NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCO – May 18, 2021 – Veridium, a leading developer of frictionless, passwordless authentication solutions, and IGEL, provider of the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, today announced that Veridium has joined the IGEL Ready program as a technology partner. IGEL Ready is an ecosystem of cutting-edge hardware, software and peripheral solutions that have been verified for use with the IGEL OS to deliver a powerful, productive, and secure user experience.
As a validated solution in the security segment of the IGEL Ready program, VeridiumID delivers passwordless authentication for VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure), DaaS (Desktop as a Service) and cloud workspaces. It enables organizations to eliminate passwords and/or legacy OTP token technology for user authentication. This enhances security and user experience while also reducing operating costs. The software-only platform has a front-end mobile application available from public stores or as a software development kit (SDK) and enables a broad variety of explicit and implicit authenticators to meet all customer and regulatory requirements.
“Veridium is excited to join the active and growing community of IGEL Ready partners,” said Ismet Geri, Chief Executive Officer, Veridium. “Device authentication is a critical component to any security strategy and is particularly important at the endpoint – whether in the cloud, VDI or DaaS. By validating VeridiumID for use with IGEL OS-powered devices, we are helping to provide a simple, yet powerful layer of security to safeguard applications and data from growing cyber threats.”
“The future of work requires secure access to cloud workspaces from anywhere on any device,” said Jed Ayres, Chief Executive Officer, IGEL. “Logging into corporate resources needs to be done without friction and with supreme confidence.
