BioPassword unveiled BioPassword Enterprise Edition 3.0, a multi-factor authentication solution optimized for Windows AD and Citrix environments
March 26, 2007
SEATTLE -- BioPassword, Inc., the leader in software-only strong authentication, today unveiled BioPassword® Enterprise Edition 3.0, the industry’s only multi-factor authentication solution optimized for Windows AD and Citrix environments. Through added technical partnerships and integrations, Enterprise Edition 3.0 extends BioPassword’s strong authentication with new form factors, expands support for remote access, and now delivers an added layer of security for server based computing environments.
BioPassword Enterprise Edition provides the easiest-to-use and most cost-effective multi-factor authentication solution on the market by authenticating the user not the device—at less than one third the cost of competing token-based solutions. Enterprise Edition 3.0 adds an additional layer of knowledge-based authentication (KBA) to further strengthen the authentication solution by reducing the risk of false acceptances and increase authentication accuracy. The KBA factor allows companies to dial up security as desired without worrying about denying access to legitimate users. “The addition of knowledge-based authentication to Enterprise Edition 3.0 further strengthens BioPassword’s value as a software-only keystroke biometric solution,” said Jared Pfost, vice president of security and product strategy at BioPassword. “As enterprise computing and security demands evolve, BioPassword will continue to innovate and offer strong authentication solutions for new form factors, use cases and environments used by our customers and partners.” "Businesses have always desired an additional factor of authentication to augment usernames and passwords. However, tokens, smartcards, or other biometrics have had problems with market penetration because of end-user acceptance and the operational costs of deployment", said Eric Ogren, security analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. "A biometric approach based on a person's typing cadence can enhance the security of passwords without requiring the overhead of additional hardware or software authentication infrastructures. Organizations can reduce the risk of fraudulent sign-ons to their networks and business applications." BioPassword Inc.
