Verizon expands availability of Verizon Universal Identity Services to Europe
Oct 15, 2013 (M2 EQUITYBITES via COMTEX) --
Verizon Enterprise Solutions announced today the availability of its Verizon Universal Identity Services, the company's next-generation, cloud-based identity platform, in Europe, effective immediately.
This platform, which was previously available only in the US, now also features new user-friendly features, including an updated mobile app, Quick Response code-enabled access and a simplified end-user interface, making identities easy to manage and use.
According to the company, Verizon Universal Identity Services uses multifactor authentication to verify users are who they say they are by combining an individual's username-password with a computing device that generates a one-time password or a biometric scan, such as fingerprint recognition. Once authenticated, users can securely access online content such as websites, corporate resources and even electronic medical records from their computer, smartphone or tablet.
Verizon's cloud-based identity services, an alternative to traditional solutions, provide an easier, faster, more flexible and secure way for organizations to implement two-factor authentication, the company said.
The Verizon identity platform is available on the iOS Android, Windows and BlackBerry operating systems. The platform also features legally binding digital signature capabilities, such as those required for electronic prescriptions, online tax filing and license renewals.
In addition, a new, simplified end-user interface offers administrators an enhanced dashboard with expanded security and operations reporting that help organizations address and demonstrate security compliance.
Verizon Universal Identity Services, launched in the US in 2010, is delivered from Verizon data centres to meet enterprise security, availability and reliability requirements.
Verizon Enterprise Solutions is a division of Verizon Communications Inc (NYSE:VZ)(Nasdaq: VZ).
