WALL, N.J., July 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BIO-key International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI), an innovative provider of identity and access management (IAM) solutions powered by biometrics, today announced that Fore Aero, a manufacturer of flight safety and support parts for national defense and aerospace markets, has selected BIO-key’s PortalGuard IAM platform to address their secure authentication requirements. The customer found PortalGuard to be the most secure, flexible, user friendly, and cost-effective solution of the several they had vetted.
As a government contractor, Fore Aero was seeking a multifactor authentication solution to enhance security and meet federal requirements. The core requirement was to integrate a flexible and secure multifactor authentication solution to support its Windows 10 workstations. Additionally, Fore Aero needed to authenticate users on its manufacturing floor, which has no internet access, ruling out vendor applications that require users to receive push authentication messages on their smartphone.
To solve this issue throughout the department, Fore Aero had deployed hard tokens, which along with OTP, cards, password, and biometrics are all supported within the PortalGuard IAM platform. This broad range of multifactor support provides flexibility to easily adjust authentication methods to meet specific user access scenarios across a variety of use cases within a customer enterprise.
“Our R&D Engineering team takes great pride in developing IAM solutions that meet the unique security challenges of every customer environment,” stated Mark Cochran,
