ImageWare introduces new identity proofing and biometric authentication solution

ImageWare Systems, a leading developer of mobile and cloud-based identity management solutions providing end-to-end digital identity proofing, authentication and management solutions both as a cloud-based SaaS and for on-premise deployments, announced the ImageWare Digital Identity Platform which will debut at RSA Conference 2019.

Built upon highly patented biometric capabilities, the ImageWare Digital Identity Platform is a seamlessly integrated suite of products that provides the broadest set of biometric authentication factors combined with the most robust identity proofing capabilities.

Identity, the new security perimeter

In the last several years, identity proofing and authentication has started the transition – from operational and user experience driven – to recognition as core to enterprise security. Today, the issue of identity, and its inherent connection to security, is more important than ever.

Continued data breaches related to passwords and two-factor authentication (2FA) make it clear that IT Security Executives need to think differently about information security. Phishing as a service, and intercepted SMS communications, are just a few examples that show the inherent security issues with today’s passwords and 2FA solutions.

Leading companies have begun to realize that they can no longer rely on basic 2FA measures. No matter where a company is on its identity authentication journey, ImageWare’s Digital Identity Platform allows organizations to easily integrate the desired level of identity proofing and authentication to their existing ecosystems.

Vic Herring, Vice President, Head of Global Software Center, Fujitsu Technology and Business America said that, “Our valued partnership allows our customers to use the ImageWare Digital Identity Platform to easily integrate the most secure, flexible, and scalable identity proofing and biometric authentication solution in the market.”

Ben Goodman, Vice President, Global Strategy and Innovation, ForgeRock, commented, “As a valued member of the ForgeRock Trust Network, the ImageWare Digital Identity Platform further strengthens our customers’ digital onboarding and biometric authentication solutions.”

Nobuhiro Suemasa, CEO of TwoFive, a customer of the new platform, stated, “While two-factor authentication adds an extra level of security, potentially meaningful security risks still exist for organizations. ImageWare’s Digital Identity Platform now allows us to integrate the desired level of identity proofing and authentication for our large ISPs and enterprise customers.”

Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems said, “Identity IS the new security perimeter and the breadth of our Digital Identity Platform distinguishes us from basic two-factor authentication, biometric, and digital proofing companies. Our solutions are perfect for enterprises, IT Service Providers, and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) across a wide range of industries and vertical markets.”
