WALL, N.J., March 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BIO-key
International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI), an innovative provider of identity and access management (IAM) solutions powered by biometrics, today announced its PortalGuard IDaaS has been recognized as one of five finalists for 2021 SC Media’s Trust Award in the Best Authentication Technology category. The Trust Award finalists were selected by a panel of expert judges who assessed
products delivering enhanced security for end-users or devices by managing credentials for access to an authenticator or authentication server.
PortalGuard streamlines secure connections between people and the cloud applications they use to get things done. PortalGuard IDaaS is a comprehensive SaaS-based IAM platform that delivers seamless
multi-directory integration, federated IDP for single sign-on, adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), plus self-service password reset for enterprise workforces, supply chain partners and
customers. PortalGuard supports over 15 authentication methods that let customers consolidate multiple authentication solutions and secure access for users connecting from anywhere using any
device. One of those factors is BIO-key biometrics, which strongly authenticates roving users without phones or hardware tokens for industries like retail, call centers, manufacturing, and
healthcare, or where unauthorized account sharing and social engineering remains undeterred by mainstream MFA.
