New BIO-key partner program yields biometric authentication customer in Europe
A consumer-facing service provider has placed an order for a biometric authentication solution from BIO-key through its newly established reseller partnership with European IT service provider and consultancy Applied Technologies, according to a company announcement.
The customer plans to use the biometric authentication capabilities of WEB-key 4.0 in combination with BIO-key’s ID Director for Windows to enhance its security network by reducing its reliance on passwords. The two software products integrate easily with Active Directory to deliver biometric security and convenience across the company. The customer will also use FIPS-compliant PIV-Pro fingerprint scanners from BIO-key, which are often used in highly regulated industries for the highest degree of accuracy and performance, the company says.
Applied Technologies provides a range of IT services, consulting, hardware, and managed network services.
“This customer and new partner success comes just two weeks after launching our Customer Alliance Partner program for MSP’s, VAR’s and security integrators such as Allied Technologies,” stated Mike DePasquale, Chairman & CEO, BIO-key. “Clearly, the most effective way for BIO-key to address the full range of enterprise cybersecurity challenges is by partnering with IT experts that regularly interface with customers and discuss their security issues. Through this process, our partners learn the value our products deliver as well as our responsiveness to their support inquiries.”
The Channel Alliance Partner (CAP) program was launched by BIO-key in late September to reach a wider customer base for the company’s multi-factor biometric solutions through managed service providers (MSPs), security integrators, and value-added resellers (VARs).
