BIO-key Showcases Identity-Bound Biometrics and Phone-less, Token-less, Passwordless Authentication at Gartner IAM Summit March 20-23

GRAPEVINE, Texas and WALL, N.J., March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIO-key International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI), an innovative provider of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Identity-Bound Biometric (IBB) solutions, will showcase IAM innovations at the Gartner Identity and Access Management (IAM) Summit at the Gaylord Texan Hotel & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, for the second consecutive year. BIO-key will be available for meetings, Q&A sessions, and live demonstrations of its solutions, March 20-23rd at Booth 621.

Attendees are invited to stop by to discuss their IAM priorities and see live demonstrations of BIO-key’s solutions. Implementing multi-factor authentication (MFA) and the elimination of passwords continue to be top priorities for enterprises across all industries. BIO-key will highlight its award-winning PortalGuard® platform, including the ability to offer phone-less, token-less, and passwordless workflows with unique Identity-Bound Biometric (IBB) capabilities. Demonstrations will showcase PortalGuard’s support for a wide range of flexible authentication options and how IBB methods, such as a fingerprint scan, or palm scan or facial recognition using BIO-key’s MobileAuth™, allow secure desktop and web application login, while reducing the risk, inconvenience and high cost of traditional methods.

The Gartner Summit is an annual conference that brings together industry leaders and enterprise organizations to discuss the latest trends and challenges in the IAM business. This year's theme revolves around the concept that traditional IAM approaches are no longer adequate in today’s threat landscape. Keeping with the theme, BIO-key will meet with enterprises to discuss new approaches to secure the ever-expanding range of access scenarios for their employees, customers, and suppliers, where traditional authentication methods fail.

“From shared workstations to remote access and users who can't use phones or tokens, enterprises face a complex and ever-changing landscape of access requirements,” said Michael DePasquale, Chairman and CEO of BIO-key. “Traditional authentication methods are not sufficient in many scenarios, and enterprises must explore new solutions that can offer the flexibility to accommodate the needs of different users and various use cases, while maintaining the highest level of security. These challenges underscore the importance of new and ongoing discussions that we’ll have with attendees around the unique benefits of adding Identity-Bound Biometrics to their authentication, identity-first, and zero trust strategies.”
