SUNNYVALE, Calif. - December 16, 2013 (www.investorideas.com newswire) As the biometric market landscape evolves, Fujitsu and ImageWare Systems (OTCQB:IWSY) continue to deliver leading cloud-based biometric identity management solutions and services that address the needs of companies in the financial services, retail, healthcare and manufacturing sectors. This cloud based biometric platform is designed to provide these industries with an agnostic approach relative to various modalities such as voice, facial, iris, and fingerprinting applications.
In the past, biometric-enabled solutions entailed complex development processes, where projects typically took one year or longer to implement, and companies were required to make major upfront investments in hardware and software. Today, Fujitsu is collaborating with ImageWare Systems, a developer of identity-based, credential management solutions driven by biometric technology, to enable support for more than 50 biometric devices while instantaneously responding to different types of modalities.
Along with ImageWare, Fujitsu is transforming the market with its cloud-based identity platform, or "biometrics as a service," through quick deployment that lowers costs and permits customers to choose and blend modalities to develop the best use case for their particular organization and requirements, permitting rapid integration with existing business intelligence and systems.
"We continue to collaborate with ImageWare because we see a growing need among our customers to securely identify and authenticate data that is important for enterprise businesses, while also addressing IT demands leveraging easily-deployed, scalable, cloud-based solutions," said David Berry, executive vice president, Infrastructure Services at Fujitsu. "We are in a unique position to work with established and emerging markets to define and diversify how biometric solutions and services are utilized --- whether it's preventing fraud at financial institutions or using voice recognition via mobile devices to investigate criminal activity."
ImageWare Systems supports a dozen different biometric models via its patented biometric engine. The company delivers its biometric technology through the Fujitsu interactive cloud-based service and provides authentication using the latest range of smart mobile devices, a key area of growth for the technology market.
"ImageWare Systems was founded more than a decade ago focusing on developing innovative, patented-protected technology to allow private and public organizations to deploy configurable and modular multi-modal biometric based identity and authentication management solutions," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems. "By partnering with Fujitsu, we are focused on helping global enterprises and service providers succeed in providing value to their business and customers with the next generation of cloud-based Identification management, poised to save businesses multi billions of dollars on a yearly basis, especially as we see transactions shift to mobile devices which are expected to exceed the world population in 2014."
