Nymi’s HeartID integrated into Atos authentication solutions

Atos is launching a secure authentication method through its Bull technological brand that uses the wearable authentication device Nymi Band to verify the user’s identity by analyzing their heartbeat.

Evidian Enterprise SSO (Single Sign-On) solution enables users to securely access their data and critical applications via multi-factor authentication biometric methods from Nymi, such as HeartID or Always On Authentication.

The solution allows users to authenticate themselves and stay authenticated, as well as seamlessly and securely communicate with authorized workstations, either via Bluetooth Low Energy technologies or via NFC (Near Field Communication).

“It is an entirely unique experience for end users: this innovative authentication will make the way they work simpler while guaranteeing company security, said Louis-Marie Fouchard, manager of the Identity Management product range at Atos. “Together, Atos and Nymi will be able to attain operational excellence, even in the most sensitive of fields, while continuing to offer optimal user convenience for their teams.”

Evidian Enterprise SSO can be used in several sectors including health, the pharmaceutical industry and research laboratories, enabling users to sign in by simply pressing their Nymi Band against an NFC reader.

Users are authenticated by Bluetooth and, as a result of wireless connection, continue to be logged in until they leave their workstation.

“We are delighted to work with partners like Atos to offer a new form of authentication aimed in particular at the health and pharmaceuticals sectors,” said Shawn Chance, vice president of strategy at Nymi. “The unique Always On Authentication technology of the Nymi Band enables clinicians, doctors and nursing staff to easily access their data while maintaining complete security, without using their hands or having to remember a PIN or a password. The combined solution brings together security and convenience like never before.”

Previously reported, Atos integrated facial recognition capabilities into its border control solution, CENTINELA.
