Veridium Wins Mass Technology Leadership Award

VeridiumAD was Named “Innovative Tech of the Year: Security”

Boston, MA – September 15, 2017 –  Veridium, a leader in “strong authentication” solutions using biometrics instead of passwords, PINs, and tokens, announced today that the company’s VeridiumAD solution was named “Innovative Tech of the Year: Security” at the 20th Annual Mass Technology Leadership Awards Gala on September 14. The Mass Technology Leadership Awards – hosted by the Mass Technology Leadership Council, Massachusetts’ largest technology trade association – celebrate the people and companies shaping the Massachusetts technology economy.

Veridium was honored for VeridiumAD, an enterprise solution that adds biometric authentication to Microsoft Active Directory environments. VeridiumAD increases security, streamlines login processes, and reduces the costs and lost productivity caused by stolen or forgotten tokens and passwords. It can be deployed to eliminate traditional passwords altogether, or to replace expensive tokens by using biometrics as a second factor.

“I am still humbled after 20 years of recognizing the leaders and innovators that make up the Massachusetts tech sector,” said MassTLC CEO Tom Hopcroft. “We celebrate the dedication and accomplishments of Veridium as a model for those who follow in their footsteps. The importance of these contributions cannot be overstated as they are shaping our future in real time.”

“We are so pleased to be among the impressive list of Mass TLC Leadership Awards recipients,” said James Stickland, CEO, Veridium. “Boston has such a strong security pedigree that being chosen as a winner in this category is especially validating.”
