Thomson Reuters to implement Samsung biometric authentication

Samsung has signed an agreement with Thomson Reuters to implement its SDS Nexsign biometric authentication solution, into several of Thomson Reuters mobile and web-based applications.

The companies completed a PoC earlier this year, and Thomson Reuters is now deploying Nexsign into production across additional applications in their portfolio, according to the companies. While the PoC activities focused on regional mobile and web-based applications, Thomson Reuters will now begin to integrate biometric authentication capabilities into some of its flagship products.

Thomson Reuters has also enabled several of their mobile applications with Samsung Knox security platform.
