Mobile Authentication

With 67% of users saying they have “no trust” in current mobile authentication methods and record numbers of passwords being stolen everyday, it is time to re-think mobile security. Customers need an easy, simple, and secure way for mobile authentication, while companies seek risk-appropriate mobile device authentication methods that balance assurance and accountability against total cost of ownership and user experience.

ImageWare® Systems, Inc. utilizes a mobile device’s existing capacity for voice and facial recognition to provide mobile biometric authentication for applications. Using our innovative GoCloudID® and GoMobile Interactive® products, ImageWare can turn your smartphone into a mobile authentication platform that is secured anonymously in the cloud. This ensures that your customers’ credentials are safe, even if their device is stolen; you are secure knowing that your mobile application is secured with the most effective mobile device authentication method available.

ImageWare Systems can secure your mobile payment application with a device’s own capacity to photograph and accept voice commands with our easy-to-use, pay-as-you-go mobile authentication platform, GoMobile Interactive. Not only does GoMobile Interactive provide mobile device authentication for your application using multi-modal biometrics, but in the event your customer’s account is compromised through a lost card or hacked account, GoMobile Interactive can transform into a 2-way communication platform.

Law Enforcement

IWS Law Enforcement software is a scalable, easy-to-use digital booking, identification, and investigative solution accessible via PC, Web, wireless, and data sharing platforms. IWS Law Enforcement database software components listed below cover the full range of Law Enforcement booking and investigation.

 

ImageWare’s Law Enforcement database software creates records and captures images (facial, fingerprint, iris, SMT, etc.) as well as biographic text data. This information may easily be synchronized with existing agency’s JMS, RMS, or Livescan systems so redundant data entry is either limited or eliminated.  Officers can use this law enforcement records management sofware to perform detailed searches that allow them to create unique reports and print ID badges or wristbands.
The investigative module of ImageWare Law Enforcement software provides for the creation of non-prejudicial electronic mug books and photo lineups. In-depth searches allow for the display of similar images, either in a printed format or displayed directly from a computer screen, for viewing by a witness.
The Web version of the ImageWare Law Enforcement database software allows a user with credentials to search, view, and print record information/images from any computer that may access the intranet. The creation and printing of electronic mug books and photo lineups are also included.
EPI Designer allows each agency to create/revise report formats or id card/wristband templates for use with the data and images stored within the ImageWare® database. Using this tool, users may encode barcodes and ghost images as well as include any data elements or images that have been captured by the system.

Facial recognition adds significant power to the suspect identification process. This option searches through the database for matches to a suspect probe image. All potential matches to the image are displayed quickly and in order of confidence. Facial recognition searches may be performed via the Investigative or Law Enforcement Web client.

Fact

Upwards of 85% of hospitals today allow BYOD (bring your own device)1. Innovation in the mobile industry promises great opportunities for healthcare organizations, enabling improved employee productivity, enhanced patient outcomes and satisfaction, and creation of new revenue streams. In order to capitalize on these opportunities, IT organizations in healthcare will have to manage increased investment requests in mobility, while contending with tight budgets.

Challenge

Mobility for healthcare range from devices, applications, content, and email/messaging. With this growing connectedness in healthcare, comes the growing likelihood of phishing attacks and data breaches. Last year 80% of security breaches took place not through hacking or virus attacks, but through system infiltration facilitated by the use of a known password2. Passwords becoming compromised is unavoidable.

BYOD:
Countless entry points into healthcare systems

Passwords are highly vulnerable
and a cornerstone of system security today

Solution

Multi-Modal (face, fingerprint, voice, etc.) Biometric Authentication not only solves the twisted puzzle that is today’s complex IT security conundrum, it improves it for everyone involved — making it easier and more secure than ever before.

Your biometrics (your voice, face, fingerprint, etc,) are like an unforgettable password you always have access to. You become the password. You no longer need to remember your passwords, answers to your password reset questions, or carry a hardware device like a smartcard. Complex passwords? Now you can forget about those too.

With nearly 90% of healthcare providers3 reporting data breaches, costing an average of $2.1 million per hospital, isn’t it about time you invested in better security? Talk to ImageWare today and learn just how simple and cost effective it is to secure with biometrics.
