Protect Your Critical Data with 2FA and Beyond

Thursday, August 17th, 2017 11:00AM PST A substantial increase in the number of recent data breaches highlights the vulnerability of passwords, as compromised passwords are used in the vast majority of such breaches. Many organizations are adopting traditional two-factor authentication (2FA) methods, such as a confirmation via email or SMS. This second factor provides additional security; however, does it really solve the problem? ImageWare® Systems’ GoVerifyID® provides the ultimate security with better user experience, lower cost, and the flexibility to address all of your authentication needs. Join ImageWare for a 45-minute live discussion to understand why two-factor authentication is important, how you can quickly and easily deploy an enterprise solution, how to meet your regulatory needs such as PCI, HIPPA, PSD2 etc., and how to prepare your security infrastructure for the future. After registering, you will receive an email confirmation containing information about joining the webinar. We look forward to talking with you!

SecuritySolutionsWatch.com Interview With Jim Miller

With data breaches happening every day and causing damage to your brand, tangible economic loss, and termination of employment for executive management charged with oversight, enhancing security without compromising user experience is a priority for today’s organizations. Multi-modal biometrics for user authentication handles this requirement and that’s what ImageWare does. We have invested substantial time and effort into making the implementation of biometric security simple, quick, and cost-efficient.  Being a pioneer in biometrics, with several decades of experience, ImageWare has built its brand through deployments in law enforcement applications, later migrating to secure biometric credentialing, and more recently, to authentication in the cloud using smart mobile devices. At the heart of all of our product offerings is the patented IWS Biometric Engine® (BE), which provides an ultra-scalable, real-time, multi-modal biometric enrollment and matching database specifically built for biometrics. The BE supports a dozen different biometric modalities today and adding new modalities is simple and straight forward. As we say, “we secure your future,” meaning that we not only satisfy your current security requirements, but we also secure your investment as new biometric technology becomes available.  We treat biometrics as “plug and play,” so you can take advantage of new advancements with no loss to your current investment.
