Safe-T Group Ltd. (NASDAQ:SFET) (TASE:SFET) has announced the availability of the first-ever biometric-based Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution.
The ZNTA solution was developed in a collaboration between the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Safe-T Data A.R Ltd., and ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB:IWSY), a provider of defense-grade biometric identification and authentication for access to data, products, services or facilities.

The company pointed out that since the beginning of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the way business got done in prior years has forever changed, with most employees then working in an office environment with remote staff being the exception instead of the rule. Employees connecting to the corporate network in the office were under control of the organization, fully trusted and broadly granted access with just a username and password.
Now offices are distributed and remote, with access to an organization’s data resources required from not only employees, but contractors, partners, and customers. This new office paradigm creates the need for different levels of trust across different users and connection types. Add in that software and services are now a mix of on-premises and cloud systems with the majority of access requests coming from remote, sometimes unknown, untrusted devices, and the complexity and risks of access control management are at unprecedented levels, Safe-T Group noted.
“To adequately safeguard corporate infrastructure in today’s dispersed work environment, companies require increased span across services, precise user identification, and a risk assessment of the connecting devices,” said Eitan Bremler, Safe-T Group co-founder and VP Corporate Development in a statement. “This is something way beyond the scope of current remote access and authentication solutions like VPNs and passwords provide.”
The joint solution between Safe-T’s ZoneZero and ImageWare Authenticate addresses all-access challenges with a simple and secure ZTNA solution. Before granting access, the solution collects and matches biometrics, either in cloud or on-premises, to ensure the user’s true identity. Once biometrically authenticated, the solution grants access on a need-to-know basis only while still providing users (managed and un-managed) fast and seamless access to the resources they need.
“With the new demands brought on by remote work, it has become clear that virtual private networks and passwords are no longer effective in securing access to data and services,” said Kristin Taylor, CEO and chair at ImageWare.
“The addition of biometric authentication to Zero Trust provides an additional layer of security through precise identification while also improving the user experience with quick, contactless authentication. Our joint solution brings best-of-breed in Zero Trust and biometrics for unparalleled access management security for today’s remote world.”
ImageWare Authenticate delivers precise user assurance through a rich suite of on-device and cloud-based biometrics such as a face or palm print, for fast, convenient access control with a level of security only biometric authentication can provide.
Safe-T’s ZoneZero changes the way organizations grant secure access to their services. It acts as a Perimeter Access Orchestration, or PAO, platform, providing central management of all secure access technologies and use cases for ZTNA.
Together, ImageWare Authenticate and Safe-T ZoneZero have established an unrivalled ZTNA solution, controlling who can have access to all corporate resources and how this access is granted. They said the result is a true user-assurance-first, secured-access-second approach: ImageWare Authenticate for biometric authentication and Safe-T ZoneZero for access to corporate services.
