Biometric Secure Single Sign-On (SSO) Software

for Banks and the Financial Services Industry


Eliminate Passwords and Increase Security in your Bank
The increasing number of enterprise security data security breaches combined with the pressure on
the financial services industry to implement methods of password management, identity
management, data and network security, and two factor authentication has never been stronger.

The sharing or theft of user passwords still remains the number one reason that corporate data is
compromised. We help to solve this problem by allowing the financial services industry the ability to
implement a centralized password management repository for single sign-on and secure access to
internal applications.

What is Single Sign-On?
A cost-effective, server-based back-end that offers enterprise-wide identity and password
management as well as data protection that is easily deployed and managed by your IT department.

With a single solution that supports strong authentication techniques, banks can protect corporate
and personal data while ensuring industry mandated compliance with governmental regulations.
