Bioscrypt Integrates SecuGen’s Fingerprint Sensor into the V-Station (Optical) Reader
World leading access control vendor chooses SecuGen® sensor
Santa Clara, Calif. (November 19, 2007) SecuGen is proud to announce that Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider of identity and access management solutions, has chosen to integrate SecuGen’s fingerprint sensor into their V-Station (Optical) reader.
With the introduction of the V-Station (Optical), Bioscrypt has added SecuGen’s optical sensor technology to its award-winning line of readers for physical access control. Bioscrypt’s patented fingerprint pattern matching algorithm and supporting firmware are the foundation for the identity verification performance of the new reader.
SecuGen specializes in the design and manufacture of high quality fingerprint sensors. SecuGen’s optical sensors are engineered for image quality, durability and accuracy.
“Bioscrypt believes organizations should have the power to choose between a variety of hardware systems and that’s why we created our fingerprint matching algorithm to be interoperable with a variety of sensors,” said Robert M. Douglas, President and CEO of Bioscrypt. “Organizations may choose to deploy different types of sensors in order to meet various needs and the V-Station (Optical) provides them with another robust option from Bioscrypt.”
“Bioscrypt is recognized as the world leader in innovation and performance when it comes to fingerprint biometric access control readers, which, by extension, has made the Company the most important in the market to work with,” said Won Lee, President and CEO of SecuGen. “We’re pleased to provide them with our industry-leading optical sensor technology.”
The V-Station (Optical) can be used for dual- or multi-factor authentication by supporting not only fingerprint biometric verification but personal identification numbers, proximity cards, tokens and smart cards. The SecuGen sensor adds ruggedness and performance to the V-Station (Optical) with its scratch-resistant finger platen and patented optic design that reduces distortion and increases image contrast compared to traditional optical sensors in the market.
