Access & Identity Management Handbook 2015 Access Control & Identity Management

Integration has become an important keyword that signifies the latest trend in technology. Evolutions in the field of mobile, Internet of Things and cloud computing as well as integration of such technologies have led a shift towards a new technology paradigm. As an example, the emergence of cloud technology has become abundant and now the focus is on creating connections between people, objects and services altogether. As a result, mobile communication technology such as 5G is garnering attention as we move towards a more connected society.

From 5 billion Internet connected devices in 2003 we’ve come to more than 125 billion by 2010, and it is expected in 2020 500 billion devices will be reached. It will translate to approximately seven IoT devices per person. This is showing the rapid development and evolution in this environment. Google Chrome is becoming a platform that is connecting a number of different services, IoT devices such as Google Glass and Galaxy Gear are being introduced to the market and new service paradigms such as Amazon Dash is being implemented into our daily lives.

Along with an expected Internet technology that will even connect space, it can really be said that it is the new era of hyper connectivity.

General interest in security and convenience is becoming a lot higher in lieu of all the advancements in technology, and biometrics is being highlighted as the main technology to be used with IoT and Fintech.

We are dedicated in developing higher level biometric algorithms. Suprema has recently reached a milestone in developing a biometric authentication algorithm specific for the mobile market and has continuously put efforts to remain a market leader.

On the other hand, there are needs for new complete solutions and platforms within the security industry that are different from current standards. As we promised to our partners at our Suprema Global Partner Program, Suprema has released BioStar 2 as a web-based open security platform to meet such demands.

BioStar 2 is a web-based open security platform that can integrate a number of different aspects of security from access control, video security, intrusion alarm, to fire alarm. Also overall management of the security system and integration of other web services and applications and application development capabilities increase its values as an open platform. Furthermore, BioStar 2 is designed for expandability and integration with mobile and cloud computing to meet new market demands.

Suprema will be continuously upgrading the BioStar 2 platform and will introduce a revolutionary line-up of high performance access control system devices. We will be able to keep the competitive edge as a biometrics company but even more so as a security company.

We believe that our partner’s success is key to Suprema’s success and BioStar 2 will serve as a foundation of your success.
