Strong biometrics and integration of other authentication methods is VeriSoft's main focus. This product features a fingerprint scanner for biometrics, but is also capable of managing user passwords, smart cards, proximity cards and virtual tokens. VeriSoft Single Sign On is exactly what it says it is. This product, aside from securing workstation logon via a fingerprint, allows users to setup single sign-on for applications and websites.
We found this product very easy to use. Both the server and client were installed with easy setup wizards that took just minutes to go through. The server has a management console for easy administration of users, policies, and authentication methods.
Once the client is set up, a user is guided through a simple registration process and enrollment is complete. On the client, there is also a small configuration tool that can be launched from the tray, where the user can set their own specific single sign-on applications or websites quickly and easily.
This product performed very well throughout our testing. The integration with Active Directory is seamless, and we did not have to reconfigure or change anything. The administration console takes over for the Active Directory users and computers console, and all administration can be done directly from there.
There is also a silent deployment feature to launch the clients via group policy, which makes installing across the enterprise fast and straightforward.
Documentation for this product consists of a large administrator's guide in a PDF document. The guide contains all aspects of the program, from initial deployment and installation through to managing policies and users. This guide is very well organised and easy to read, with many screenshots and clear step-by- step instructions.
Support for this tool is offered both by phone and email. There is also a support section on the website with downloads, documentation, FAQs and enrollment tips.
At a price of £1,211 for 50 users, this product is excellent value for money. It combines biometrics and other authentication methods in one easy-to-manage and simple-to-use deployment.
