MADRID, Spain and WALL, N.J., Sept. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BIO-key International, Inc. (NASDAQ:BKYI), an innovative provider of workforce and customer identity and access management (IAM) solutions featuring Identity-Bound Biometrics (IBB), today announced that Swivel Secure Europe today deployed AuthControl Sentry to a Dutch-based multinational conglomerate ("Company") in the furniture and home accessories market that will allow their suppliers to have secure SSO access to legacy enterprise applications. For the Company, its suppliers and service providers are its most important partners for maintaining vital business operations and supply chain logistics, so ensuring seamless, secure access to key applications and data is mission critical for their business.
 

The BIO-key solution assisted the Company with implementing robust SSO capability combined with multifactor authentication (MFA) security that allows the users to select from up to 10 different authentication methods depending on the risk-based authentication rules, ensuring that the proper authentication is applied to each access request. Another important project requirement was securing access to the Company's enterprise SAP ERP environment, where access requests can be validated with MFA using a unique combination of authenticator factors that we call MFA+. The BIO-key security solution is currently in Phase 1 of deployment, and the Company plans to roll it out to its other locations worldwide and leverage it with other enterprise applications.

"We are glad to be selected by the Company to provide this innovative solution that will securely connect more of its supply chain logistic partners, strengthen their business processes, and improve overall partner efficiency. The Company has millions of customer transactions daily, and we are providing the access security to support that success." Alex Rocha, Managing Director, BIO-key EMEA. "BIO-key excels at providing its customers with fluid access to corporate systems and data without sacrificing the company's security."
