BIO-key International is a Silver Sponsor at this week’s connect:ID 2016 conference and exhibition in Washington, D.C. and will be showcasing its biometric authentication solutions for on-device and the cloud.
BIO-key has, in partnership with 2FA, developed an enterprise biometric authentication solution that extends device authentication available in Windows Hello to traditional Active Directory (AD) joined systems and has recently added support for Azure AD.
The company will also be demonstrating its SideTouch compact fingerprint reader. SideTouch was developed to address the growing number of enterprise and consumer users looking to replace passwords with biometric authentication solutions such as Windows Hello, on their existing devices.
Jim Sullivan, BIO-key’s SVP Global Sales, will be representing the International Biometrics & Identification Association (IBIA) on a panel session entitled Biometric Authentication: Changing the face of mobile security, presented in association with the FIDO Alliance.
The panel will discuss the future of mobile authentication — specifically, how the integration of biometrics into traditional two-factor authentication tasks is transforming mobile security for simpler and strong authentication for end users.
“BIO-key is delighted to be both a sponsor and invited presenter at this prestigious conference,” said Jim Sullivan, BIO-key SVP Global Sales. “The FIDO panel on the future of mobile authentication is a gathering of thought leaders on this important topic, and intends to demystify the interrelation of several foundational concepts on how biometrics can be used in simplifying authentication, as well as combating fraud. Hackers were recently successful in stealing $80M of a $1B attempted bank heist from Bangladesh’s central bank using stolen SWIFT credentials, captured using on-device malware. The time is now for a comprehensively better way to authenticate.”
