BIO-key gets validation for IBM Security Access Manager for Web

June 3, 2013 - 

IBM has granted validation of BIO-Key International’s finger biometric authentication solutions for the IBM Security Access Manager for Web.

The access manager – ISAM – works to centralize network and application security policy for e-business applications. The complete integration of BIO-key solutions within ISAM for Web was completed earlier this month and is now available for customer implementation. BIO-Key’s ID Director for ISM for Web delivers two-factor and risk based authentication for ISAM for Web, leveraging its biometric technology.

“We are enthused to receive our certification for the latest IBM security platform solution for Web applications. Any IBM customer utilizing ISAM can now add a biometric component for convenient multi-factor authentication to any supported application,” Mike DePasquale, BIO-key CEO said. “Considering the size of IBM’s installed base of accounts this can represent a significant opportunity for BIO-key.”

The company’s technology operates on any type of device including PCs, workstations, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Additionally, says the company, BIO-key’s software is compatible with most of the major platforms and is integrated with more than forty fingerprint readers.

Reported previously, the company has recently announced that SW Global, a provider of Inforation Technology Services throughout Africa, will implement BIO-key’s fingerprint biometric technology as a part of a Nigerian Communications Commission objective regarding SIM card sales in the country.
