Authasas Adds the Lumidigm Advantage to Its Advanced Authentication Platform

Solution delivers reliable, convenient, secure, and compliant authentication at all points of access across the enterprise

ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Lumidigm today announced that enterprises can now authenticate users with Lumidigm multispectral imaging biometrics as part of an integrated authentication platform from Authasas. With the addition of Lumidigm's unique capabilities, the Authasas Advanced Authentication® solution is more secure, more convenient, and strongly spoof-resistant. This combined solution delivers the high levels of security, accountability and compliance that organizations are demanding with the single-touch convenience they expect.

"Because of Lumidigm's success in bringing higher levels of performance to border crossings, thousands upon thousands of ATMs and even the gates of major amusement parks, we felt it was important to bring the power of their technology to our customers," emphasizes Reiner van der Drift, Authasas CEO. "Together we provide a very powerful combination of authentication methods, seamlessly delivered at all points of access, to replace the fragmented array of point solutions that is regrettably the common, makeshift response to today's complex requirements."

"With our large-scale successes in the banking and healthcare industries, we know our fingerprint sensors offer convenience and security wherever they are deployed," says Phil Scarfo, Lumidigm Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing. "Today, in partnership with Authasas, we are expanding our no-compromises approach into comprehensive authentication solutions where multispectral imaging will play an important role in streamlining compliant access for large enterprises requiring seamless transactional authentication."

The Authasas Advanced Authentication platform lets an enterprise optimize authentication for every transaction by balancing the right level of certainty based on "who" is requesting access with the right level of convenience for the actual user, resulting in a secure, compliant transaction. This flexible, scalable approach meets the size and complexity requirements of any enterprise with authentication methods such as multispectral imaging biometrics, smart cards, NFC, cell phone OTP tokens, USB authenticators and user ID/passwords integrated with a wide variety of SSO and identity management vendors such as NetIQ/Novell, HID ActivIdentity, Oracle, Computer Associates and HealthCast.

Both companies will showcase the platform at the Biometrics 2012 Exhibition to be held in London October 30-31. Authasas will be in Stand NCEP while Lumidigm will exhibit in Stand F200.
