ImageWare Systems licenses mobile biometric verification solution to Telos

June 14, 2016 - 

ImageWare Systems has licensed its mobile biometric authentication service GoVerifyID — which is offered on Amazon Web Services (AWS) on-demand cloud platform — to continuous security solutions provider Telos Corporation for use with HPE Aruba ClearPass.

Telos is a leading ClearPass reseller to both the U.S. federal government and commercial organizations.

Recently, ImageWare and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) teamed up to integrate GoVerifyID with ClearPass, a network access management solution that manages over 65 million end-points.

The integrated product is an enterprise-ready, turnkey, biometric authentication Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution.

The GoVerifyID is a scalable, enterprise-ready, pay-as-you-go offering that enables customers to use their own biometric solutions without incurring any upfront infrastructure costs.

Through this latest partnership, Telos will become a reseller of GoVerifyID, offer HPE Aruba ClearPass integrated with GoVerifyID, and provide and manage an instance of a multi-tenant GoVerifyID system on AWS for their customers.

Additionally, Telos will provide the integrated solution via Telos Ghost, a private cloud solution offering anonymous mobile voice, video, network and web access.

“Telos aligns with our mission of securing the world by providing IT security to organizations with the highest level of concerns, such as the DoD and intelligence community,” said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. “Empowering Telos to provide GoVerifyID on AWS, as well as their private and secure Telos Ghost cloud, enables them to provide our multi-modal biometric user authentication service to the broadest range of customers.”

Previously reported, ImageWare Systems appointed Dana Kammersgard to its board of directors, expanding the board to eight members, with seven serving independently.
