Werum IT Solutions announces strategic partnership with Nymi to develop authentication solutions

May 29, 2018 – Werum IT Solutions, a supplier of manufacturing execution systems (MES) and manufacturing IT solutions for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries, and the authentication expert Nymi have entered a strategic partnership. As part of their collaboration, the two companies are developing joint solutions for the smart authentication of employees on the pharmaceutical shop floor.

Nymi offers wearable, biometric authentication solutions that are backed by Nymi’s Enterprise Management (NEM) console for security and privacy. The Nymi Band is a multi-factor biometrically authenticated wearable that is worn by shop floor workers to perform day-to-day authentication tasks, such as digital signatures within an MES. Once setup, the user has to put on the Nymi Band and authenticate using their fingerprint. The device will then remain authenticated for as long as it remains on the user’s wrist. As an extra layer off security, the band also has sensors to read the wearer’s electrocardiogram, this confirms that the person wearing the Nymi Band and placing their finger on the sensor is indeed the authorized person. This authentication solution will be integrated into Werum’s PAS-X MES and is intended for use in already existing systems as well as by new customers.
