Crossmatch Releases Enhanced DigitalPersona Altus Advanced Authentication Functionality

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., June 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Crossmatch™, a leading provider of multi-factor identity management and authentication solutions, today announced enhanced functionality of its DigitalPersona® Altus strong, multi-factor authentication solution.  The enhancements build on the native flexibility and ease of use of the DigitalPersona Altus platform and provide expanded mobile credential capabilities and biometric reader compatibility.

In today's environment of increasing cyber-attacks and data breaches, where the impact can have far-reaching consequences and costs can quickly escalate, traditional authentication methods are under fire.  The inherent weakness in knowledge-based and credential-based authentication is the human factor.  The more complex the security policy, the less likely it is to be followed by users.  Passwords are easily shared, written down or forgotten.  It is commonplace to use the same password for multiple applications and weak passwords derived for convenience are rapidly "cracked."

"DigitalPersona Altus is a strong, multi-factor authentication solution based on a secure architecture that is proven and trusted," noted Rich Agostinelli, Crossmatch CEO.  "Altus integrates with legacy infrastructure and easily enables the multi-factor approach of something you know (password, PIN, OTP), something you have (token, card) and something you are (biometric), providing IT managers and security professionals a way to harness the benefits of various factor combinations based on risk needs."

The ability to combine factors delivers a stronger authentication protocol over traditional single- or two-factor solutions.  Long and strong passwords can be deployed without the risk of circumvention due to the convenience of biometrics.  Also, with biometrics CSOs and CIOs have the ability to strengthen their security protocol with a "proof of presence."

The DigitalPersona Altus solution provides a seamless migration path for existing DigitalPersona Pro customers who are considering enhancing their authentication approach.  To learn more about DigitalPersona Altus and the benefits of advanced authentication, please visit
