Passwordless authentication secured and simplified with authID’s facial biometric, multi-factor authentication
DENVER, CO, July 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- : authID (Nasdaq: AUID), a leading provider of secure identity authentication solutions, and ABM (NYSE: ABM), one of the world's largest providers of facility services and solutions, with over 100,000 employees, announced today that they have signed an agreement to deploy authID’s identity authentication solutions to optimize facilities’ operations and secure employee access across shared devices. authID’s strong biometric authentication services will allow ABM to deploy next-generation security, while delivering a cost-effective and intuitive user authentication experience to critical workforce applications.
Organizations that deploy shared workforce devices battle constant attacks by cybercriminals who prey on passwords, legacy authentication, and employee error. Corporate IT teams must address significant shared device authentication challenges including difficult user experiences, shared passwords, hardware tokens for MFA, and ultimately ensuring that an employee is who they say they are when accessing enterprise resources. Next-generation authentication that offers a highly secure, cost-effective, and streamlined user experience across a range of shared workstations, laptops and mobile devices is critical to accelerating a zero-trust security framework.
authID’s patented identity platform and its streamlined, cloud-based facial biometric authentication will help reinforce ABM’s enterprise security with passwordless login across shared corporate devices. ABM employees, deployed across diverse customer environments including aviation, education, healthcare, and hospitality, will be able to quickly authenticate to vital ABM corporate applications, with a simple facial biometric capture, while authID seamlessly protects against attacks.
authID will help ABM reduce operational complexities, while delivering an easy user authentication experience—without the added costs or challenges of requiring employees to carry physical tokens or rely on secondary personal mobile devices. Further, authID will provide off-line authentication to allow secure systems access when internet connectivity is unavailable, a difficult challenge given the diverse physical environments in which ABM employees are deployed.
“We are excited to partner with ABM to deliver the best possible, passwordless employee authentication experience,” said Rhon Daguro, CEO of authID. “We’ve dedicated our entire mission to providing the fastest and easiest passwordless security on the market. Our platform ensures legitimate users access shared devices and enterprise systems as quickly as possible, helping them perform their jobs securely, day after day, and enabling ABM to operate as efficiently as possible, with the highest levels of security.”
“At ABM, we are focused on elevating the client and team member experience through technology and data,” said Stephanie Franklin-Thomas, Chief Information Security Officer of ABM. “We selected authID for its combination of security, seamless user experience, shared device support and cost-effective delivery. Their innovative biometric authentication solutions offer the ultimate in passwordless security, accuracy, and speed.”
