i-Sprint Innovations (i-Sprint) is a world-leading solution provider of cybersecurity that was established in 2000. It has since established itself as one of the top Identity, Credential and Access Management (ICAM) solutions worldwide.
i-Sprint’s solutions manage and protect data, transactions and assets across the four major IT forces – Cloud, Social, Mobile, and Information. These solutions incorporate the latest mobility, biometrics, cloud and identification technologies in the most effective and efficient manner to build trust and reinforce identity assurance.
Tenacious Leadership i-Sprint’s journey has been anything but easy. Not only did it have to contend with funding issues like any other fledgling company, its early years were also marked by difficulties caused by the worldwide financial crisis and the truly unprecedented complications that manifested with the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) epidemic.
It is a testament to the fortitude and dedication of the company’s founders, Dutch Ng (currently the CEO) and Albert Ching (the CTO and Vice Chairman), that i-Sprint weathered the storm as well as it did, and emerged from crises beyond its control stronger than ever.
Dutch and Albert forged ahead with their plans to revolutionize the world of cybersecurity and credentials management with the creation in 2002 of their patented solution, AccessMatrix Universal Authentication Server (UAS).
AccessMatrix gives companies the freedom to deploy various authentication methods from different vendors but manage it under one holistic platform. i-Sprint continues to build a suite of identity access management solutions around its patented technology. They are designed to deliver effective authentication and identity management to secure multiple application delivery environments based on a common security platform.
In 2015, it introduced “The Force of IdentityPlus”, an initiative to drive productivity through digital identity and the Identity of Things (IDoT). IdentityPlus is designed to build trust and identity assurance among individuals and organizations and, thus, accelerate and extend the ‘Circle of Trust’.
i-Sprint believes in creating value beyond the necessary or the obvious. Its intellectual property and patents are designed to exceed global financial services requirements; they not only meet the most stringent security requirements for any internet and mobile platform today, but are resistant to changes in the foreseeable future.
The company’s digital identity security offerings include adaptive authentication (biometrics, multifactor authentication and more), single sign-on services, end-to-end encryption (E2EE) authentication and data protection for transactions. Using these tools, clients can regulate and monitor access to the web as well as to mobile and cloud-based applications.
i-Sprint’s IDoT product offerings include next-gen anticounterfeiting, track and trace, and interactive abilities that help companies build consumer trust, improve brand protection, and personalize customer engagement while providing business intelligence.
