BIO-key International, Inc., a provider of identity and access management solutions featuring ‘Identity-Bound Biometrics,’ has announced it is integrating its PortalGuard IDaaS platform with BeyondTrust, an intelligent identity and access security provider.
The companies say this partnership between the two companies will provide improved remote access security and assurance that only authorized users can access essential systems, data and applications.
“The BeyondTrust Technology Alliance Program enables integrations with BeyondTrust Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions so that customers can maximize the value of their IT security investments,” says David Manks, the VP of strategic alliances at BeyondTrust.
The companies say this integration will offer customers various authentication options, including biometrics.
