Extenua, ImageWare launch multimodal biometric cloud storage solution on AWS

November 10, 2015 - 

Extenua has partnered with ImageWare Systems to launch Cloud2Drive storage solution combined with ImageWare’s mobile, multimodal biometric GoVerifyID platform on Amazon Web Services.

Several U.S. federal agencies and American Systems Corporation have already signed up as initial users of the joint cloud storage solution with multimodal biometric authentication.

Extenua’s Cloud2Drive client software combined with GoVerifyID multimodal biometric platform enables cloud storage to work with the virtual drive cluster file system, SAFE AI.

The solution combines the industry’s most secure encryption system with ImageWare’s biometric authentication mobile application to provide the first end-to-end secure cloud storage platform for office and mobile devices.

Cloud2Drive has been designed to provide enterprises a controlled, secure and easy access solution for their cloud data, including local encryption that is independent of the cloud provider.

ImageWare’s GoVerifyID platform delivers patented, advanced fraud-prevention capabilities to organizations using various biometric authentication methods, including voice, eye, signature, fingerprint and facial recognition.

“Cloud2Drive is already a ‘best-in-class’ cloud storage product, and the addition of GoVerifyID and multi modal biometrics has now made it even better by adding both security and ease of use features,” said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. “We are pleased to partner with Extenua to make biometric authentication available to the cloud storage market. Together, we provide the most advanced level of data security the industry has been looking for.”

Previously reported, ImageWare Systems announced that it is partnering with IT solutions firm CDW Corporation to offer customers IWS biometric authentication products for mobile and cloud use cases.
