IdentityX can be used to either enhance or replace existing access control for logical systems, whether they are physical computers, external internet sites, or internal corporate applications. Virtually anything that is conventionally protected with a simple username and either password or PIN can be made more mobile, convenient, and secure.
Our lives are full of usernames and passwords. They protect our computers at work and at home and grant access to commercial internet sites that we use for everyday purposes, including managing our money, making purchases, and accessing numerous and varied accounts. Many corporate systems allow remote access and login through VPN and have separate applications defined for critical functions such as expense reporting, time keeping, and health and benefits management. IdentityX electronic and biometric security systems can be leveraged for their convenience and mobility to either replace current passwords or enhance existing systems with additional security.
Enhancing existing logical access systems increases the system’s security in a convenient and cost effective way. Simply having IdentityX require possession of the registered phone will go a long way towards avoiding issues with lost or stolen passwords and PINs, while adding biometric authentication goes further to directly bind the individual to the access request. Replacing existing passwords with the IdentityX solution provides an added level of convenience, removing the need to remember (or insecurely write down) a countless passwords and PINs. This is especially true for access that is infrequently required, where the user is more likely to forget their password, such as yearly benefit registration.
Using your smart phone for local or remote access, IdentityX offers risk solutions and wireless security by empowering you to securely establish your identity through a combination of encryption, PIN entry, location-based technology, and biometrics such as voice and facial image matching.
