FusionPipe Announces Latest QuikID™ Release with First in the Industry Proprietary BTLE for Improved Functionality & Compatibility
Vancouver, BC, February 21, 2017 — FusionPipe Software Solutions Inc. (“FusionPipe”), a Vancouver-based leader in providing world-class authentication & data security solutions for Enterprises, today announced that it has launched its latest major release of QuikID™ for Windows Authentication, including a major technology change to increase overall performance, authentication policy flexibility, functionality and compatibility.
FusionPipe’s latest release marks a significant breakthrough in convenient and secure authentication technology with a proprietary Bluetooth LE stack and built-in “splitter” functionality that allows the IT department to toggle between an “open” setting (QuikID™ used in conjunction with other Bluetooth peripherals) or “restricted” setting – in case the organization does not allow Bluetooth devices to be used by employees in the workplace. The new QuikID™ release allows for more flexibility when dealing with regulated environments such as manufacturing, first responders and healthcare, giving IT the opportunity to optimize the authentication options within the security framework mandated by the organization.
“We are the first in the authentication industry to provide this patented and custom designed software only proprietary technology ”, says David Snell, CEO and Chairman of FusionPipe. As we have leant from our customers, specific industries do not always allow the employees to use Bluetooth peripherals on the job, we decided to investigate this particular use case and came up with a solution that works. In addition, Bluetooth LE (“BTLE”) has different implementations depending on device manufacturer and releases, so the only way to ensure compatibility was to build a version ourselves. This new and improved version of QuikID™ with our BTLE stack was designed to be used along side the device’s native Bluetooth driver instead of replacing it, giving it a distinct end user advantage as there is now an option to use other Bluetooth peripherals such as a mouse, printer or wireless headset in conjunction with QuikID™’s wireless communications driver.”
