Lenel and Bioscrypt to deliver biometrics solutions

December 2002 Access Control & Identity Management

Lenel Systems International and Bioscrypt have announced the availability of a new family of fully integrated fingerprint biometrics solutions for facility access control.

Called Bioscrypt OnGuard, the new line-up integrates Bioscrypt's awarding-winning fingerprint biometrics technology and Veri-Series readers with Lenel's OnGuard Total Security Knowledge Management Solutions portfolio. Through a co-marketing agreement with Bioscrypt, Lenel will seamlessly integrate and resell the Bioscrypt readers, and the two companies will jointly promote the new family of products.

Bioscrypt OnGuard is a fully integrated fingerprint biometric solution for facility access. When facility access is desired, the individual presents a smartcard, proximity card or pin number, depending on the type of reader being utilised, and the device will prompt the individual to present his or her fingerprint; the fingerprint is then verified in realtime against the biometric data on record. If there is a match, access is granted by the OnGuard system based on the cardholder's permission levels. Based on the customer's needs, options are available to securely store access fingerprint records on smartcards or at the OnGuard intelligent access controller.

The actual devices that scan the finger, known collectively as Bioscrypt's Veri-Series, are a diverse line of integrated fingerprint readers that includes:

* V-Smart iCLASS, integrated fingerprint reader with HID iCLASS smartcard technology.

* V-Smart, integrated MIFARE smartcard and fingerprint readers.

* V-Flex, add-on fingerprint solutions for existing Wiegand-based readers.

With Bioscrypt OnGuard, these readers are now seamlessly integrated with a total security management solution that combines access control, alarm monitoring, ID card production and personnel management. This means customers have one system to administer, one user interface, one cardholder enrolment process and one database to manage for all of these functions.
