Veridium Recognized as 2017 Emerging Security Vendor by CRN

Boston, MA July 24, 2017 – Veridium, a leader in identity access management solutions using biometrics as the primary authenticator, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Veridium to its 2017 Emerging Vendors list in the Security category. This list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers that are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.

Veridium was recognized for its leadership in developing strong authentication solutions. Veridium’s solutions eliminate the most vulnerable points of access – passwords, PINs, and tokens – by replacing them with secure and convenient biometrics. Veridium has three mainstay products: 4 Fingers TouchlessID, VeridiumID, and VeridiumAD. Powered by an unmatched legacy of IP and R&D, Veridium’s software increases security, improves convenience, and reduces fraud, all at a lower total cost of ownership than traditional multi factor authentication (MFA) solutions.

“This impressive group of technology supplier startups is already disrupting the status quo, aggressively creating and innovating to meet the ever-changing demands of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “CRN’s 2017 Emerging Vendors represent the next generation of IT change agents, producing a wide range of leading-edge products that solution providers should keep an eye on in the coming year and beyond.”

“We are honored to be named to CRN’s Emerging Vendors list this year,” said James Stickland, CEO, Veridium. “Data breaches and fraudulent transactions continue to be major a problem for organizations across industries. Our solutions help enterprises everywhere protect their most valuable information – their data – from getting into the wrong hands. We will continue to help organizations fight this battle with innovative solutions as the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve.”
