Virtual Case Management LLC Selects SecuGen® Hamster™ Plus and Hamster™ IV Fingerprint Readers
Santa Clara, California (December 13, 2010) – SecuGen, the world’s leading optical fingerprint device vendor, is pleased to announce that Virtual Case Management® has selected SecuGen’s line of Hamster fingerprint readers for integration with their Virtual Case Management (VCM) software. VCM is a paperless database case management solution for investigators, process servers, intelligence analysts and the security industry. Administrators can easily and securely manage the access rights to all documents as well as video and audio attachments. Employees, subcontractors and clients are all able to log in securely via internal email and instant messaging.
SecuGen’s Hamster Plus and Hamster IV fingerprint readers are world renowned for their accuracy, durability, and affordability, making SecuGen number one in the world in price competitiveness. The Hamster IV is a FIPS 201/PIV compliant reader that, when combined with SecuGen’s NIST/MINEX compliant feature extraction and matching algorithms, provides a fully PIV compliant solution.
“We concluded that SecuGen’s feature extraction and matching algorithms are fast and have a very low failure rate, near zero in fact,” said Darren Epstein, the President of Virtual Case Management LLC. “Our testing revealed a very high build quality with every biometric reader built to the highest standards, resulting in fingerprint readers that are quick and accurate. We also tried to trick the system by using a variety of tactics, such as, lifting the previous print via tape, however all our efforts to bypass the security failed. These fingerprint algorithms have been rigorously tested by NIST’s MINEX test program to certify that they’re accurate, interoperable and robust enough to work in the diverse environments of federal agencies and commercial facilities across the nation.”
Jeff Brown, VP of Sales for SecuGen stated, “We are very proud of our relationship with Virtual Case Management LLC. Working with them has been a pleasure, and we believe that they are providing a greatly needed application for organizations of all types that find case management to be of growing importance.”
Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen added, “We are quite pleased to have our fingerprint readers selected by Virtual Case Management LLC. We strive to develop products that Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) can integrate into their solutions and feel confident of the quality of the resulting integration. Our relationship with Virtual Case Management LLC is a perfect example of this.”
