- Supports identity federation for seamless operations across
multiple IT environments
- Standards-based identity and access management
- End-to-end security, policydriven access control, nonrepudiation, strong audit trails with biometrics, event logging and reporting for security and compliance
- Simplifies Deployment of Strong Authentication
Consistency and Ease of Use
BiObex offers consistent, advanced visual setup and management tools regardless of the biometric methods required. This ensures easier training, enrollment, administration and maintenance tasks throughout the use of the product. For end-users, biometric authentication appears as the primary login (and can be integrated with single sign-on products), or prompts the user for biometric identification at the appropriate application level. An additional feature is internationalization support for overseas implementations.
Authenticated Identity Management System
Authenticated Identity Management System (AIMS) extends the power of logical biometric authentication through seamless integration with leading Identity Management software. AC Technology leverages Sun Microsystems Identity Management Suite, including Java System Access Manager to provide an identity and access management (I&AM) infrastructure that enables organizations to manage secure access to business applications.
BiObex AIMS provides all of the benefits of a unified framework for standards-based authentication and policy-driven authorization for securely delivering web-based applications and services as well as addresses compliance with government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPPA. The solution delivers biometric-enabled single sign-on (SSO), role-based access control (RBAC), federated identity management, identity provisioning and real-time auditing capabilities.
Reduces exposure to risk
Eliminate the temptation for users to write down passwords or create simple, guessable static credentials. Create strong password policies that don’t require less secure password sharing or synchronization methods.
Large Scale Deployment
A robust offering to any customer managing a large scale deployment, Authenticated Identity Management delivers stronger multi-factor authentication capabilities for business portals, web-based and enterprise applications and is a key element to securing any enterprise. Access Manager is the industry-first commercially available federated identity management solution that supports Liberty Alliance Phase II and SAML 1.1 specifications.
