ImageWare SystemsImageWare Systems Inc, a provider of mobile and cloud-based identity verification solutions, has launched GoVerifyID, a biometric authentication solution for the macOS operating system.

ImageWare has incorporated its new anti-spoofing technology, Biointellic into GoVerifyID, which was earlier only available to Windows and Linux operating systems users, and will now also be available to macOS users, according to a statement.

ImageWare’s launch of a biometric solution for macOS is expected to enable more businesses to utilize identity as a security measure. With GoVerifyID, IT management can incorporate Macs in their network security and avoid data breaches.

Biointellic uses the latest in artificial intelligence, including neural networks and machine learning, to provide liveness detection, thus halting presentation attacks. Its user experiences do not require any special hardware and offer improved user adoption and lowered abandonment rates.

“With the growing number of enterprises using macOS, we wanted to ensure that they have access to not only biometric security but a zero-friction, anti-spoofing enhancement as well. In the past, if enterprises wanted to use Apple devices using macOS, they were either exposed or they couldn’t use them at all. GoVerifyID for macOS gives them the opportunity to not have to compromise anymore.” Jim Miller, CEO, ImageWare Systems said.

GoVerifyID’s offerings include multiple biometric modalities such as the face, palm and voice recognition, on-device biometrics, and non-biometric, two-factor authentication including a six-digit PIN and question verification.

ImageWare Systems provides two-factor, biometric, and multi-factor authentication solutions for enterprises. The company delivers biometrics as an interactive and cloud-based solution. It is headquartered in San Diego, California, with offices in Oregon, Canada, Mexico, and Japan.
