ImageWare(R) Systems Brings IDaaS to the IBM Cloud Platform

With a Few Clicks, Developers and Businesses Can Add Biometric Security to Their IBM BlueMix Applications

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) ("ImageWare" or "IWS"), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has formed a partnership with IBM that brings the power of IWS' patented, multi-modal biometrics user authentication and cloud-based identity management platform to the IBM Cloud Platform, code name: BlueMix.

IBM BlueMix customers can now leverage ImageWare's Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS), a cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management and user authentication platform, to easily provide user authentication solutions that meet their specific business needs. IBM clients can rapidly deploy IWS solutions when building applications in IBM BlueMix, which may include out-of-band authentication, mobile biometrics, mobile payment, desktop security, patient engagement, and more.

ImageWare Systems fundamentally changes the way businesses build biometric authentication by bringing it into the realm of mobile technology and the cloud. A key component is IWS' GoCloudID™, a patented cloud-based biometric IDaaS platform that manages access to biometric enrollment and verification. The IWS system, in addition to being algorithm and hardware agnostic, enables plug-n-play and can be deployed globally as an enterprise end-to-end or modular solution. GoCloudID also includes a software development kit (SDK), which enables rapid integration into existing company programs and applications. With the SDK, GoCloudID can be implemented in a matter of hours rather than days or weeks.

"Worldwide mobile device payments are expected to reach $400 billion by 2015, with more and more mobile devices being designed with biometric features," said Jim Miller, CEO of ImageWare Systems. "It is critical we work with leading technology companies, like IBM, to effectively and comprehensively address identity and access management security challenges facing businesses and consumers in the new big-data, smart mobile world. For more than a decade, we have been working in a variety of large and demanding environments. With IBM, we have a partner who delivers world-class cloud services for public, on-premise and private infrastructure platforms."
