With BlockID, the next generation of contact-free authentication solution, employees access securely all the apps they need to conduct business and increase your bottom-line, while reaching IAL3 and AAL3 levels per the NIST 800-63-3 guidelines.
Still, you've got to love the convenience...
On average, enterprises use at least 200 applications. This is why single sign-on service providers like Okta are extremely convenient. SSO authentication enables employees to authenticate multiple applications and websites by logging in only once, using one set of login credentials.
SSO service providers ease the burden of keying login credentials to each system individually. It reduces the time needed for logins so employees can use their time on more important tasks. And they make new account creation and logins easier and faster.
... If you're ready to face the consequences!
What would happen if anyone were to get a hold of that single set of credentials? Of course, all other accounts linked to that very same set of credentials would also get compromised. And, as we already know, passwords can be stolen, fingerprints can be copied, so what would the outcome be? The attacker would have access to all applications and data for which the compromised user has permissions.
A crucial point that needs to be addressed is that SSO authentication has a centralized server. A hacker would only need to penetrate a single point of attack to gain access any other platforms or websites relying on SSO.
BlockID is the next generation contact-free authentication solution powered by advanced biometrics and Blockchain technology. Your workforce enrolls identity and authenticates with the highest levels of assurance per the NIST 800-63-3 guidelines, or IAL3 and AAL3.

Our private Blockchain-based data storage architecture promotes trust between your organization and your employees for all accesses 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.
