Access control comes in a variety of options including smart cards, PIN input or even mobile devices. Biometric access control is one option that is unique to each individual and difficult to replicate. Biometric technology makes it almost impossible for others to steal the user’s identity and eliminates concerns over misplacing cards or passwords.

When it comes to the type of biometric access control a user needs, there are many choices to consider. Fingerprint scanners are the most common, owing to developments that have significantly increased the accuracy of print reading. Facial recognition and iris scanner are also viable choices that use the face and eye structure as a means of unique identification. Advances in biometrics have increased the accuracy and security of these access control technologies.

Safran Morpho MorphoFACE biometric solution

MorphoFACE by Safran Morpho integrates state-of-the-art face recognition technologies, thus ensuring a high level of accuracy and a strong defense against fraud attempts. Based on 3D video tracking, this biometric solution enables a steady flow of users, keeping them “on-the-move” at all times, with no compromise on facial image capture quality and matching performance.

MorphoFACE is a comprehensive solution for a range of applications where throughput, security and convenience are key requirements. This includes border control, self-boarding and passenger flow management. Highly adaptable, it comes either as a compact standalone unit or as a complete, ready- to-integrate OEM kit.

Key Features:

  • “On-the-move” face capture and identification
  • Multi-camera face capture for reliable 3D video tracking
  • Non-intrusive and intuitive, requiring minimal user cooperation
  • Robust to users’ behavior and profile
  • Anti-spoofing capabilities
  • High image quality and accuracy


Fujitsu PalmSecure palm vein authentication system

The Fujitsu PalmSecure sensor uses near-infrared light to capture a person’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against pre-registered user patterns. The palm vein device can only recognize the pattern if the blood is actively flowing within the individual’s veins, which means that forgery is virtually impossible.

This advanced, vascular pattern recognition technology provides highly reliable authentication. The PalmSecure technology false accept rate is just 0.00001 percent with an exceptional false reject rate of 1 percent, all in a small form factor that generates extremely fast authentication, usually under one second.

Key Features:

  • Advanced biometric authentication algorithm delivers ultra-low false accept rate (FAR)and false reject rate (FRR)
  • Contactless palm vein authentication is hygienic and noninvasive – no residual trace technology
  • Encrypted repository for template storage and enterprise level event logging capability
  • Quick-start deployment across the enterprise raises security and adds value
  • Software development kit (SDK) for organizations deploying PalmSecure technology
  • Fast and easy registration with virtually no enrollment error


Innovatrics IFace software development kit

This face recognition SDK provides fast and accurate facial recognition and tracking functionality, facial template extraction and verification as well as image quality checks with accordance to ISO/IEC 19794-5 and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.

Key Features:

  • Delivers facial biometrics capabilities to mobile and desktop devices
  • Assures convenient support for self-service and assisted enrollment scenarios
  • Enables quality evaluation of pre-enrolled facial images as per normative requirements
  • Supports face tracking and evaluation scenarios in real-time image processing
  • Enables high speed face recognition solutions


Iris ID iCAM 7S series advanced muti-factor biometric iris reader

The iCAM 7S enables rapid iris acquisition with greater image quality for superior enrollment and recognition. The patented holographic targeting mirror is just one part of an intuitive and interactive interface that includes voice and visual feedback for increased speed.

Iris ID’s biometric solutions provide highly accurate, non-contact identification by the iris of the eye from 14 inches away while delivering security, convenience, privacy and productivity to millions of people around the world. The iCAM 7S versatility and flexibility allows for easy integration with any Wiegand or IP network based access control, time and attendance, visitor management or point of sale applications.

Key Features:

  • Fast fully automatic dual iris capture
  • Non-intrusive, non-contact user interface
  • Integrated high resolution face capture camera
  • Leverages existing infrastructure
  • Capacity for optional third-party surveillance camera
  • Remote management


Zwipe access control

Zwipe Access is a versatile fingerprint-activated contactless credential working seamlessly with existing 125 kHz or 13.56 MHz infrastructure, without upgrading or replacing any readers or backend systems. Only after activation by a fingerprint scan will the card allow communication with a reader. Zwipe continues the security of biometric authentication with the speed and convenience of contactless credentials.

Key Features:

  • Delivers consistent and accurate fingerprint reads in 1 second
  • Unique to the cardholder, only the card owner can activate card communication with the reader
