TrustBuilder’s newest update grants mobile users rapid access via push-authentication and user-friendly finger print scan
TrustBuilder, the European Identity and Access Management (IAM) solution provider, has introduced the latest update to its flagship identity and access management tool, the TrustBuilder Identity Hub (TrustBuilder IDHub). The new features can be used to add simple user access and security to banking apps and payment services.
The TrustBuilder IDHub is a highly effective, user friendly and trustworthy IAM tool that combines attribute-based access control with cloud identity management.
The new version introduces wider support across the most recognised and trusted authentication protocols, while adding two new user friendly features for TrustBuilder’s mobile application, TrustBuilder for Mobile – push-authentication and fingerprint scan access.
From now on, the TrustBuilder IDHub can be accessed on a mobile device via a simple finger print scan. Considering mobile devices’ trend towards embedded fingerprint sensors, this update is designed to let users replace their often difficult to remember passwords with a simpler solution: their fingerprint.
With the new fingerprint scanning support, the IAM application is one of true two-factor authentication, combining something the user owns – the smartphone – with something the user is highly identifiable with – the fingerprint.
When a user tries to log onto a company’s application that is protected by the TrustBuilder IDHub, the user will be invited to activate the TrustBuilder for Mobile application. Once the application is activated, the user simply touches the fingerprint reader on the mobile device. This easy tap confirms the user’s authorization to login to the protected application – rapid, user-friendly, but nevertheless highly secure.
