Samsung SDS America Showcases Biometric Authentication Technologies at CA World '17
Samsung SDS America today announced that its leading biometric authentication solution, Samsung SDS Nexsign™, will be showcased within an updated API management platform from CA Technologies, establishing a strategic partnership between the two companies to advance the incorporation of biometric authentication solutions for use in the development and integration of new mobile applications.
The need for greater security levels emerge as more companies develop mobile and IoT applications quickly and with more efficiency, especially in solutions and platforms that include the transfer of sensitive data such as financial or banking information. These authentication technologies need to be easily integrated into the API management process, possess exceptional levels of accuracy, and enable an exceptional user experience.
Nexsign utilizes sophisticated biometric authentication technologies so that user identities can be confirmed through biological information, such as a fingerprint, facial recognition, iris scan or voice identification, to complete transactions across many different mediums, particularly in mobile technologies. Nexsign is the first biometric authentication solution to be made available for use by CA Mobile API Gateway, a product within the CA API Management portfolio.
“Enterprises across many industries rely on CA Technologies for the right capabilities to help them integrate systems to deliver better user experiences and leverage new opportunities, and many of these integrations require additional layers of security outside of personal identification numbers (PINs) and passwords,” said Richard Lobovsky, VP of Enterprise Solutions at Samsung SDS America. “We at Samsung SDS are excited to partner with CA Technologies by having Nexsign enabled to operate within CA’s industry leading API management and mobile security solutions, incorporating the use of biometric information to authenticate users and create the opportunity for more secure transactions.”
A demonstration of how Nexsign will operate within the CA Mobile API Gateway will be exhibited at CA World ‘17®* at booth #102 via a sample mobile banking application built by CA Technologies.
“Through close collaboration with our customers, CA Technologies recognized their needs to integrate more frictionless security layers across mobile app and API management technologies, and we considered a number of solutions to incorporate into the launch of our new CA Mobile API Gateway products,” said Kapil Lohia, Vice President at CA Technologies. “We decided to partner with Samsung SDS based on the sophistication of their Nexsign technology, which incorporates a wide variety of biometrics to authenticate user information and complements very well with our platform offerings.”
Analysts, media and all CA World ’17 attendees are invited to listen to insights from Richard Lobovsky, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions for Samsung SDS America, during the following panel discussion “Multi-faceted Security Options in Our Mobile World”:
• Thursday, November 16, 2:30 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. PT in the DevOps: APIs and Microservices Theater 1.
• Panel also include executives from CA Technologies and other leading companies.
• Topics for discussion: how companies are adopting stronger authentication practices, what current authentication methodologies exist in the enterprise and at the mobile device (i.e., multi-factor authentication) level, and what it will take for companies to upgrade their infrastructure.
