Single sign-on

July 2007 Cyber Security

As computers are getting increasingly mobile and better connected, threats to data security are increasing in number as well as complexity.

Business customers, for whom data security can have a direct impact on the health of their business, are becoming increasingly concerned. Bioscrypt understands that security needs must be addressed holistically.

VeriSoft is a client-server based enterprise single sign-on/network logon solution with robust multifactor authentication capabilities including world leading support for fingerprint biometrics.

The application provides the following functionality:

Secure desktop logon

VeriSoft supports logon to Windows using multifactor authentication including any combination of fingerprint biometrics, smartcard, contactless and proximity smartcards, as well as password. A centralised policy determines the user's required credentials. With VeriSoft Access Manager Server, administrators can create a unique security policy that requires their chosen authentication method, including alternatives to passwords when logging on to Microsoft Windows.

Multifactor authentication

VeriSoft supports multifactor user authentication, including fingerprint biometrics, user passwords, smartcards, proximity cards and virtual tokens. This robust feature allows for multiple authentication methods to be used in any combination when assigning access privileges to applications and services.

Enterprise single sign-on

VeriSoft Single Sign On stores usernames and passwords for multiple applications and automatically enters logon credentials when a registered application is accessed. Users no longer have to memorise the growing number of passwords for Web-based and Microsoft Windows applications. VeriSoft is essentially a user identity vault that makes accessing protected applications more secure and convenient.

Automated password management

Password generation can be completed behind the scenes and is transparent to end-users. The result is a highly secure and easy-to-use identity and access management solution designed to authenticate users quickly and efficiently while securing sensitive organisational data.

Key reference customers

Bioscrypt has licensed the VeriSoft to several OEM partners. As one example the VeriSoft technology is deployed as Credentials Manager for ProtectTools by HP with every commercial HP Notebook, selected HP Consumer notebooks and other OEM customers. Through these relationships, the VeriSoft is now in use by more than 6 million people worldwide.
