SecuGen Fingerprint Readers Now Work with Tutis Biometric Logon Software to Authenticate Users to Active Directory

Software developed by Tutis Technologies harnesses SecuGen fingerprint technology for user identification

Santa Clara, Calif. (February 6, 2008) – SecuGen Corporation, a world leading fingerprint technology company, announced today that its well-known Hamster™ line of fingerprint readers is now available with Tutis Biometric Logon, an Active Directory compatible network authentication application.

With the combination of SecuGen® Hamster fingerprint readers and Tutis Biometric Logon, Tutis Technologies Ltd. now offers a logical and physical access security solution with only one single registration of a user. SecuGen’s unique technology offers the use of a common fingerprint template across both PC-based products and embedded fingerprint modules for access control systems.

Tutis Biometric Logon is an elegant, robust and scalable fingerprint-based, password automation solution that takes passwords out of the hands of end-users, improves security, reduces help-desk costs and simplifies life for end-users and administrators alike. Password entry and password management are now completely automated and secured with fingerprint biometrics, helping organizations achieve both security as well as convenience. Incorporating SecuGen fingerprint technology, Tutis Biometric Logon has also been integrated with Citrix to offer robust enterprise security solutions.

“SecuGen manufactures high quality yet low cost fingerprint readers. This is a difficult combination to achieve,” said Mr. G. S. Chandrasekhar, Managing Director of Tutis Technologies Ltd. “We have been using the SecuGen Hamster III and Hamster Plus in a wide variety of settings including rural India, and the results have been outstanding. SecuGen’s readers perform consistently well. We are able to offer our end-users a reasonably priced fingerprint reader that is as accurate as any on the market, works under tough conditions and is extremely accurate. We could not ask for more.”

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen said, “We have worked with Tutis Technologies for many years now. They are the prototype of ideal partners that we look for all over the world. They have a deep understanding of corporate and government security applications, a well-established development organization, and with Tutis Biometric Logon, a complete suite of best-of-breed security products. We are very pleased to continue working with them.”
