BIO-key International, an innovative provider of identity and access management (IAM) solutions powered by biometrics, today announced that it has partnered with Appsian, an ERP data security leader, to provide enhanced ERP system security to BIO-key's PortalGuard® solution, which will be delivered either as an IDaaS platform or an on-premise offering. The partnership provides robust security solutions to businesses seeking to enhance their ERP system security by implementing an IAM solution that delivers flexibility, scalability, time-to-value, and usability advantages. BIO-key will also be presenting at the upcoming PeopleSoft Innovation Summit on February 17th, 2021 to organizations seeking to provide secure access to their ERP systems and data.”Managing identity for legacy ERP applications like Oracle PeopleSoft can be challenging, especially when access is required beyond the firewall,” said Piyush Pandey, CEO of Appsian. “Our partnership with BIO-key provides those legacy ERP customers with a unique opportunity to seamlessly implement a comprehensive, modern IAM without adding any customizations to their applications or servers to their architecture.””Strengthening authentication to access mission-critical data while also providing the end-user with a frictionless experience is a big win for our customers,” said Mark Cochran, President of BIO-key – PortalGuard. “IT teams require flexible authentication solutions from vendors like BIO-key and Appsian to improve application security without sacrificing the end-user experience.”
