AAEON partners with iSign to enable tablets with biometric signature technology

January 3, 2017 - 

Rugged tablets developer AAEON Electronics, Inc. has partnered with biometric signature security firm iSign International Inc., enabling AAEON’s rugged tablets to use iSign’s enterprise IT security solution.

The biometric signature solution is compatible with all of AAEON’s IP65 certified and MIL-STD-810G rugged tablet touch screens, without having to incur the cost of additional biometric hardware.

iSign’s technology delivers 99.999% security while meeting the most strict mobile enterprise security standards.

“AAEON is extremely excited about this strategic partnership with iSign International,” said Chuck Anderson, national sales manager of AAEON Electronic’s rugged mobile division. “iSign’s biometric signature technology bundled with AAEON’s best-in-class rugged tablets is an affordable security solution for mobile device user verification. Securing corporate data and applications continues to be the #1 challenge for Enterprise IT mobile management. We’ve eliminated traditional biometric authentication hardware and complex VPN services while maintaining a 99.999% secure mobile platform.”

AAEON rugged tablets range in size from 5.7″ to 11.6″ and offer a range of optional accessories.

Meanwhile, the iSign software agent installs on the tablet to secure access to the device without the need for network connectivity.

The software automatically learns the user’s biometric signature over time, meaning that the more frequently the user signs into the device, the more accurately it recognizes a signature.

In addition, IT policies can be configured for remote alerts and lock-down. Other security features includes iSign’s 2048 bit encryption, Dynamic PKI, and a proprietary GPS-based biometric signature.

“iSign is excited to partner with a leading hardware manufaturer of rugged mobile devices,” said Thien Pham, Chief Technology Officer. “iSign’s unique approach to digital security with artificial intelligence allows us to create a cybersecurity game changing solution stack with unsurpassed protection against hacking.”
