RSA Conference Recap

I’m back from the RSA conference and how exhausting. Understandable considering there were 17,000 people at the show—all focused on the security industry.

In case you didn’t see it, we made an announcement during RSA about our partnership with Upek, a biometrics company based in the Bay area. What I find exciting about this partnership is that it shows just how complimentary our solutions are with other authentication technologies. In a whitepaper we published over a year ago we showed a diagram of where identity verification fits in the puzzle and how it is central to other verification tools.

Verification Tools

Biometrics in an online environment falls into this sphere and requires a proofing solution because what good does it do to enroll someone’s fingerprints if the fingerprints aren’t those of the person he/she is claiming to be? This is why we decided to show the power of our two technologies working together through a joint demonstration.

Another observation from RSA is that there continues to be a lot of interest and discussion about age verification and social networks. If you recall, last year there was a panel session called Pandora’s Box discussing child safety and the Internet. Admittedly this year I didn’t attend the sessions as much since we were an exhibitor, but based on the questions and discussions on the show floor, it is clear people are concerned and also aware of the Internet Safety Technical Task Force.
