Avatier adds multifactor biometric authentication to its Identity Management Suite
ImageWare has entered into a five-year deal with Avatier to provide GoVerifyID for the Avatier Identity Management Suite.
The Avatier Identity Management Suite (AIMS) is offered as a software suite with multiple, separately licensed modules for password reset, user provisioning, single sign-on and access governance.
The OEM agreement will include the integration of GoVerifyID into the Avatier product line, beginning with their password reset software, Password Station. Avatier will market and resell the combined solution to their existing and prospective customers, and ImageWare will host the GoVerifyID SaaS on Amazon Web Services. Avatier customers include Nordstrom, Marriott, DHL, Cox Communications, Fiserv, ING, and Volkswagon.
“ImageWare’s GoVerifyID SaaS offering provides the most secure, flexible, and scalable user biometric authentication solution on the market,” said Nelson Cicchitto, CEO of Avatier. “GoVerifyID will enable us to quickly deploy biometric authentication for our customers worldwide.”
GoVerifyID is ImageWare’s enterprise solution that covers the full range of biometric authentication, including: identity proofing, cloud provisioning, on-device enrollment, real-time authentication, seamless integration into existing security workflows, and a turnkey self-service portal.
This mobile/cloud SaaS offering allows customers to modify their passwords or two-factor authentication using biometrics.
ImageWare’s Chairman and CEO Jim Miller commented: “Avatier is a pioneer and well respected leader in the Identity Governance and Administration industry and password management solution providers in the global IT industry. This integration aligns with our mission of securing the world by providing IT security to organizations with the highest level of security concerns, while enhancing and simplifying the user experience. We look forward to providing biometric user authentication to Avatier for their customers.”
The parties anticipate commencing sales in the fourth quarter of 2016.
