Biometric authentication


Increase data security with biometric authentication

As security threats continue to evolve and industry and government security regulations grow ever more strict, many organizations are choosing to implement biometric authentication to protect data and help comply with regulatory demands. Of the broad variety of multifactor options, biometric authentication provides strong authentication and user convenience. Biometric authentication is highly reliable because users authenticate with something that is uniquely theirs - their fingerprints. Users enroll one or more fingerprints via a scanner. Thereafter, when logging in, the user scans their finger and if they have the rights, are simply and easily authenticated and can access their desktop, network and applications - all with a touch of their finger.

Imprivata OneSign makes implementing a biometric authentication solution, as part of a multifactor authentication system, or on its own, easy,affordable and highly effective. For organizations seeking a user authentication and identity access management solution that simplifies the use of fingerprint biometrics and multifactor authentication, Imprivata is the answer.
