MicroStrategy Delivers Analytics With Apple Touch ID Support
MicroStrategy ships a biometrically secured analytics solution to the market with support for Apple Touch ID.MicroStrategy introduced a new platform integration with Apple Touch ID to deliver an analytics solution that enables developers to create Touch ID-secured documents and apps. The new integration enables developers to build biometrically secured analytics solutions. With Touch ID for analytics, MicroStrategy is looking to help organizations mobilize their enterprise information and mission-critical systems. Company officials said Touch ID for analytics builds on MicroStrategy’s existing security capabilities, a combination of device security, data security, authentication and authorization capabilities that provide a layered and effective approach to protecting sensitive data accessed by mobile business apps. “With MicroStrategy’s industrial-strength platform, our customers can feel confident that we’ve provided them with the tools to secure their most sensitive corporate data,” said Michael Saylor, founder, chairman and CEO of MicroStrategy, in a statement. “Analytics and data security really go hand in hand. It’s something we’ve always focused on and have increasingly invested in with the introduction of our Usher Identity Platform in recent years. Apple’s Touch ID technology is another way we can reduce any barriers our customers face in leveraging the transformative power of mobility.”
While mobile access to information is revolutionizing how people work, uncertainty about mobile security often deters organizations from making the leap into enterprise mobility. The perceived risk that sensitive information may become compromised is one reason organizations think twice about mobilizing their existing information, particularly mission-critical systems.
