HID recently announced partnerships with four leading biometric technology providers. The partners are introducing a new range of eProx-enabled biometric readers that are compatible with all HID-based card access systems. The dual technology readers enhance the security of highly sensitive areas without requiring additional systems or infrastructure.
“The industry has been asking for a lower cost, easy-to-instal biometric solution that integrates seamlessly into existing installations,” said Julia Webb, Director of Marketing at Biometric Identification. “One of the technologies they requested was HID’s proximity technology. Our new eProx-enabled Veriprox reader interfaces with existing 26 bit access control systems, is less than two-and-a-half inches wide (60 mm) and is competitively priced.”
“Proximity is the dominant identification technology, so it was important to work in conjunction with it,” said Bill Spence, Vice-President of Biometric Security at Identix. “We wanted our products to be compatible with HID’s large installed base. Our eProx-enabled biometric reader, the Fingerscan V20 is uniquely designed for maximum ergonomics and easy integration with existing card access systems.”
“The addition of eProx proximity technology will speed up verification times while making our biometric readers more accurate and reliable,” said Joe Turek, President of Biometrics 2000.com. “HID is the most widely accepted technology provider in the industry. By using a technology everyone is familiar with, we have eliminated the need for additional training and given dealers a biometric reader that is easier to sell.”
“With the addition of HID’s eProx technology, we were able to eliminate the requirement for users to manually enter a PIN code and accelerate verification to less than a second,” explain Pete Rauholt, Product Marketing Engineer with Recognition Systems. “Our choice of HID as a technology provider was based on their leadership of the proximity access market.”
“The new eProx-enabled biometric readers easily enable end-users and dealers to add biometric identification to their current portfolio of technology solutions,” said John Menzel, Technology Integration Manager for HID. “Dealers now have the opportunity to offer an affordably priced biometric solution to the worldwide community of HID users.”
The eProx-enabled biometric readers feature dual identity verification capability that provides the highest levels of security available. Users will present their HID proximity card and their finger or hand to the readers simultaneously. The readers compare the cardholder information and scan against a database of templates. Positive or negative verification occurs within seconds.
