Fujitsu biometrics-as-a-service platform now available in Australia

 

Fujitsu’s Biometrics as a Service platform is now available in Australia thanks to a partnership agreement with ImageWare Systems following successful collaborations in Europe and North America.

The cloud-based solution will enable Australian organizations to deploy and manage centralized biometric authentication and supports multimodal biometric authentication through mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks.

By leveraging a centralized architecture, the solution allows new biometric information to be checked against an organization’s existing biometrics databases to reduce fraud, something that is not possible with match-on-device solutions. According to the announcement, organizations leveraging single sign on (SSO) and remote access solutions can now enhance security for all users with this multi-factor authentication service.

“Through this agreement with ImageWare Systems, our customers gain access to an enhanced portfolio of biometric security solutions that reduce the barriers to deploying highly secure biometric authentication,” commented Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer, Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand.

Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems, added: “This agreement further extends our marketing and sales activities with Fujitsu to new regions en route to a truly global offering. Fujitsu’s global capability extends the reach of ImageWare’s patented, multimodal biometric technology as a core element of Fujitsu’s cyber security portfolio across the globe.”
