Upgraded KSI + bioLock tool includes biometrics for SAP access control
Under its partnership with bioLock software developer realtime North America, Key Source International (KSI) will be expanding its portfolio to include a new biometric solution for SAP access control, the company announced.
By combining KSI’s 1700 series biometric keyboard with bioLock software, companies will no longer rely on passwords to login and will benefit from robust security within SAP modules. KSI + bioLock supports more than 25 verticals, including financial services, enterprise, government, and healthcare sectors.
The keyboard’s integrated HID Crossmatch biometric fingerprint reader and Windows Hello for logon are included in a multifactor authentication strategy. SAP platform access is granted through biometrics and the bioLock software hard-coded within SAP’s ABAP programming language. Users can leverage biometrics for reauthentication, while system administrators will be informed about denied requests.
“Used by governments and multinational corporations around the world, SAP is more popular than ever,” said KSI CEO Philip Bruno, in a prepared statement. “KSI + bioLock is well positioned to help protect SAP customers against insider threats, leaks, and data breaches that have become pervasive and publicized. Our solution also supports compliance with GDPR and the growing number of data privacy laws now on the books that have potential to negatively impact an entity’s bottom line. We couldn’t be more pleased to work with realtime North America to deliver this comprehensive security product to SAP users.”
Due to its granular biometric controls included in SAP, bioLock prevents identity fraud. A desktop solution is also available. bioLock is among the first biometric solutions to be certified by SAP. It requires no special training, secures shared workstations, creates an audit trail and leverages biometrics to secure SAP transactions.
“In seeking technology partners, we collaborate only with those who add tremendous value for the SAP customer,” said Thomas Neudenberger, COO of realtime North America, in a prepared statement. “We obviously endorse KSI without reservation as a certified companion product to our bioLock security suite for SAP. KSI has a brilliant track record in the healthcare sector, with hundreds of thousands of biometric devices in the field. The care that goes into making every KSI keyboard is evident. State-of-the-art and embedded with topnotch components, these security devices provide superior access control and data input routed through a single USB for increased efficiencies and improved workflow for SAP customers.”
