Product Details

DigitalPersona Altus is a multifactor authentication (MFA) solution which leverages an enterprise’s existing infrastructure to provide the exact authentication factors that fit its business needs and that works with local, hosted and cloudbased applications. Altus is clientserver based and supports VDIs including Citrix.

The Altus client creates a custom Citrix ICA Virtual Channel that redirects biometric fingerprint data from a fingerprint reader to the Citrix Server, where the Altus client running on the Citrix farm then uses the fingerprint data for authentication as though the reader was locally connected to the Citrix farm. The fingerprint data transmitted is significantly less than what would be used in sending the image itself and processing it on the server side. This solution can be used by VDIs on Windows PCs or thin clients running Linux or embedded Windows on the Citrix farm.

Features

  • Data redirection from a fingerprint reader to an Altus client installed on the Citrix server using a custom Citrix ICA Virtual Channel
