Crossmatch Press Release

Crossmatch to Showcase DigitalPersona Authentication at Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference (GISEC)

Crossmatch®, a globally-recognized leader in biometric identity management and secure authentication solutions, today announced it is attending and showcasing the company’s DigitalPersona® composite authentication solution at the Gulf Information Security Expo & Conference (GISEC) on  May 1-3 in Dubai, UAE.

The DigitalPersona software goes beyond two factor (2FA) and multifactor authentication (MFA) offerings by delivering risk-based authentication policies better able to adapt to dynamic threat environments and increasingly complex IT infrastructures, whether on-premises, in the cloud or some combination in between. Easily integrated into Microsoft Active Directory and platforms such as Office 365, DigitalPersona reduces the burden on the IT department.  And with a broad array of biometric, behavioral, mobile and traditional factors, it enhances the organization’s security profile while offering use case adaptability.

“Gulf state and Middle Eastern organizations have unique concerns regarding security, convenience and scalability that their current authentication solutions fail to address,” noted Richard Bechalany, Middle Eastern Regional Director for Crossmatch. “The DigitalPersona solution addresses these as well as the critical challenges of going beyond 2FA and MFA, providing complete security coverage, reducing the reliance on the user and offering rapid adaptability in an ever-changing threat environment.”

Crossmatch has a long history of providing identity management solutions to governments and enterprises in the Gulf region for a range of use cases.  Recently, the company’s Verifier Sentry biometric handheld was deployed by Saudi Arabian authorities to confirm Haji permits. The company maintains a regional office in Dubai.
