BIO-key Launches Channel Alliance Partner Program for Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) Security Solutions

Wall Township, New Jersey, UNITED STATES

WALL, N.J., Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIO-key International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI), an innovative provider of biometric authentication and security solutions, today announced that the company has launched a Channel Alliance Partner (CAP) program.  The program is designed for Managed Service Providers (MSP’s), Security Integrators, and VAR’s who specialize in providing security solutions to their customers. 

The CAP program will enable partners to represent BIO-key’s complete line of biometric authentication solutions, including BIO-key’s ID Director for Windows which operates with Microsoft Active Directory to deliver biometric Single Sign-on (SSO) or Multi-factor authentication (MFA) across the organization.  The suite of partner solutions also includes ID Director for SAML (biometric authentication into SAML enabled apps) and BIO-key’s complete line of compact fingerprint scanners that have been tested and qualified by Microsoft to support Windows Hello and Windows 10.

Fred Corsentino, BIO-key’s Chief Revenue Officer said, “we are excited to offer a BIO-key program with incentives for channel partners who sell integrated security solutions.  Partners will be able to add new opportunities to their pipeline with expanded, higher-margin product offerings.  Meanwhile, we expect this program to extend BIO-key’s sales reach within the market, particularly as the need for convenient and reliable multi-factor security grows. 

“For example, CyberPeak Solutions is a Florida based partner that helps organizations plan, build, optimize and implement cyber security solutions.  Recently, in seeking a security solution that goes beyond common two-factor systems, they chose BIO-key’s robust multi-factor SSO and MFA solution, including BIO-key’s ID Director and fingerprint scanners.” 

Travis Abrams CISSP CISM, Sr. Security Architect added, “with continued credential theft and advanced attacks on our clients, BIO-key allows Cyberpeak to provide customers with a flexible, best of breed multi-factor solution.  BIO-key helps our customers ensure they meet compliance requirements and proper diligence in protecting data and providing secure access to systems.  This is done in a user-friendly manner with low impact to our current business processes.”
