Avatier Corporation announced at the Gartner Identity & Access Management Summit 2016 in Las Vegas, NV the release of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Biometrics for its Password Management solution.
Password Management is now more secure than ever with the introduction of MFA Biometrics technology. Users can authenticate their identity and securely unlock account, reset and synchronize their passwords by using the following:
- Biometric Face for facial recognition
- Biometric Voice for voice identification
- Biometric Fingerprint for fingerprint scanning
Password Management administrators can incorporate one of these methods into their setup, or they can take advantage of Biometric Your Choice to give users the option of authenticating through any of these three methods. Without programming using only checkboxes for easy configuration or with a powerful REST API, this new MFA Biometric solution can be implemented as part of a workflow that requires multiple authentication steps. Additional authentication options that Password Management currently offers include: Secure questions and answers, One Time Password (OTP) email, OTP SMS, Phone, and RSA.
Avatier has partnered with ImageWare Systems, Inc (OTCQB: IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions that works well in tandem with Avatier’s products. “It’s good to see Avatier integrate our industry leading biometric MFA product, GoVerify ID, into their leading Identity Governance and Administration technology, says Jim Miller, CEO of ImageWare, Systems, Inc. “By partnering with Avatier we open the door to truly secure and safe identity management.”
This latest upgrade to Password Management keeps Avatier at the forefront of IAM solutions, offers users a more customized experience, and increases protection against identity theft and other security threats. With the successful rollout of MFA Biometrics to Password Management, Avatier now looks to expand this new feature to the other products in the Avatier Identity Anywhere.
