ImageWare Systems Partners With Telos Corporation to Provide Biometric Authentication SaaS Solution

Partnership Allows Telos to Deliver ImageWare's GoVerifyID Integrated With the HPE Aruba ClearPass Solution

SAN DIEGO, CA and ASHBURN, VA--(Marketwired - Jun 13, 2016) - ImageWare Systems, Inc. (ImageWare or IWS) (OTCQB: IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has licensed its GoVerifyID® product to Telos Corporation for use with HPE Aruba ClearPass. Telos, a leading provider of continuous security solutions and services for the world's most security-conscious enterprises, is a leading ClearPass reseller to both the U.S. federal government and commercial organizations.

ImageWare's GoVerifyID is a mobile biometric user authentication service that verifies a user's identity prior to granting them access to applications, systems or networks. IWS has been offering this solution on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) on-demand cloud platform. Recently, ImageWare and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) jointly developed an integration of GoVerifyID with ClearPass, a leading network access management solution that manages over 65 million end-points. The product is an enterprise-ready, turnkey, biometric authentication Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution.

As a result of the partnership announced today, Telos will become a reseller of GoVerifyID, offer HPE Aruba ClearPass integrated with GoVerifyID, and provide and manage an instance of a multi-tenant GoVerifyID system on AWS for their customers.

In addition, Telos will provide the integrated solution via Telos Ghost™, a private cloud offering anonymous mobile voice, video, network and web access.

"At Telos, we strive to provide the highest-grade security solutions that reduce organizations' exposure to risk," said John B. Wood, Chairman and CEO of Telos. "With ImageWare's GoVerifyID SaaS offering, we can provide our customers in the public and commercial sectors the most secure, flexible and scalable user biometric authentication solution on the market, strengthening our commitment to secure people, systems and information."

The GoVerifyID is enterprise-ready for quick deployment, and the pay-as-you-go, scale-as-you-need offering gives customers the flexibility to set up their own biometric solutions without upfront infrastructure costs. 

Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare, stated: "Telos aligns with our mission of securing the world by providing IT security to organizations with the highest level of concerns, such as the DoD and intelligence community. Empowering Telos to provide GoVerifyID on AWS, as well as their private and secure Telos Ghost cloud, enables them to provide our multi-modal biometric user authentication service to the broadest range of customers."
