Sydney-based biometric identity start-up, Daltrey, has announced it’s launching an industry-first security solution that provides a unified biometric credential enabling authentication across all physical and logical access points.
Daltrey’s identity-defined security approach allows government and enterprise organisations to integrate biometrics as a viable, scalable authentication method that integrates with their existing technology, providing business leaders a means to solve their most pressing security, safety and compliance challenges in a cost-effective way.
Industry-first features of Daltrey’s biometric identity solution include:
- A robust identity establishment process that creates a verified biometric credential known as a DaltreyID. This can be done remotely by users or onsite with an operator either overseeing or managing the onboarding.
- An intelligent middleware platform that integrates with existing access management providers. This means for the first time ever, organisations can use a single credential to authenticate its users across both physical and logical access scenarios.
- Customisable biometric components including face, iris, voice and fingerprints that allow for adaptive authentication, customised to suit the risk level of all access scenarios.
- Identity management that can be either user- or enterprise-managed, with world-leading security, privacy and compliance practices in place.
“We have seen the emphasis on data security, authorisation and access management dramatically increase within government and other industry sectors such as healthcare, banking and transportation.” says Blair Crawford, co-founder and Managing Director, Daltrey.
“However, traditional authentication methods associated with authorisation and access is invariably clumsy, disconnected and can differ across different parts of an organisation.
“Multi-factor authentication is a start, but it doesn’t address the fact that the foundational component of a user’s ID is a username and password in a digital context, or an access card in a physical one; both methods posing undue risk and exposure from a regulatory compliance and security perspective.
“More critically, digital and physical ID convergence objectives are not being effectively addressed. Authenticating to a physical or logical system by way of the same means is an industry wide pain point and is a significantly underserved problem.
“Our vision is to eliminate credential theft by enabling workplaces where usernames, passwords, access cards and PIN numbers no longer exist. We bridge the gap between disparate physical and logical identity management practices and provide business leaders with the ability to manage who, what, when and where people access any location or application across their whole operation.”
