Applied Recognition signs Canadian distribution partner


Toronto-based CognoSytems has agreed to distribute Ver-ID Face Authenticator, Applied Recognition’s biometric solution that eliminates corporations’ reliance on passwords.

Ver-ID Face Authenticator overlays a biometric verification step to any legacy network login process. Face verification is done via the FA mobile app which guides the user through a quick series of randomized poses to prevent spoofing while verifying the user’s identity against their pre-registered face. Once authenticated, the legacy login process is completed. The FA solution also provides a visual audit trail of all login activity.

“We’re delighted to welcome CognoSystems as our business partner”, said Ray Ganong, Co-CEO of Applied Recognition. “As industry-leading experts in enterprise network access control systems, they’ve recognized the security innovation and peace-of-mind that Ver-ID can bring to any organization. We’re looking forward to accelerating the deployment and adoption of this core technology across Canada.”
