Identity-Bound Biometric authentication address shared workspaces to make accessing sensitive, private information easy and secure for bank employees. A single fingerprint scanner at each location provides a passwordless login experience - users do not need to carry or remember anything, like a password or token, and the credentials cannot be shared.

Single Sign-On (SSO) seamlessly provides access to all applications, including thick client applications. The SSO ConciergeTM eliminates the additional login and seamlessly passes credentials to thick client applications on the user's behalf, improving productivity for users and the IT team.

Self-service Password Reset (SSPR) reduces help desk calls by up to 95%, allowing education institutions to improve their cybersecurity at scale without introducing extra friction, allowing students to enjoy new apps and online services.

Identity-Bound Biometrics

BIO-key PortalGuard is the only IAM platform to offer more powerful authentication methods like Identity-Bound Biometrics (IBB). This approach to authentication establishes trust that is rooted in a person's biometric identity so you can verify the user - not just the device.

Solution Consolidation & Aggregation

By deploying disparate solutions that do not exist under a single security policy, it becomes unnecessarily expensive and difficult for IT teams to manage. With BIO-key PortalGuard, you can put existing security solutions under a single, unified IAM platform.

Flexible, Custom Pricing

Single, unified IDaaS solution costs are reduced as siloed solutions are consolidated and the need to buy and maintain on-premises infrastructure is reduced or eliminated. Our pricing structure is simple, and there are never any hidden or unexpected costs. With our one, affordable cost, you can pay up to 50% less than similar solutions.
