SAN DIEGO, Dec. 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ImageWare Systems, Inc. (ImageWare or IWS) (OTCQB:IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, today announced that GoVerifyID for IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM) is now available on the IBM Security App Exchange.
GoVerifyID seamlessly integrates with IBM identity and access management technology to provide a flexible, end-to-end, multi-modal, biometric security solution for all ISAM authentication processes. ImageWare’s GoVerifyID, combined with ISAM, allows users to swipe a fingerprint, take a selfie, speak a passphrase, show their palm, or enter a PIN on their mobile devices to authenticate for any ISAM managed resource. The enterprise-ready integration package deploys automatically into existing ISAM environments and has been validated by IBM Security.
This new integration is freely available to the security community through IBM Security App Exchange, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies. As identity-related attacks persist as a leading cause of major security breaches, collaborative development amongst the security community will help organizations adapt quickly and speed innovation in the fight against cybercrime.
GoVerifyID integrates with IBM Security Access Manager, which helps companies provide secure and simplified access to web, mobile, and cloud technologies through a single integrated platform. This new integration allows ImageWare and IBM customers to replace or augment passwords with biometrics to provide an improved user experience, increased user identity trust, and greater security. By eliminating passwords or providing biometric multi-factor authentication (MFA), the risk of a data breach is reduced.
“The major data breaches in the headlines over the past few months remind us of the severe business consequences of such incidents. The ImageWare GoVerifyID product mitigates the risk of these devastating thefts that can bankrupt a company and cause untold pain for their partners and customers,” said Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare. “We are excited to have placed our GoVerifyID for ISAM solution on the IBM Security App Exchange to make it readily available to existing IBM customers. We look forward to helping enterprises quickly and easily deploy this integration to provide the ultimate in security and ease of use for their ISAM environments.”
