Veridium has announced a new mobile app enabling biometric authentication in the enterprise.Veridium Launches Mobile Biometric Authentication App

Called the Veridium Authenticator App, it leverages the imaging capabilities of a standard smartphone camera to apply facial recognition and fingerprint recognition via Veridium’s 4 Fingers TouchlessID technology, which can scan four fingerprints from a single image. The system can also use the embedded fingerprint scanners that are now so prevalent across contemporary smartphones as another authentication mechanism.

In a statement announcing the app, Veridium said it allows enterprise organizations to “benefit from a frictionless solution for end users, while increasing productivity by reducing calls to the help desk and lost time due to password resets or lost or damaged tokens.” The company also emphasized the app’s compatibility with popular enterprise platforms, asserting that it can be used as a primary or secondary authentication mechanism with Microsoft Active Directory, Citrix StoreFront, NetScaler, and ShareFile.

The Veridium Authenticator App arrives after Veridium upgraded its 4 Fingers TouchlessID technology last autumn with a liveness detection capability and the ability to export scans for comparison against fingerprints from traditional scanners, such as those contained in government databases. The app is now available for iOS and Android.
