ImageWare biometric platform to secure a24.io Secure Global Cloud
Global secure cloud provider a24.io has selected ImageWare Systems to secure customer authentication with its GoVerifyID biometric platform under a distribution and integration partnership.
The a24.io Secure Global Cloud spans the enterprise network, data center, and on-premise environments to provide secure, high performance from the LAN edge directly into the cloud, according to the announcement. The company serves customers including Cisco, IBM, and Fusion Sports.
“Simplifying and securing the authentication process is critical to the success of both on premise and cloud resources,” says s24.io CEO Terry Warren. “After an extensive search, we chose ImageWare Systems’ GoVerifyID (GVID) platform to secure the a24.io ecosystem as well as our customers’. GVID now allows us the freedom to choose the appropriate authentication method on a per user basis, from two-factor authentication (2FA) through multi-factor authentication (MFA) without any further integration effort needed. If a user’s access requirements change, we can readily update their profile on the fly to enable or disable the usable authentication methods. This level of security and control is unprecedented in the market today.”
The integration’s first deployments are anticipated in the first quarter of 2019, and a24.io is targeting several new market segments.
“The a24.io partnership marks an important entry into the UK market with a highly regarded organization with a global reach,” comments ImageWare Executive Chairman and CEO Jim Miller. “We are equally enthused to also work with a24.io throughout North America and Asia. The company has aggressive growth plans and we look forward to material revenues beginning in Q1.”
ImageWare also announced a series of new deals and the opening of a new office in Japan to support its increasing sales in July.
