SA’s leading enterprise technology management company, is pleased to announce it has been appointed as an official reseller partner for Veridium, a leading developer of user-centric authentication solutions.

As a reseller partner, Blue Turtle will integrate Veridium’s biometric technology into its digital transformation go-to-market offerings. Veridium’s technology solutions allow organisations to embed biometrics, including face, fingerprint and 4 Fingers TouchlessID, into enterprise environments, eliminating the need for passwords and tokens. The partnership will enable customers to unlock the power of real-time customer biometric authentication and on-boarding.

“Fast, secure, reliable and low-maintenance access control has become paramount for most organisations,” said Justin Arnoldi, Head of Digital Transformation at Blue Turtle Technologies. “The use of access cards, PINs, passwords and tokens is not always reliable, which is why customers are starting to look to multi-factor biometrics as an alternative to more traditional access control, in a bid to prevent fraudulent access to premises, accounts or data.”

“As demand increases dramatically for better enterprise security, there is no question that organisations are looking for a more iron-clad security platform, using biometric authentication,” said James Stickland, CEO, Veridium. “We’re thrilled about our partnership with Blue Turtle Technologies, which will continue to help organisations in Africa increase security and productivity for all employees, without adding any friction to the experience.”

The company’s current product portfolio includes the VeridiumID platform that allows organisations to easily embed biometrics including face, fingerprint, 4 Fingers TouchlessID and behavioural biometrics, all within the company’s Authenticator App. The company also has several pre-built business adaptors that integrate with Microsoft Active Directory and Azure, Citrix StoreFront, NetScaler, ShareFile and Cloud Services, RADIUS, SAML, OpenID and WSO2.

“Working with Veridium, we will provide customer support throughout the entire Veridium value chain, from acquisition through to implementation and support, ensuring both physical and data security along the way,” said Arnoldi.

Digital transformation has become a critical element of a successful e-commerce business. Blue Turtle’s mission is to help clients integrate meaningful solutions to help them engage, transact, gain insight and more accurately predict customer behaviour. The ability to remotely identify a new prospective customer via biometrics provides core “know your customer” capabilities, and having this validated by a trusted third party provides true remote on-boarding.

The benefits of Veridium’s biometric authentication platform will be made available immediately to new and existing clients of Blue Turtle.
