QGroup teams up with BioID to offer strong three-factor authentication

User experience is key success factor for strong authentication
The QTrust2go Card from QGroup, providing strong three-factor authentication for access to corporate data and applications, will be enhanced to include face recognition. (PresseBox) (Nürnberg, ) BioID GmbH, a provider of biometric recognition and identity management for online and mobile applications, and QGroup GmbH, a developer of high availability IT security solutions, announced today a technology cooperation in which BioID’s face recognition will be integrated into QGroup’s three-factor authentication solutions.

“Decades of experience has taught us that simplicity is absolutely essential to secure, highly available IT systems,” noted Thomas Blumenthal, Managing Director of QGroup. “BioID’s reliable face recognition fits in perfectly. It is incredibly simple for users and administrators, and will make our authentication solutions even more secure.”

QGroup’s QTrust solutions provide easy-to-use three-factor authentication designed for the needs of high security, high-availability applications. Their customers include many Fortune Global 500 companies.

BioID has developed multimodal biometric authentication technology, including face, iris and voice recognition, using standard webcams instead of special hardware. It can be delivered as a platform- and device-independent cloud service, allowing rapid implementation and minimal administration, or as software for several operating system platforms including Microsoft Windows, MacOS X and Linux.

“QGroup’s security-conscious customers are very demanding. They need to be sure their digital assets are protected from unauthorized access, and they select QGroup because they also understand that a more convenient user experience actually makes authentication more secure,” said Ho Chang, CEO of BioID. “The accuracy of our technology has been proven in high security government and enterprise environments. And what can be easier or more natural than looking at the camera?”
