BIO-key International, a provider of identity and access management (IAM) solutions powered by biometrics, has announced that the US General Services Agency (GSA), which provides centralized procurement for the federal government, has selected BIO-key’s PortalGuard IAM solution.
This is to deliver flexible, secure and compliant two-factor authentication for a public facing central communication application.
The Office of GSA Information Technology (OGIT) administers a publicly accessible electronic mailing list environment and has a security requirement to enforce two-factor authentication for users who log in to the Listserv web interface.
By leveraging the PortalGuard IAM platform and its extensive experience working with legacy software applications, the BIO-key team provided a more efficient enrolment and credential management process for the Listserv environment.
Listserv users will be prompted to enrol a second form of authentication using one of 15 authentication options supported by PortalGuard, including finger and voice biometrics, SMS PINs, tokens, mobile authenticators, push authentication and smart cards.
“We are honored to partner with the GSA to support their security initiative for this important public facing communication application,” said Mike DePasquale, Chairman and CEO, BIO-key. “Stringent security compliance requirements are mandatory for all government agencies because of the nature of the information and data that is entrusted to them. In this case, we enhanced their legacy Listserv application to provide secure, frictionless two-factor authentication with self-service capabilities for all end-users.”Click below to share this article
