ImageWare Systems (IWS) will be leveraging the global scale, reliability and security of Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver its biometric authentication solutions.
As a newly announced technology partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN), IWS will now build on AWS to offer GoMobile Interactive as a SaaS solution across multiple geographic regions.
Buillding on AWS allows IWS to leverage a variety of services including: the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), a service that allows users to rent virtual compute capacity to run their own applications; Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), a product that provides developers and IT teams with secure cloud storage, and; the Amazon Route 53, a highly-scalable cloud domain name system web service, among other AWS offerings.
GoMobile Interactive is an API-driven mobile platform built on ImageWare’s patented Biometric Engine. it combines dynamic template-based messaging with multi-modal biometrics for added security.
“Qualifying for the APN builds upon our commercial collaboration strategy and significantly increases our market exposure,” said Jim Miller, ImageWare’s Chairman and CEO. “We will benefit from the business, technical, and marketing support that AWS provides to its APN members, as well as AWS’ expansive geographical footprint. We will also benefit from the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the AWS platform as we take advantage of AWS advanced capabilities to provide multi-modal biometric identity verification to users on their mobile devices.”
Earlier this month, ImageWare reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2015, as well as provided a full update highlighting its progress since its last quarterly update on November 16, 2015.
