BioID facial biometrics integrated into TESIS SYSware enterprise access control system
BioID’s cloud biometric BioID Web Service (BWS) has been integrated by German self-service password management SaaS provider TESIS SYSware to enable enterprises to implement biometric facial authentication as part of a multi-factor solution.
TESIS SYSware’s ASPR automated password recovery tool now offers BioID’s face recognition with liveness detection for secure, broadly usable authentication on any device and platform, according to the announcement. Employees scan a QR code from the ASPR Web-Interface to start BioID’s “Biometrics-as-a-Service” application on her or his smartphone, and then complete the authentication to enable the desired action, such as a password reset.
“TESIS SYSware supports customers by offering a comprehensive password management system. Security and reliability thus were the main categories for selecting a partner for strong biometric authentication,” says TESIS SYSware Managing Director Christian Tilly. “With BioID’s technology implemented in ASPR, we are now able to perform identity proofing in an intuitive and highly innovative way.”
ASPR allows businesses with flexible work environments and home office workers to deploy step-up authentication and adapt to risk scenarios with stronger authentication methods, the companies say. BioID’s focus on anti-spoofing liveness detection, which capability it launched in early 2018, prevents fraud with faked IDs, photos, or videos, to stop the misuse of data or identities in unsupervised situations.
“We are happy to welcome TESIS SYSware as one of our German partners. Their sophisticated password management software is perfect for being complemented by biometric technologies,” says BioID CEO Ho Chang. “We are convinced that this collaboration will mutually benefit companies and users alike. It enables a cost efficient and reliable password reset procedure with seamless user experience.”
