Fujitsu, ImageWare expanding biometric security solutions portfolio
The company’s current portfolio includes the Fujitsu PalmSecure family, the SAMURAI Platform, the RoboSOC (SOC in a Box) solution, consulting services, systems integration services, Security Operations Centers (SOC) and other managed security services — all of which are available across North, South and Central America.
“After forming a technology partnership several years ago, ImageWare and Fujitsu have seamlessly integrated key offerings so that they are now market ready,” said Jason Bradlee, head of security for the America region at Fujitsu America, Inc. “We are working with ImageWare on a number of opportunities, including a large-scale federated identity project with several major players using a number of our enterprise and cyber security solutions including our biometrics and identity-as-a-service product, which is scheduled for launch later this quarter. We look forward to continuing this partnership.”
Fujitsu’s biometric identity and access management solutions, including its flagship PalmSecure palm vein authentication solution, leverage ImageWare System’s Biometric Engine as its back end identity storage and matching database.
Customers will now be able to deploy biometric authentication as a service with several public, private and hybrid cloud hosting options including Fujitsu Cloud Service K5.
They will also have access to ImageWare Systems GoVerifyID Enterprise Suite, which provides multimodal biometric authentication for the full breadth of an organization’s ecosystems, and CloudID line of products.
The suite combines consistent user experience and centralized administration with the highest level of security, flexibility, and usability.
Additionally, the suite integrates with the Microsoft security infrastructure through Microsoft Active Directory and other enterprise directory services.
“This agreement represents the migration from technology partners to marketing and sales partners,” said Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems, Inc. “The Fujitsu brand is synonymous with quality, service and value around the world, serving millions of customers. We are very proud to be at the core of the family of biometric and security products they offer to their clients as we now move these products to market.”
Previously reported, Fujitsu recently added cognitive technologies including artificial intelligence (AI) and voice biometrics to improve its next-generation Service Desk, the Social Command Center (SCC).
