April 2017 Access Control & Identity Management, Security Services & Risk Management, Products & Solutions

Suprema recently announced that the company’s SFU-S20 fingerprint modules have been integrated into the new BioWolf LE, a rugged tablet PC from BioRugged. SFU-S20 is an FBI PIV and FAP20 certified USB fingerprint scanner designed to provide a high-level biometric security solution for identity management applications. Protected by an IP65-rated rugged structure, SFU-S20 features a slim optical sensor with a larger platen and the latest anti-spoofing (live fingerprint detection) technology.

“The BioWolf LE was built for various applications in mobile environments, and thanks to Suprema, adding a high-precision fingerprint sensor and the convenience and security of biometrics is a core advantage of the product,” said Hof Retief, CEO at BioRugged.

BioWolf Le is a rugged and versatile biometric tablet PC developed for various applications including voter registration, logistics, health care, industrial protection and banking. Along with fingerprint authentication, BioWolf LE provides an array of specialised features including RFID, NFC, Mifare compliant, fingerprint sensor and full connectivity suite 2G, 3G and 4G.

Upon its launching, BioWolf LE has already been selected for a number of public and commercial projects including SIM card registration (Telco) in African countries.

Walter Rautenbach, MD at neaMetrics, the local distributor of Suprema and BioRugged in Africa, is enthusiastic about adding the BioWolf LE to its portfolio. “BioWolf LE creates new horizons for Suprema, providing a fresh twist in identity management and will help in bridging the gap between civil biometric ID management and mobile time management. Custom biometric-enabled Android app development is limited only by imagination and our local team of engineers are ready to assist developers in realising their dreams.”

The Wolf LE, its supporting apps and its development platform will be showcased at Securex SA, to be held in Johannesburg between 30 May and 1 June.
