ImageWare GMI replaces unsecure, vulnerable usernames, passwords and pin-codes with voice, facial, palm, finger and iris recognition, among others. GMI brings U.S. government-hardened and tested high-end security to an increasingly mobile world. Messaged based verification is bundled with GMI, and is also available as a separate application, or service.

GoMobile Interactive is built upon the award winning IWS Biometric Engine (IWS BE), a SOA based server platform that enables advanced biometric data process and management with ESB connectivity. Key features of the IWS BE include:

Scalability: Enroll, identify & verify unlimited population sizes, Interoperability: Hardware & algorithm independent processing Easy: Future-proof, plug-and-play software development kits (SDK) Adaptable: Product modules that can be implemented together or individually Flexible: License and/or subscription service offering Compatible: Compatible with most biometric products
