Veridium adds biometric authentication, ID assurance for Microsoft Active Directory

Categories Access Control  |  Biometrics News

Veridium has launched VeridiumAD, an enterprise-ready solution that adds biometric authentication and identity assurance to Microsoft Active Directory environments.

VeridiumAD integrates with existing enterprise infrastructure without any additional hardware, allowing organizations to eliminate passwords or to enable biometrics as a second factor, replacing the need for hard and soft tokens.

“We all know that passwords are a flawed enterprise security solution – but what doesn’t get talked about often enough is how inconvenient and expensive they are to companies,” said James Stickland, CEO of Veridium. “VeridiumAD provides a seamless experience for end users while upgrading enterprise security to eliminate the inherent risks associated with passwords. The combination of convenience and security allows for better protection of corporate assets and systems on premise or remotely.”

The multi-factor authentication solution supports a range of deployment scenarios, including local computer login, virtual desktops using Citrix StoreFront, and remote access through Citrix Netscaler or to any client VPN configured to use RADIUS to authenticate remote users against the database.

The company also announced that it has appointed John Spencer, former CTO of Citrix Systems, as its chief product officer, leading the development of Veridium’s biometric authentication product roadmap.

In December, as part of the company’s rebranding and new corporate strategy, Veridium brought on fintech industry executive James Stickland as its new CEO.
