Microlatch the leaders in the design, development and manufacture of stand-alone self-contained biometrics security solutions today signed a Strategic Partnership with Mi-Token Inc., the leader in easy to deploy enterprise authentication. The partnership will deliver Biometric products, integrated with the Mi-Token Banking & Enterprise Authentication solutions to the EMEA markets. This will be the first time that Government, Banking & Enterprise clients in EMEA will be able to access banking grade biometrics authentication solutions managed through the Mi-Token Enterprise management server.
John Nolan, Mi-Token VP EMEA said: "We are excited to work with Microlatch to bring advanced biometric tokens & technology to our clients. There is a large demand from companies and government agencies to migrate their legacy authentication solutions to a more open and secure platform and both Mi-Token and Microlatch make this transition securely and economically. The market is looking for new solutions due to recent password attacks and data assurance concerns and our combined solution will address the need for a more flexible and user-friendly authentication management solution."
Chris Burke, Managing Director of Microlatch says “this biometrics enterprise solution will be a first step into the future of online banking, where the user is authenticated through fingerprint comparison within the token, prior to the process completing. There will be no change to banking infrastructure and no change to existing account or OTP process, the security differential for Microlatch customers will be verification of the user from within the biometric token.”
“The Mi-Token suite takes security to another level of protection for the user without major change to existing practices or processes, therefore we see this step into the future as being consistent with market trends, such as Apple Inc, and other technology manufacturers implementing similar biometrics enhancements. Payments and banking will be upgraded to incorporate biometrics authentication within the mobile solutions or with associated peripheral devices” says Mr. Burke.
