BIO-key International has achieved CA validation status for its Bio-Key ID Director for CA SiteMinder.
The CA Validation program is designed to provide a standard process to verify technology partners’ integrated products. Specific criteria must be met including confirming a technology partners’ integrated solution correctly installs, configures and performs as described by the technology partner.
BIO-key is a Select member of the Technology Partner Program of CA Technologies and is a vendor of the Cloud Commons marketplace, an online ecosystem developed by CA Technologies that facilitates the buying and selling of IT solutions, cloud services and content.
“Interoperability and flexibility are key elements for CA SiteMinder as a secure single sign-on and access management platform,” Shawn Sprague, Security Product Management, CA Technologies said. “Extending our technology interoperability with BIO-key to add another form of authentication reinforces our commitment to security and making sure our customers can leverage complementary industry capabilities.”
BIO-key and CA Technologies are both in the process of deploying a secure authentication platform developed collaboratively, for inmates in the British Columbia justice system seeking access to their personal records.
“We’re enthused about taking the next steps with CA Technologies as we have already secured and provided solutions for our first mutual customer, the BC Department of Corrections,” Mike DePasquale, BIO-key, CEO said. “The opportunity for BIO-key to be represented in the Cloud Commons marketplace extends our reach and customer base. With increased awareness along with the opportunity to present our technology to thousands of attendees at CA World 2013, we anticipate the strength of this partnership will continue to grow.”
Reported in BiometricUpdate.com, earlier this month, BIO-key International reported a profitable fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2012.
The company will showcase the Bio-Key ID Director for CA SiteMinder and its most recent mobile authentication solutions at CA World 2013, in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 21-24.
