Last updated:

Transforms Apple Watch into a Digital Key to Secure and Unlock Applications, Workstations, or Physical Entryways

MicroStrategy today announced that MicroStrategy Usher is now available for Apple Watch. Enterprises deploying Usher will now be able to use Apple Watch as a secure digital key, enabling wearers to log into enterprise business systems, unlock devices, validate personal identity, and open physical entryways with a simple gesture or tap.

One of the first Apple Watch integrations directly addressing the needs of the enterprise, MicroStrategy Usher for Apple Watch leverages the unique features of the Apple Watch, including Glances, Notifications, and Force Touch, seamlessly enabling the new device to be used for a broad range of business security applications. The app is designed to detect a vast range of business systems, hardware and physical entryways as users approach. Users receive push notifications on their Apple Watch prompting them to unlock their workstation, log into a system, or open a doorway with a simple tap or gesture on the device.

Apple Watch is the ideal platform to replace the password, plastic card, and metal key,” said Michael Saylor, CEO, MicroStrategy Incorporated.

“By integrating Apple Watch, iPhone, and Touch ID with enterprise applications, resources, and business processes, Usher for Apple Watch brings a new level of convenience, capability, safety, and security to the marketplace.

Usher for Apple Watch is part of the MicroStrategy Usher platform, which launched in early 2015. MicroStrategy Usher is an enterprise-grade security solution that provides secure authentication for business processes and applications across the enterprise. The platform replaces traditional forms of identity such as IDs, passwords, and tokens with biometric mobile identity and multi-factor authentication, all from a single mobile app. Usher provides streamlined administrative capabilities that let organizations easily set up and enforce biometric security with geo-fencing, time-fencing, and Touch ID access on mobile devices.
