Identity authenticator teams up with Microsoft, a developer of secure, mobile biometric identity authentication solutions has joined the Microsoft Partner Network.

Thanks to this, it has upgraded its Verified CloudConnect with the integration of its facial biometrics solution to Microsoft Office 365 and Azure via Active Directory Federation Services. Verified CloudConnect will now enable Microsoft Office 365 and Azure users to access strong multi-factor authentication.

The Verified CloudConnect solution leverages facial biometrics to remove the need of one-time passwords. Through this, it can bolster cybersecurity efforts and combat phishing, account takeovers and man-in-the-middle attacks.

Upon login with Microsoft credentials, Verified analyses a user-captured selfie in real-time to ensure it is the real user and not an imposter. At the same time, the technology securely binds that authentication session to a device, creating the perfect combination of “something you are” and “something you have” factors.

Its security safeguards an enterprise from various common cybersecurity threats, while lowering the hassle and costs of deploying legacy authentication hardware. CEO Tom Thimot said, “ is committed to delivering intuitive, integrated enterprise security solutions that secure company assets and resources.

“As a Microsoft Partner, we are further empowering enterprises to enhance control of their security infrastructure and provide an easier, more fortified authentication experience for their teams. On the heels of our recent deployment of CloudConnect to the Auth0 marketplace, we are excited that our new biometric integration with the Microsoft Office 365 and Azure platform will protect the data and IP of an even larger cohort of enterprises and professionals across the globe.”
