Revolutionize your workplace by unifying physical and logical access

The BlockID app manages access control, both physical and logical, while making sure employees only access what they truly have the right to access, whether it is a highly secure data center or computer network and system files.

 

 


Current physical and logical access solutions fall way below par. 

 

Can you truly know who's using an access card?

Access cards are utterly unreliable. Here is a reality check: First, access cards can be cloned. Second, access cards can be lost or stolen and used before the loss or theft is reported. And third, there are employees, who don’t hesitate to loan their access card to another person, including a coworker. 

Some organizations have installed biometric readers, so unauthorized personnel cannot access highly secure areas, like data centers for example. This is indeed a pertinent way of countering the sharing of access cards among employees. But the problem lies in the fact that many edge biometric readers can be defeated (i.e. by copying fingerprint imprints) and they are expensive and invasive to install. 

Finally, passwordless solutions have combined access card and biometric traits into one app for smartphones. However, the levels of identity and authentication assurance by which their solutions abide fail to reach the highest degrees per the NIST 800-63-3 guidelines.   

2FA, MFA and most passwordless solutions fail to protect.

2FA, MFA, and most passwordless solutions do address the danger of having privileged users share their credentials with their unauthorized fellow workers. However, they remain subject to hacking.

Indeed, 2FA and MFA solutions are not foolproof. At the end of the day, any hacker can steal a username, a password, and a mobile number stored inside a company’s centralized system.

Most passwordless solutions that leverage biometrics can mitigate some of the risks incurred by 2FA and MFA solutions. However, the problem is that the level of biometrics offered is falsifiable (fingerprints can be copied, facial traits can be spoofed) and employees' data is stored unencrypted in centralized systems, a cyber criminal's favorite place to hack. 

Ultimately, to store users' data (including their biometrics) in a centralized database and unencrypted creates such a level of vulnerability that a data breach is bound to happen at some point.


1 Kosmos BlockID: Unifying accesses while providing the highest levels of identity and authentication assurances.

 

  • The utilization of advanced biometrics allows you to secure the identity of your employees who need to authenticate and access your systems and internal web resources. No more password required. A hacker cannot reproduce and, therefore, compromise the analysis and result of a liveness test, for example. The fear of having one's fingerprints copied, face spoofed or voice replicated is gone. Live ID brings this extra level of authentication that cannot be compromised. 
  • Implement biometric capabilities at your readers without having to install additional access control hardware.
  • Liveness test to enter the most secure areas through mantraps, for example.
  • BlockID is 100% contact-free. Minimal friction. 
  • Brings employees the highest levels of identity and authentication assurance per the NIST 800-63-3 guidelines, or IAL3 and AAL3.
  • Leverage the BlockID Private Blockchain Ecosystem. Our virtually uncompromisable system that initiates peer-to-peer transactions while ensuring the immutability of the data stored encrypted is the answer to risks associated with systems hacking and centralized credential databases.
  • Be sure at all times that your employees are who they say they are at all times.
  • Be sure your employees access those facilities and systems they have the right to access at all times.

Data Storage and The BlockID Private Blockchain Ecosystem.

Our private Blockchain-based data storage architecture promotes trust between your organization and your employees for all access to your systems and internal applications. 

Leveraging the BlockID Private Blockchain Ecosystem entails storing employees' biometric information in a virtually incorruptible system to ensure they are who they say they are at all times throughout the process. Employees’ data stored in our distributed ledger aren’t subjected to data breaches. 

The immutability of a distributed ledger is leveraged to record service provider-customer interactions. The document can never be modified, leaving an auditing trail, and therefore creating trust between all parties involved.
