iSign releases access platform with biometric signature and 2FA

April 7, 2017 - 

iSign International released its iSecure Captive Portal (ICP) 2017, designed to provide users access to networks and the Internet via biometric signature recognition.

ICP platform delivers complete protection with active monitoring and artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze user access behaviors, helping organizations to improve their bottom line through rapid deployment, seamless operations, and reduced infrastructure costs.

The platform is equipped with an intuitive graphical user interface for managing users and WiFi access points (AP), reducing the deployment time by more than 80 percent.

ICP is compatible with all WiFi AP, such as Extreme Network AP7522. Organizations can configure and install per Wireless AP, deploying the platform in less than 5 minutes.

User enrollments are all conducted through the graphical ICP control panel that will automatically email users a full set of instructions to enroll their biometric signature from any location and with any device.

ICP provides service continuity in production networks at scale, and conducts simplified infrastructure lifecycle management, upgrades and security patches through the cloud with little to no impact to operations and network stability.

With AI built-in, ICP actively monitors hacking attempts, prevents the source of the hacking and immediately notifies the network security team via email and/or SMS.

iSecure Captive Portal 2017 is available to iSign’s technology partners starting April 15, and will include access to ICP control panel, ICP standalone server, user training, and weekly webinars.

“Recently, users across the U.S. experienced the effects of DDoS on several websites, attributed greatly to IoT devices used as part of the network that was orchestrated by WiFi APs,” Gail-Joon Ahn, director of ASU’s Center for Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics (CDF). “Many people still use a default username and password for their WiFi AP, the central point of internet connection for all of their home devices.

“This lack of security can cause severe problems as malicious users could take over legitimate internet connection and use any unprotected device connected to the router, even smart home appliances. iSign’s technologies would tremendously reduce potential risks by preventing such users from accessing legitimate network and protecting network perimeters.”

Previously reported, AAEON Electronics, Inc. partnered with iSign, enabling AAEON’s rugged tablets to use iSign’s enterprise IT security solution.
