“With the surge in high profile data breaches recently, are user names and passwords the best way to ensure the people logging into corporate networks are who they say they are?

“The hackers have found a way to impersonate you and me,” said Jim Miller, chief executive of ImageWare. “If I hack your password, and I am remotely accessing your company’s network, as far as they know, I am you with the way security is conducted today.”
