active Directory infrastructure with DigitalPersona Pro to simplify policy creation and enforcement. With this release, DigitalPersona Pro has added multi-factor, multi-credential support for Citrix XenApp virtual desktop, allowing organizations to deliver authentication to “follow me” desktops in kiosk environments.
“Businesses are under immense pressure to control and manage user access to critical applications and information. However, many authentication solutions can be difficult to deploy and use, impacting employee productivity and driving up IT costs,” said Kavya Muthanna, director of enterprise product management at DigitalPersona. “DigitalPersona Pro Enterprise gives organizations their choice of authentication methods and deployment models, reducing strain on both IT and employees, resulting in significant value to our customers.”
