14 September 2018 15:53 GMT

Biometric identity management solutions firm ImageWare has announced that its GoVerifyID solution has been certified for use with the ForgeRock Identity Platform. 

The ForgeRock Trust Network Technology Program enables its partner community to integrate complementary technologies to extend and derive additional value with ForgeRock. ImageWare is a Principal Partner in the program, which is the top designation. ForgeRock and ImageWare’s technical staff collaborated closely to provide a seamless integration between GoVerifyID and the ForgeRock Identity Platform, and the integration has been validated as ForgeRock certified.

This integration enables ForgeRock customers to very easily add ImageWare’s Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), and biometric multi-modal authentication to their ForgeRock systems. Users can simply take a selfie, speak a phrase, swipe their finger, or show their palm to provide the ultimate in user assurance and convenience. Organizations can also elect to use phone-as-a-token (i.e. secure push notification) with a simple Yes/No or a PIN, as a simple two- factor authentication method.

ImageWare’s GoVerifyID-ForgeRock integration is now available on the ForgeRock Trust Network Marketplace along with supporting documentation and implementation information to enable easier integration of this solution.

Ben Goodman, Vice President, Global Strategy and Innovation at ForgeRock said that, “As the concept of digital identity has grown beyond employees, citizens and customers, to include services, devices and IoT connected ‘things’, ForgeRock’s unique identity platform has become pervasive across industries worldwide. ImageWare’s GoVerifyID is now a valued member of the ForgeRock Trust Network offering a full range of two-factor, multi-factor and biometric authentication methods which provide flexibility for users. And ImageWare has a proven history of delivering highly-scalable, real-time systems as is required by our large customers.”

Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems stated, “Integrating GoVerifyID with ForgeRock’s identity platform brings our ultra-scalable and flexible 2FA, MFA and biometric authentication solution to this leading customer-oriented IAM solution. We look forward to working with ForgeRock to develop joint business development and go-to-market plans including co-marketing and targeted co-selling to ForgeRock’s extensive list of world class partners with large numbers of consumer users.”
