The need for convenient, secure IAM solutions has never been higher, with an increasing amount of critical work done online or remotely. Trust in who has access to what is paramount to building trust inside the government. In particular, government organizations at all levels are targets for threat actors to attempt to gain access to protected data. The ability to safeguard these systems needs to be matched by the ability of a diverse range of government employees, contractors, and the public to access information and systems securely. These new requirements have driven an unprecedented need for cybersecurity solutions like those offered by BIO-Key, especially in the government.
"The partnership between BIO-key and TD SYNNEX Public Sector will be beneficial in leveraging the channel to reach additional government organizations searching for cost-effective and extremely secure IAM solutions," said Fred Corsentino, Chief Revenue Officer at BIO-key.

We are excited to be working with TD SYNNEX Public Sector and even more excited about providing the U.S. public sector the best IAM solution in the market today."
