Rowem launches multi-channel biometric authentication platform globally
South Korea’s Rowem has announced the global launch of what the company describes as an integrated authentication platform, with biometrics or a four-digit passcode for multi-factor and multi-channel authentication.
Rowem’s PASSiKEY is a mobile application intended to simplify online identification for authentication and payments to websites. The four-digit code is randomized with a 16-digit converter to reduce the risk of phishing or hacking. User information is verified by a partner company following PASSiKEY authentication, to provide additional secondary authentication through the PASSiKEY API.
The authentication technology has been recognized as an alternative to public key certificates by South Korea’s Financial Supervisory Service (FSS).
“As more companies go online and become digitized, security is most in demand and in this regard, companies that adopt PASSiKEY for free are guaranteed the best security service for no additional charge,” states Rowem CEO An Taeho in the announcement.
The company held a conference in Seoul this month on “the South Korean IT industry’s Proposal for the Post-Corona Era,” co-hosted with FPT Information System. Experts from industry, academia and government gave presentations on the importance of digital transformation, the increasing need for personal data protection, and related topics.
“The key takeaway from the changes that various countries’ specialists have brought up is the authentication technology involved in security,” An said in closing remarks at the conference. “Both the convenience that consumers seek and the security that service providers pursue have to be realized.”
