Unisys enhances biometric authentication capabilities of Stealth platform
 

Unisys has announced an update to the biometrics capabilities of its Stealth platform to include passive liveness detection and single sign-on technologies.

Stealth is an adaptive, risk-based authentication solution designed to lower the total cost of management from identity proofing to authorization for access by simplifying  security policies and working within existing infrastructures.

The platform also features single sign-on (SSO) capabilities to offer an additional layer of protection for individual applications within the enterprise systems.

“Secure identity authentication is one of the most critical business challenges today, especially with many employees operating from home,” said Chris Kloes, vice president at Unisys.

Following the update, Stealth now offers passive liveness detection capabilities, including a managed identity interface. Through this interface, the platform can cross-reference a variety of biometric results against existing records, including from fingerprint readers and other recognition methods.

Stealth now also includes a network access control (NAC) integration, to allow the exchange of data between the software and businesses’ current repository of data, and ensure that employees trying to access the system have the correct access credentials.

Finally, Stealth has been updated to provide coders with a mobile and web-accessible software development kit that allows for enhanced customization, including thermal camera integration and QR code authentication.

Commenting on the news, Kloes explained the benefits of passwordless and biometric authentication.

“Passwords and PINs can be forgotten, stolen, or spoofed. Stealth provides a cost-effective way to help defend against fraud and improper access, while an integrated biometrics platform makes the environment more secure while asking less of users – resulting in an improved user experience,” he concluded.
