SecuGen has announced the exclusive integration of SecuGen fingerprint readers with realtime North America’s bioLock software.
The Check ID in SAP fraud prevention and accountability technology provided in realtime’s bioLock software is known to significantly increase SAP security by protecting any function in SAP with a second biometric factor. Security is of paramount importance because 77% of all global business transactions touch a SAP system, which is used by most global Fortune 500 companies and governments.
As an example, bioLock can trigger the bioLock security check when a high-volume financial transfer is attempted. Also, bioLock can check the identity of one or multiple authorised users (if using dual controls) to limit the risk of corruption and collusion. A log file records all functions and the uniquely identifiable users who executed those functions. Therefore, if a user is trying to execute a protected function that they are not allowed to access, an automated message can instantly inform the security team that a potential fraud attempt is in progress.
Most fraud cases start with a borrowed password and an attempted account takeover. realtime’s granular biometric control centre is installed inside SAP to protect SAP from the inside out. BioLock can protect not only the logon to SAP but, more importantly, any SAP transaction or function like saving or pressing the enter key. Fingerprints can help to undeniably connect a transaction with the user’s true identity. So now, for example, you can prove who created the purchase order or issued that multi-million-dollar wire transfer.
realtime’s bioLock has been tested to work with some of SecuGen’s best-selling fingerprint readers, including Hamster Pro 20, Hamster Pro 10 and Hamster Pro Duo SC/PIV. Each of these readers are FBI-certified for image quality and are used by commercial firms and governments around the world. SecuGen has designed these readers to be accurate, rugged and affordable making them ideal for large deployments.
“Our first bioLock technology was certified by SAP 20 years ago,” added Thomas Neudenberger, chief operating officer of realtime North America. “When it became time to build a brand-new fingerprint client technology from scratch, we chose SecuGen and built a client software that is exclusively compatible with SecuGen fingerprint readers.”
Neudenberger continued, “With bioLock reseller partners in all continents, we had to integrate a high-quality fingerprint sensor that was globally available at a reasonable cost. SecuGen checked all the boxes. Certified for bioLock for 15 years, SecuGen was our recommended choice for fingerprint re-authentication with bioLock.”
