Biometric Security for Retail: ImageWare Debuts First Ever Multimodal Biometric Authentication Solution for the Microsoft Ecosystem

Cloud-based Solution Seamlessly Integrates and is Backward Compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10 

SAN DIEGO, Calif., 2016-Nov-14 — /EPR Retail News/ —ImageWare Systems, Inc. (ImageWare) (OTCQB: IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, today introduced GoVerifyID® Enterprise Suite, an innovative, multi-modal, multi-factor biometric authentication solution for the enterprise market. An algorithm-agnostic solution, GoVerify ID Enterprise Suite is the first ever end-to-end biometric platform that seamlessly integrates with an enterprise’s existing Microsoft infrastructure, offering businesses a turnkey biometric solution for quick deployment in an afternoon or less.

“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,” said Jim Miller, chairman & CEO of ImageWare. “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.”

Working across the entire enterprise ecosystem, GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite offers a consistent user experience and centralized administration with the highest level of security, flexibility, and usability. Specific benefits include:

  • Mobile-workforce friendly—With GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite user authentication logins are possible for a tablet or laptop even when disconnected from the corporate network. Additionally, GoVerifyID Enterprise offers a consistent user authentication experience across all login environments.
  • Hybrid cloud—GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite is linked from the cloud to an enterprise’s Microsoft infrastructure and is backward compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10. Additionally, because the solution is SaaS-based it can easily scale to process hundreds of millions of transactions and store just as many biometrics.
  • Seamless integration—GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite is a snap-in to the Microsoft Management console and can be centrally managed at the server. Additionally, the solution allows for seamless movement as it integrates with Active Directory using an organization’s existing Microsoft security infrastructure.
  • Ultimate freedom—ImageWare has extensive relationships with leading biometric algorithm vendors, its Biometric Engine is specifically designed to easily add and support new biometric algorithms, future proofing a corporation’s investment in GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite.

A pioneer and innovator in biometrics for decades, ImageWare reinvented the biometrics field with its algorithm-agnostic, real-time and ultra-scalable Biometric Engine®, which was granted the “Product Innovation of the Year Award” by Frost & Sullivan. Additionally, the company’s GoMobile Interactive® product was recognized by CTIA, the Wireless Association, receiving First Place Award for Emerging Technology (E-Tech) in the Mobile Money, Payments, Banking & Commerce category. Together, the Biometric Engine and GoMobile Interactive form the basis of the GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite cloud component.
