BIO-key International has announced that it will present its latest advances for interoperable fingerprint authentication at IBM’s Pulse 2013, taking place March 3-6, 2013 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
According to the company, BIO-key’s fingerprint biometric technology, integrated with the IBM Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On (ISAM ESSO), offers IBM customers the unique ability to authenticate on any device or platform based on a single enrollment.
“Our partnership with IBM is highly valued because of their vast global influence,” Mike DePasquale, BIO-key CEO said. “IBM is focused on delivering the next level of security solutions to meet the demands of a technology marketplace that’s experiencing measurable growth and generating high volumes of Big Data.”
IBM customers use BIO-key in conjunction with ISAM ESSO to enhance security and enable multi-factor authentication. To extend the awareness and capabilities amongst the IBM technical and sales support team along with IBM resellers, IBM published a Redguide featuring BIO-key technology.
“As desktops and laptop/notebook PCs evolve to tablets and smartphones, BIO-key’s interoperable biometric solutions enable customers to authenticate seamlessly from any device and from a single enrollment in the cloud,” DePasquale said.
Last month, BIO-key announced that it had received orders in excess of $1 million from healthcare and blood center customers in the fourth quarter of 2012. New orders included expanded services and technologies for several hospitals, reaching agreements with two blood centers to install BIO-key’s TruDonor ID as well as sales developed through growing OEM relationships.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, content management and applied security solutions provider, Blue Spike filed a patent infringement suit against BIO-key in August 2012 for allegedly infringing on patents dealing with “Method and Device for Monitoring and Analyzing Signals.”
