Much has been made of ImageWare Systems’ approach to strong authentication in the cloud. The company has been preaching a situational attitude towards biometrics, and its multi-modal Biometric Engine is at the heart of what ImageWare provides: the biometrics that you need as you need them. The hardware agnostic philosophy behind the company’s offerings has made a big splash, at this year’s Mobile World Congress, the company was recognized by Envisioneering for innovation and design (see article below) at the conference’s Showstoppers.
Today, ImageWare and Fujitsu announced the global availability of a biometrics-as-a-service (BaaS) solution the runs on the former’s cloud infrastructure. It’s a pay-as-you-go and plug’n’play approach to biometric deployment.
