Fujitsu RunMyProcess integrates ImageWare biometric authentication for IoT security

Fujitsu RunMyProcess integrates ImageWare biometric authentication for IoT security
 

Digital business platform Fujitsu RunMyProcess has selected ImageWare Systems’ IoT DNA Security to provide biometric authentication for its DigitalSuite process integration and business workflow platform.

The integration guarantees data security and user access control over IoT devices, according to the announcement. Data security is a pressing challenge for the IoT industry, the companies say, with hackers gaining access to unsecured connected devices or tying them into botnets to launch distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks. The announcement cites an IDC report that data generated by IoT devices is expected to grow to 79.4 Zettabytes by 2025.

With the new integration, businesses can use ImageWare’s IoT DNA Security within DigitalSuite to add multiple forms of authentication, including biometrics, to secure devices and the data they hold.

“Traditional cyber security strategies have slowed adoption rates for IoT projects,” comments Fujitsu RunMyProcess CEO Hiroshi Yazawa. “We are working to reverse that trend by incorporating the IoT DNA Security biometric technology from ImageWare Systems into our RunMyProcess DigitalSuite, which makes it possible to quickly and securely build connected applications that extend enterprise systems to people, clouds and devices across the digital world. Through our partnership with ImageWare Systems, we are able to address today’s IoT-related challenges and take the security and scalability of IoT devices, data and applications to a whole new level.”

“Combining the advanced user authentication and device data security capabilities of ImageWare’s IoT DNA Security with the DigitalSuite from Fujitsu RunMyProcess, IoT vendors can solve their number one challenge for IoT deployments – cyber security,” adds ImageWare Systems Chairman and CEO Jim Miller. “IoT platforms and application vendors can now securely authorize users, via multiple biometrics, access to IoT devices.”

Securing IoT devices is also the focus of a new working group launched by the FIDO Alliance in June.
