HID Global Brings Reliable Biometrics Authentication to the Door with Launch of New Fingerprint Reader

Sponsored by Businesswire

In the past, biometrics solutions for access control were often deployed
with reduced security thresholds because their imaging technology, which
routinely yielded false fingerprint rejections, resulted in long
authentication lines at the door. HID Global®, a worldwide
leader in trusted identity solutions, today announced its new
fingerprint reader that merges credential excellence with HID’s
globally-patented multispectral imaging technology to address this issue
and fuel broad adoption of biometrics at the door.

The high-performance iCLASS SE® RB25F fingerprint reader
provides an unrivalled experience by dramatically increasing image
capture performance and fingerprint matching in under a second,
significantly reducing delays that were previously symptomatic of
biometric solutions.

“Driven by increasing threats to an organization’s security, biometric
authentication is one of the fastest growing segments in the access
control market,” said Stephen Carney, Vice President of Product
Marketing, Physical Access Control Solutions with HID Global. “The
powerful combination of HID’s highly reliable Lumidigm multispectral
technology and the reader’s robust construction with IP67 and
anti-vandal IK09 ratings now enables customers to deploy fingerprint
authentication across a wide range of real-life environments. The reader
is also field-configurable over a network, and is designed to ease
migration from traditional and existing fingerprint reader solutions.”

HID’s multispectral imaging technology captures images from both the
surface and sub-surface of the skin so that all types of fingerprints,
from people of any age, can be read quickly and reliably in cold, dry,
dirty, wet and other challenging environmental conditions. This, coupled
with trusted liveness detection for spoof prevention, enables the iCLASS
SE RB25F reader to provide real-time validation that fingerprints are
genuine and belong to a living person who is physically present at the
authentication point.

To maximize security, the reader includes built-in optical tamper
protection, and it supports the Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP),
as well as HID’s Seos® technology for multi-layered
authentication between the reader and credentials.

Security administrators can download the complimentary HID®
Biometric Manager™, an on-premise software tool for configuring and
managing one or many iCLASS SE RB25F readers. Built on a server- and
browser-based client architecture, the HID Biometric Manager is ideal
for enrolling users’ fingerprints (for both 1:1 verification and 1: N
identification modes), assigning access rights and conducting many other
functions. The comprehensive tool can also be used to securely log all
door events where the readers have been installed and to upgrade readers
in the field remotely over a TCP/IP connection.

Certified in several major geographies worldwide and available with
multiple interface options for various system architectures, the new
iCLASS SE RB25F can be used with all popular industry-standard high
frequency credential technologies (including HID Mobile Access®
Mobile IDs, Seos, iCLASS SE, iCLASS®, MIFARE DESFire®,
MIFARE® Classic).
