Our Process

  • What We Do

    Internet of Things (IoT) goes beyond automating and orchestrating household functions (i.e. Temperature, Sound, Light) and friendly home devices that listen to everything we say. At BNS UEP, we work with the following verticals (Architectural, Energy, Multi-Media, Entertainment, Financial, Healthcare, Start Ups, Real Estate, Smart Cities) in customizing and designing visually and aesthetically appealing layouts for IoT devices, the architectural blueprint, and engineering of an end to end IoT solution.

  • How We Do It

    By understanding the organizational structure and cultural environment, this enables a collective, collaborative approach for identifying the current and mapping to the target state. Whereas, an end to end IoT Lifecyle becomes defined and attained based on business goals and objectives, creative and marketing initiatives, end user experience, and securing the IoT devices and operational processes through Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Risk Management.

  • Why It Matters

    Rather than approaching IoT as a shiny device that performs unparalleled automation and orchestration of functions and processes, BNS UEP’s IoT Lifecycle takes into consideration and accounts for all variables. This includes customizing, right sizing, and balancing out your creative and aesthetical needs with ultimate and optimal performance and security. By taking an enterprise architecture risk based approach, we ensure that all of the IoT contributing factors and inter-dependencies (i.e. location, placement, secure communication) have been taken into consideration. This translates to greater visibility in identifying risks prior to implementing an IoT solution. As a result, this provides enhanced end user experience through integrating technological comfort and energy efficiency, sustainable and scalable environments conducive to the environment (i.e. spatial awareness), culture and human necessity and the facilitation of responsive interfaces within a sophisticated and unified network.

Biometrics Security Management

The co-mingling of personal and professional (corporate) applications has increased the risk and likelihood of passwords being lost, forgotten, stolen, and exposed due to brute force attacks. As a result, biometric technologies such as facial, voice, fingerprint, and palm recognition continue to emerge as securely viable, operationally efficient, and cost-effective solutions.

  • Utilize Biometrics for Access and Authentication
  • Improve ROI by eliminating Passwords and Shared Secrets
  • Reduce the likelihood of a Data Breach by protecting the identities

Use Cases and Challenges

Results and Benefits

Costs are becoming increasingly expensive with password resets. On average this ranges from $35-50 per password reset.

Biometrics reduces costs and provides a better ROI by eliminating the need for password resets.

Complexities and constraints associated with limited personnel due to budget and finding proper skill sets for managing and monitoring password vaults.

Password-less Management is a secure, centralized repository with automated responses for self service password resets through the use of Biometrics.

Silos have been created with Identity and Password Management technologies due to Cloud and SaaS sprawl. This has led to a lack of visibility and monitoring for potential threats to critical assets and intellectual property.

Implementation and ongoing administration becomes seamless and fully integrated with existing Identity technologies such as MFA and PAM. Whereas, monitoring for identity and credential theft becomes instantaneously detected, quarantined, and remediated.

Password-less management seems to be a utopian idea with little to no security. This makes it challenging to convince and prove the security and operational effectiveness.

Through the use of Biometrics, cryptographic keys are generated upon user initiation. These keys are associated with the endpoint and user identity. A service lookup is performed for either access validated or denied.

Our Process

  • What We Do

    With the ever evolving migration to the cloud, organizations are reconsidering how they manage passwords, password resets, enhance end user experience, and protect themselves against social engineering and brute force attacks. Since there are a multitude of performance and security variables, BNS UEP provides organizations an architectural blueprint and engineering services for Biometrics.

  • How We Do It

    Our mantra is to simplify and migrate from the often difficult and complex password management lifecycle (monitor, detect, respond) to passwordless management. This is accomplished by utilizing Biometrics and by baselining and modeling a subset of individual users, user groups, and endpoints. Eventually, the rollout and onboarding process accounts and encompasses for all identities and endpoints.

  • Why It Matters

    Biometrics and password-less management reduces the costs and security complexities and challenges associated  with managing and administering password resets, privileged access, end user experience, operational efficiencies, and securing critical assets. According to the 2019 Verizon Cyber-Security Report, Privileged Misuse and Web Application attacks accounts for the Top 3 Data Breach Patterns in every industry. Therefore, by utilizing Bio-Metrics with MFA and an Identity Provider this will reduce your attack surface and the likelihood of losing critical assets, user identities, credit card information, patient healthcare records, and even worse the inability to pay employees and staff due to credentials and payment systems being compromised.
