Crossmatch®, a globally-recognized leader in biometric identity management and secure authentication solutions and Oxford Computer Group, today announced a strategic partnership to offer biometric identity solutions to Microsoft customers. Oxford Computer Group will be an authorized reseller offering Crossmatch’s state-of-the-art DigitalPersona® Composite Authentication software and support in addition to single finger readers to its Microsoft customer base.
Microsoft overwhelmingly dominates the end user operating system space worldwide and the partnership is anticipated to be a significant component of the defense against cybersecurity threats—especially given the increase in global breaches.
“The ‘breach-a-week’ global business culture is in desperate need of solutions that address both security and ease of use,” says Crossmatch Vice President of Enterprise Security Matthew Neuman. “Oxford Computer Group’s experience delivering complex security solutions within Microsoft environments is unparalleled.”
“Now with the inclusion of Crossmatch’s DigitalPersona Composite Authentication, customers will benefit from a solution that protects against the number one reason for security breaches – password compromise – using intelligent contextual and behavioral authentication to better protect digital assets,” Neuman noted.
Crossmatch’s Composite Authentication solution transcends 2FA and MFA offerings by delivering risk-based authentication policies better able to adapt to dynamic threat environments and increasingly complex IT environments whether on-premises, in the cloud or some combination in between.
“Oxford Computer Group is extremely pleased to partner with Crossmatch. Their DigitalPersona Composite Authentication solution integrates seamlessly with Active Directory and Microsoft’s cloud services to provide next-level security controls to our customers,” said Oxford Computer Group Vice President, West Region Andy Shell.
“Organizations facing complex security challenges, such as those in the healthcare, financial services and government industries, will be able to go beyond traditional multi-factor authentication methods with Crossmatch’s excellent solutions to better secure their identities and data,” Shell added.
