Suprema Genetec integration

June 2015 News, Access Control & Identity Management

Suprema has announced that its biometric devices can now be paired with Genetec’s Security Centre unified security platform through Entertech Systems’ BioConnect 3.0 identity management platform. Together, these products simplify the process of deploying, enrolling and managing biometrics for secure access control in any situation. The Suprema devices integrated with Genetec Security Centre include BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, BioLite Net and BioMini.

“The benefits of True Identity will offer enhanced security and extra convenience for the Synergis access control features in Genetec Security Centre,” said Young S. Moon, vice president of Suprema. “This integration includes a wide range of premium biometric-driven access control devices that are suitable for indoor and outdoor installation, and will efficiently meet a wide range of system requirements.”

This new integration greatly facilitates managing the true identities of employees, visitors and the general public. Customers no longer have to worry about the security risks involved in approximation technologies like cards, PINs, fobs or keys – which can be borrowed, shared, lost or stolen. Suprema works with customers in a wide variety of markets to ensure finger and face recognition is used effectively every day for secure access to both physical facilities and software applications.

Genetec’s flagship solution, Security Centre, is an open-platform IP security system that merges IP access control and video management within a single unified solution. A seamless and real-time link between BioConnect and Security Centre allows cardholder profiles to be captured centrally in Security Centre, thereby eliminating duplicate activities, such as the dual cardholder data entry typically found in traditional integrations between standalone systems. Additionally, access control events generated by biometric devices can be monitored centrally through Security Centre, while activity reports from doors with Suprema biometric devices can be consolidated with traditional doors and also linked with video for greater situational awareness. Genetec customers will benefit from the added features of proven biometrics, and centralised monitoring and activity reporting for traditional and biometric devices.

Axis and Suprema

Suprema biometric devices can now be paired with Axis Communications and its Axis A1001 Network Door Controller through Entertech Systems’ BioConnect 3.0 identity management platform. This new integration helps enterprises around the world successfully deploy access control systems with leading biometric technology.

Suprema’s biometric devices are integrated into the Axis A1001 Network Door Controller, an open, non-proprietary platform. The Controller meets the requirements for advanced enterprise systems as well as smaller installations. The integration allows users of axis A1001 to access biometric templates on an individual user basis without having to manage the dual data entry traditionally found in stand-alone biometric solutions.

This is accomplished with a real-time seamless sync of biometric technology into Axis A1001 through Entertech Systems’ BioConnect application. Through BioConnect’s simple graphical user interface, users can access the enrolment window to search for a user/badge and add biometric templates. With this integration, Axis customers now have the ability to easily and simply integrate proven biometrics into their access control systems.
