San Diego, California – May 10, 2016 – ImageWare Systems, Inc. (ImageWare or IWS) (OTCQB: IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, will offer GoVerifyID® as a SaaS offering to provide a biometric authentication service on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
IWS will launch this end-to-end enterprise-ready service with an integration of TransUnion’s (NYSE: TRU) IDManager, a fraud detection and authentication identity decisioning solution. ImageWare said it has several customers already in the process of entering into contracts as resellers of the new service.

ImageWare’s solution provides a full range of user identity and transaction verification services, including identity-proofing, cloud provisioning, on-device enrollment, fast verification, and seamless integration into existing security workflows. Companies, of all sizes, will be able to integrate the product into nearly any existing security solution. Organizations can also choose from various types of biometrics, such as face, voice or fingerprint, to create a multi-factor authentication solution for identity and transaction verification.
ImageWare Systems CEO Jim Miller says it best: “The first organizations to provide innovative solutions to their customers gain and retain the majority of market share. Biometric authentication secures customer transactions and identities, while protecting organizations from data breaches, lowering security costs, and improving productivity. It’s the greatest disruptive technology on the scene today.”
