IdentityX platform upgrade includes FIDO UAF certified server component option

October 29, 2015 - 

Daon announced it has released version 4.0 of its IdentityX platform, which gives users the choice to preserve their existing security systems, integrate a biometric component, and future-proof their overall security approach, all from a single platform.

There are currently four Daon customers in North America that have already installed IdentityX v4.0 and are experiencing performance gains.

IdentityX v4.0 also includes an optional FIDO UAF certified server component. Several Daon customers — including some of the world’s largest financial services and payments companies — are preparing to activate FIDO features.

Version 4.0 offers several improvements to the IdentityX security model, API interface and administration console.

IdentityX v4.0 also offers a faster and more accurate face matching algorithm, as well as supports new platforms, including Windows Server 2012 and SQL Server 2012.

“Daon is committed to offering our customers the best support possible when integrating IdentityX into their overall security schema,” said Tom Grissen, CEO at Daon. “We understand that the user’s digital experience remains a priority across all sectors we work with, from financial services to healthcare to insurance and many more, but enhancements to the digital experience cannot sacrifice security.

“Mobile biometric authentication offers a faster, more convenient and secure option for authentication than traditional usernames and passwords. IdentityX 4.0 is the latest evolution of our award-winning platform and we look forward to continuing to support new and existing customers with the latest technology available in the market.”

Daon has posted a video demonstration of IdentityX on its website.

Previously reported, Daon announced that one of its customers, USAA, has reached a milestone of processing 1 million mobile biometric enrollments.
