Unisys releases cloud-based biometric identity solution

Unisys has released a cloud-based biometric solution dubbed Unisys Stealth(identity) Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), to provide the identity proofing and authentication capabilities of Stealth(identity) with the agility, easy deployment, and cost-effectiveness of Microsoft Azure, the company announced.

Unisys claims its solution covers a variety of biometric authentication technologies such as facial recognition and behavioral biometrics, with other features planned to be added soon. The biometric identity management software is built on Unisys’ 20 year-experience in developing solutions for citizen identification and border security.

The SaaS version of Stealth(identity) authenticates individuals’ identities to safeguard physical and digital channels from identity fraud, and gives more control over biometric management processes by adding an extra protection layer for applications that rely on biometrics for authentication such as e-commerce, banking or transportation.

The SaaS release promises a faster return-on-investment for many businesses, as a subscription accounted for in OpEx budgeting. It also supports single sign-on capabilities.

“By offering Stealth(identity) as a cloud-based service, Unisys is leveraging our experience in delivering large-scale national ID and border protection biometric implementations and making them available for smaller-scale enterprise implementations like online banking or airline passenger boarding or second factor biometric authentication,” said Vishal Gupta, chief technology officer and senior vice president of technology, Unisys. “Stealth(identity) gives clients a simplified, cost-saving effective way of addressing the problem of identity fraud by establishing accurate, unique, verified and irrefutable identities – resulting in greater security and convenience.”

Last month, Unisys signed a contract with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide biometric technologies to fight fraud and identity theft. Before partnering with the US health department, Unisys announced a collaboration with Queensland in Australia that would integrate Stealth(identity) with smart card drivers’ licenses to prevent fraud.
